Medicine Ball, you are my enemy

Exercise: 30 minutes elliptical machine, 15 minute workout with Maia with reps so crazy I can't even describe them, 3 sets each leg press, hamstring lift, sexy lady leg squeezes (both in and out). Cals. unknown because my HRM ran out of battery!

Breakfast: a Special K with strawberries knock-off, Silk Vanilla lite, a banana

Snack: cranberries, a single elf cookie!

Lunch: a cheese quesadilla (two tortillas), fresh salsa I made last night, steamed and sauteed spinach and baby bellas.

Snack: Trader Joe's mini carrot cake. Half of it.

Dinner: Green tea, White Monkey tea leaf. So mild and delicious!

Today was my first free session with a personal trainer. I have a second free one on Friday. It was short, but it was intense. Do you ever notice that people who work with trainers at the gym are always doing a whole bunch of crazy shit? Jumping up and down on blocks, dancing around with heavy-ass basketballs (or medicine balls, to the more gym-experienced), crazy floor exercises, etc. Why do they make us do this? Especially when there are so many more respectable options on the floor. Why can't we just lift weights together? Why do you and I have to toss a medicine ball back and forth while bending our knees? Why do I have to simulate picking something up and putting it on the top shelf?

Because the trainers like to know that they have your full attention and they can get you to do whatever they want you to do.
