After many, many years of abandoning a workout lifestyle, I'm back to the gym tonight and asking for encouragement. I am 52 years, chose to get a trainer for a few sessions to learn how to lift properly, and I'm both excited and nervous. Last year, I released over 50 pounds only to have 35 pounds return to date. Same old story: consuming more food than my body requires and little to no exercise.
This commitment began with waking up (literally) one morning and feeling "winded" before my feet hit the floor. Later that day, I was aware that just taking a flight of stairs left me breathing heavier. My first goal was to sign up at the gym. Getting some training sessions makes me feel more accountable and less scared about working out (particularly lifting) incorrectly.
All support is appreciated!
