Usually, I think all of that Holistic stuff is a bunch of garbage or rather a big steaming pile of horse dung. So, why now, am I considering it?
With my goal weight just within reach, I figure I am going to have to go through maintenance, which scares me to death. I have talked about this in other blogs. I am so afraid that I am going to gain my weight back that I need all the support I can get.
A friend of mine recommended Be Well Associates
The Nutritionist I am seeing, Angie, also has a lot of experience in treating addiction. Not only do I think she will help me chose the right foods and help me on the path to clean eating, but I also think she will help me with my food addictions. I am thinking that with her support, the support of my trainer, my medical (surgical) team, my RD, my family doctor and my WLS Support Group that I might just make it.
I am not really into the entire "detoxification" thing, because I don't really believe that you can detox the body, but I am hopeful that clean eating and other things will help me be a continued success.
The cost is a little much -- $150 for the first appointment, but can I really put a price on my health? I don't think I can. I will easily be able to afford it if I make a few cuts elsewhere. Looks like I won't be hitting up that awesome sale at Aeropostale this week or next!
I know people may think I am crazy, but this is something I honestly feel will help me be the person I want to be.
In other news - I had a great workout at the gym today. Strength and Cardio. I am trying to convince my co-worker to do C25K with me. I printed us out a schedule. I just need to get a routine down and I think I will be alright.
Here is what I am looking at... may be a little intense, but I can make adjustments
Monday - Train w/ Trainer
Tuesday - if I am off, PC Fit Level 1 (slower paced boot camp for beginners - need to talk to the trainer about this) C25K
Wednesday - Strength and Cardio
Thursday - Same as Tuesday - If I am off work PC Fit and C25K - if I work, just C25k
Friday - Strength and Cardio
Saturday - C25K
Sunday -- Not a dang thing!!!
According to my Gym's Facebook Page
"ProCare Altoona is now offering PC Fit Level 1 classes. These are 60 minute classes that are designed for the someone who is new to Functional Training or does not feel ready for the intensity of the PC Fit class. These classes will use the same equipment and program design as our regular PC Fit program but with a lower intensity and an emphasis on proper mechanics and education. The design allows the pace to be individualized to challenge all levels of fitness. Come in and try it out for free. You will quickly understand that anyone can do it and the results are real."
My goal is eventually to quit personal training and just do PC Fit. I still have a long way to go before I can do PC Fit though.
I think that is all for now
