EXERCISE = DEATH!

Hey Y'all, I am 33 yrs old and 14 years post gastric RNY and have kept the weight off until recently. I have gained 20 lbs in a year, due to life and work. However I just hired a personal trainer and have been following his meal plan since last Tuesday and feel great.

I have lost 13lbs since Jan 8 w/ out any exercise and one week on the new meal plan.

On this meal plan I do not crave anything, have given sodas up completely and have to make myself eat at times just because I am not hungry. (This is very rare for me) Before I was a snacker all day long to keep my sugar levels normal because I am hypoglycemic. I have not had any issues with sugar since meal plan started.

Here is my dilemma, yesterday was our first work out day and I thought I was dying. All we were doing were weight circuits at a good pace. I got so exhausted and my heart rate was like 145. My stomach started hurting and I had to vomit but it was more like dry heaving so lets just say nauseated.

30 minutes before the workout I had a banana and normally sip water throughout the day, so I can't officially tell you how much I had to drink.

After the work out I continued to be nauseated and my stomach was cramping/ burning. It just felt like it was in a knot. I tried to eat, ate a little really wasn't hungry 30 minutes post workout.

So here we are today, I ate breakfast like normal, 2 boiled eggs and 2 slices turkey bacon at 7:30am. Been sipping on 30 oz of water since 5:30 am and there is a 1/4 left. I just tried to drink a protein shake (almond milk, banana, 1 scoop protein) at 9:30am and could not fini**** and my stomach is hurting again. I do sit at a desk, so I got up stretched, went and walked outside a long ways and stretched there as well. Back at my desk and it feels like a burning sensation in my stomach.

Yes my muscles are sore but my stomach hurts on the inside not like a muscle soreness.

Note* I also had a bowel obstruction 2 yrs post op and they removed 2 feet of rotten bowel and reconnected it to the stomach.

Has anyone experienced this or can shed some light on whats going on?

Your heart rate sounds fine. I believe 130-160 is the target range for someone your age. 190 would be the max.

Heart rate depends on the person body types.My normal heart rate is 98-110 when it become130+ I cant tolerate it. But my father normal rate is 140 when it up to 160+ then he feels pain. So I think it depends on human body types.

It sounds like you overdid it - not heart rate wise, but the rest of your body wise.

A first session with a personal trainer shouldn't be "work out until you puke." It should be a series of tests to determine your ability so that you won't work out until you puke. Is your trainer certified? With what certifying body?

Sadly, too many personal trainers aren't very "personal." They have plans and try to make everyone fit into them instead of tailoring the workout to their client.

What you said is so true. I know my trainer never wants me to run so hard that I am going to be sick or work out that hard. She says it is not good you and that is not working out is about. I wonder sometimes if trainers get this idea from the biggest loser

One of the issues, at least in the US, is that requirements to call oneself a personal trainer vary from state to state and are very lax in general. So pretty much anyone who gets it in their head that they want to train people - can. :/
