Taking a work break is great for trying new ideas, especially ones that would have a direct impact on how you do things. I increased my hydration, and I had to (emphasis) stop to take more washroom breaks, which normally I wouldn't do. Hence instituting change during a work lull.
Best friend offered to walk with me twice in the last week. A very thoughtful gesture and appreciated. Even asked me if I thought I was doing enouch cardio. In another life, I would have been offended, but I inquired further, and received a heartfelt reply. There is more support out there than you would believe if you are ready to accept it.
I am willing to try a higher calorie food plan, just to see if I feel that there is more in the tank for doing the more intense workouts that the trainer is recommending. I have to admit that the intensity scared me -- I didn't even use HR monitor, because I didn't want to see the numbers. But I let the trainer monitor the workout, and tried to memorize the feeling. It was something that I had only previously experienced when doing professional training for a fitness class.
That's the latest, for now. In the past two weeks I have been doing more reading from my personal fitness library. Let's see in the next six weeks how the pieces fit together.
