I met with Miss Ashley Carlsen this afternoon at Lifetime Fitness for my first personal training session. Ashley said she might stop by the blog to see what I would say about her, so I guess I need to watch myself...who knows what she'd do to me next time if I say something bad about her! Ashely, you are great, and thanks for not yelling at me Jillian-style!
Seriously, it was a grueling workout for me, but I learned soooo many new exercises that are going to increase both my strength and flexibility. Some of them I couldn't even do, but that won't be true for long! I love having something to work toward, a challenge, so this is all good. When I walked out of the club and down the steps, my legs were like jello ~ made me laugh right out loud!
On the food front, I made some veggie lasagna when I got home in an effort to drastically increase my veggie intake . . . fire roasted tomatoes, Italian no-meat sauce, cauliflower, carrots and bell pepper, layered with a mixture of cheeses, spinach, garlic and Italian spices in between brown rice lasagna noodles. It's in the oven right now and smells AMAZING!
So, as I recover tonight from Ashley's
Sore and smiling,
