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 that...it 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!
