So, I bit the bullet and hired a personal trainer! EEEK! I have him for 12 sessions - 2 times a week every week until the wedding! His name is J.D. and he seriously kicks my butt! OMG! I had my first session with him on Monday morning and I literally still cannot walk...and I have to go back in today for my 2nd session!!! He did a "baseline" test with me on Monday, just to see my levels for everything. He said he was surprised by how in shape I am (which was a surprise to me too!), so that means he'll be able to push me even harder than he originally thought - GREAT!
He showed me proper form for all these exercises I've been apparently doing wrong - a real correct squat is SO hard...and I almost fell backwards on my butt while doing them because he makes me get down so low. And I never do any upper body stuff, so that was seriously intense...I wanted to cry at the end of it all.
But he promises that I will definitely see major results by the end of the 6 weeks and I will have toned arms and abs by the wedding. I'm willing to put in some hard work and sweat for the next 6 weeks if it means that I will be a buff bride!!I'm sure I will be doing updates on my progress over the next few weeks - maybe I'll even do photo comparisons of before and after!
