Personal Trainer

Well, the food journal is not working out. I've got to get my butt in gear with this.

On a different note, I just signed up for an assessment with a personal trainer at my company's gym. I'm kind of nervous because she said it's going to take about 45 minutes to an hour. I feel confident that I won't totally embarrass myself.

I like the conversation we had. She actually enjoys working with individuals who are "less fit." It reminds me of an experience I had about two years ago when I tried to hire a personal trainer. I didn't find anyone who was that enthuasitic to work with me. I was in horrible shape then. It seems like a lifetime ago. I don't think I could have made it across the street back then. Anyhow, it was still disheartening and discouraging that no one was that willing to work with me. I remember thinking...if I was to decent shape, I wouldn't need a personal trainer. At first I thought it was a male thing. However, when I contacted a female, I filled out her paperwork and she never called me back. These people were interested in training professional athletes, not an out-of-shape 40 yr. old woman. Oh well....

Anyhow, this trainer seems enthuasitic. It's probably because she's young, a recent graduate, and hasn't been jaded. Lol!

  1. You're going to love working with a trainer! I've been seeing one for about a month now, and I love it! He definitely pushes me much harder and farther than I would ever push myself. It's so amazing to see what I'm actually capable of. Good luck!
