Ok. Get this.
Our personal trainer, Chris, went on vacation back to his hometown of California, the last week of Feb. The first of March, when I found out that my unemployment was ending in 2 weeks, I called Billie and told her I had to stop paying for the trainer, because that's $60/month I just can't justify if Dwayne's going to be paying all of my bills until I find a job. He would let me keep the $20/month gym membership, but not the personal trainer that we see once a week. Since I had just paid for the month of March a couple of days before, I have this month left with the trainer.
The same day I told Billie I was cancelling and only have this month of March left, she texted me later that afternoon and told me the gym called her....that Chris, on vacation in Cali, decided not to come back!!!! So...they assigned us to a new trainer....a girl named Theresa. She took our measurments last Thursday, and that's when I found out I lost 1.5 inches off of my bat wings over the last month! Tonight was our first workout with her, and I'll only get to see her a couple of more weeks, and then my personal training days are over until I can find a friggin' job and afford to start it up again.
After our workout on arms and abs (she's a killer, by the way)....she asked me how much water I'm drinking. I told her (3) 32 oz. glasses a day. She told me that's not near enough....drink more. How much more? She said I should be drinking 1 oz. of water for each pound I weigh. ***Brain freeze after I do some quick math in my head*** Ummmm....that's like (30) 8 oz. glasses of water a day. She said, "Yep...I weigh 156 lbs and I drink 156 ounces of water a day." So, according to her, I'm only drinking enough water for a 96 lb. person. I asked her then why is the recommended amount of water 6-8 glasses a day. She said that's all you need to live and function okay....but if you're lifting weights and building muscle, it needs to be one ounce for every pound you weigh.
I started to say I'll think about it...I said, "I'll thhh....I'll try." She said all she asks is that I try!!
Ok....so has anyone else ever heard of this before? I really just can't even fathom drinking that much water in a day....much the same way I can't fathom eating 2300 cals a day/7 days a week and actually losing weight, like the nutrionist told me to do. I swear, the more I try to involve myself in this fitness crap and try to get in better shape, the crazier the advice gets!!!
Came in at 1800 cals again today, and as you just read, another great workout. I get so red-faced and red-chested & so drenched in sweat....soaking wet head and clothes...that I think my trainers are worried I'm near heart failure. Both Chris and Theresa have asked if I'm ok...if I got in the tanning bed before I worked out because I'm so red, etc. And Billie never sweats. Ever. She even commented tonight after the workout that she was actually SWEATING tonight (told you Theresa was a killer). I don't get it...but whatever. Maybe some people just don't sweat no matter how hard they work. I leave the gym every night looking like I just got blasted with a water hose....sooooo attractive, lol. Another good day in the books. 'Nite friends. :)
