Something Nice for ME!

Saturday, March 05, 2011

I committed to doing something nice for myself this week that I believe will go a long way towards helping me on this journey.

I met with two personal trainers (husband and wife team) who meet with clients in their home. I went for my first session yesterday and felt so comfortable here. There is only likely to be one other person there training at the same time that I am.

It felt so good to have someone totally focused on me and working with me for a solid hour on various exercises and machines. This first session was not too intense and she kept telling me was a "discovery" session where she could observe me and I could begin to get familiar with the various machines and the routine.

They had a bottled water with my name on it waiting for me and a fresh towel.

I loved it! Today I woke with that subtle burn associated with having worked muscles that have not worked in a very long time.

This commitment is going to be expensive, but I realize that I am worth it. If this helps me to move further along this journey, then why would I deprive myself? I may need to give something else up in order to afford this...but I deserve it!

I want this to be a lifestyle change...not just 10 weeks and then I stop! I am 58 years old and the trainer shared with me that at my age, it is tough! I will need to keep this up to have long term results. And she said that seeing the results could take up to 3 months - although I will feel it in my clothing.

I am excited about the weeks ahead and learning and becoming aware and making progress. I will post my results!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    Be sure and feed your family well from Grain Brain instructions.
    We have saved money eating this way and not eating out.

    Oh I hope you are still having fun with the personal trainers. I just signed up for 10 sessions with a new trainer. We've had a few sort of freebee chat/sessions and I know I'm going to benefit from my workouts.

    I have been working with a personal trainer for about 6 months now and I LOVE it! Yes, it is expensive but I cannot imagine not doing it anymore. I can only afford once a week so I get as much as I can out of that session as possible then supplement with my own stuff for the rest of the week.

    Yea for you!!!!
