Yesterday I got a call from a friend, and he asked me if I want to be his “personal trainer“. Of course he knows that I train my ass off the last year and be busy with the health of my body, so he want to join me and become fit and healthy. well, to be honest… the last two or three weeks I wasn’t this motivated. The weather was worse and my body did not feel 100%. So this is a good way to make myself more motivated too.
I really like the idea to help him! I always love to help people, and this is a good opportunity for both of us. So we are going to make a strict schedule for the trainings.
Six weeks plan:
Power,-walk or run 3/4 times a week. And other days doing workouts with weights, at home or in the gym. We have one rest day and we are making a plan for six weeks that we may not eat: extra sugars, salt, unhealthy snacks, and only ‘clean food’, we can’t cancel the trainings or cheat. Also drink two or three liter of water each day and try to sleep 8 hours at night.
Tonight he has his first run, I am really excited actually.. He want to lose 15 kg so we have a good goal! Normally I don’t like to count calories or weigh on a scale. In my opinion it doesn’t say anything, and it makes you feel unhappy too! It is just a number and I think that you have to feel comfortable in your body. If it is big or small or short legs or whatever, some things you can not change about yourself. You have to learn to live with that. Embrace that you have that nose so you can breath, or those short legs that move you everywhere you want. But the size of your body that is all up to you! If you are to big but happy with your body, why would you change that? Why is skinny more beautiful? I think it doesn’t matter how you look but it does matter how you feel in it. And a scale or BMI test doesn’t know how you feel. Your body is yours, only yours! And if you want to lose weight, perfect.. do it in a healthy way but don’t count calories or check your BMI or go on a scale every morning. That doesn’t help anybody, if your muscles have grown they are probably heavier then the fat you ever had… So I hate the scale and in my opinion it is a liar.
But I think it is good for him to have this 15 kg goal, if his body looks and feel more healthy I am sure he will forget the number. Haha
