Okay so I have pondered the idea of getting a personal trainer for quite some time. I haven't committed to the idea simply because of the financial aspect...hello recession!
Then I thought long and hard and decided that I have been doing this by myself for so long by myself that I do need some help. Sure I made some progress...lost some weight, some inches, feeling better, etc. but now I feel stuck! I did kick up my workouts and I did tighten my nutrition but now I am waving the white flag and I'm ready to ask for help. While it feels like a luxury, it truly is a cry for help and guidance. I NEED to lose this weight. This is far from a vanity issue...my health is at stake with a family history of diabetes, hypertension, cancer and heart disease.
So the plan was to interview a few trainers and see who would be a good fit for me. Well it was easier than I thought because I totally clicked with the first trainer I interviewed. She's so cool...has great ideas, a great sense of humor, similar views on health and nutrition. So I signed up for 4 sessions this month and will probably do twice a week for April.
I worked out this morning with her and I must say...WOW! This is the push I needed. She worked me hard...push-ups, pull-ups and abs, oh my!
I also liked that she she asked me to let go of the worry and control and to trust her and let her take care of planning and strategies. That felt like a relief!
I am excited and I am worth it!
