8. Have you ever worked with a physical trainer? One on one? Small group? What skills or talents did the trainer have that helped you? What didn't help?
I worked with a trainer one on one when I started at the gym. He showed me how to use the weight machines and helped set up a workout plan for me, then set me free. He was very patient and demonstrated everything before asking me to do it, so I knew what it was supposed to look like. I would like to rejoin the gym and work with him again on an updated workout plan, but finances are tight, so I will just keep doing what I am doing. I am successfully maintaining weight, but I don't think I am gaining much strength right now.
Had a lunch meeting today out of town. They served us leftover turkey dinner from last night. It was pretty tasty. I love a traditional turkey dinner. I did stop myself from adding gravy to everything, and restrained myself on dessert. I also had time for a better breakfast this morning and had some oatmeal with my banana. The weather is crappy today... a rain/snow mix. That means Cooper doesn't want to walk much, so I spent a few minutes on the elliptical and some on the rower, in addition to a little yoga.
I am trying to decide what to make for dinner. I am thinking roasted vegetables would be good, but I am low on protein so far today, so I need to consider adding some protein to the mix. I have chicken in the freezer I could cook. Hmmmm...
