Default Hopefully back to stay

Hi ladies,
Well, I fell off plan earlier this months and had a hard time bringing myself back. I decided that I needed some extra oomph so I got myself a trainer and a nutritionist. I have my first official meeting tonight. I went to an informal meeting once last week and they did a flexibility test (45 degree angle, they want me to be at a 90 degree! Eesh..) So, we'll see. I have a 10 week subscription and we'll see if I can lose at least 20 pounds. They said it's an attainable goal so I am hoping with the kick in the pants of an official "boss" of weight loss, I'll stick with it. (Plus, for the money I am paying, I can't afford to fail! ).
Anyway, sorry for leaving girls, but I will stick with you ladies now! I hope.

Welcome back! You too, Cac!
One of the most motivating things you can do is to come here every day to give and get support.

Well, the trainer gave me some interesting advice on work outs. Rather than split the days between Cardio and Weights, do weights before your cardio and your body will burn fat faster and more efficiently. I never knew this. But still, careful not to over-do it. Basically, he helps me to work out better becase before I never knew how to pace myself.

Wow! That is interesting. I was doing it backwards. Cardio then weights. How cool to know that.
