Trainers are people, too...
Wednesday, February 27, 2013
I am a fitness professional, and was amazed to discover that I am human! What a shock when I started to go through menopause and gained 15 pounds. I do everything right, right? I eat right, I exercise, I get almost enough rest. I'm a trainer for cryin' out loud, and my skinny jeans don't fit. Who knew? Maybe my clothes dryer needs to be adjusted????
Then came the fateful day when I was sent a picture by my adorable daughter-in-law. There I was with my granddaughter, and I didn't recognize the woman in the picture. I was struck dumb. Those who know me know that "speechless" isn't the way I roll. I need help with this mess I'm in, and I am turning to my new community for courage and encouragement. I know that somehow this is going to make me a better fitness coach. I am going to invite my clients aboard this ride. I want them to know that the person they look to for support doesn't have all the answers, but she's sure as hell is striving to get smarter.
