Gift to myself
Wednesday, January 29, 2014
My birthday is in three weeks, give or take. My husband has been asking me what I want. Initially I said I wanted all of the Harry Potter movies. (Don't judge me!) I like to put them on for background noise when I'm doing stuff during the day. I was able to record most of them on the DVR last week, and to be very honest, I don't think I could figure out how to play the DVDs if I did get them. So the DVR thing is working out just fine.
I have plenty of jewelry, most that I can't wear since my daughter likes to pull on earrings and necklaces. My wedding set is tight, though I'm hoping that by sticking to my plan here they won't be tight for too much longer. I have a couple of stand in rings that I wear on occasion, so I certainly don't need any more rings.
So then thinking in a health focused fashion I suggested that I get a bike for my birthday. That way I would have something to use to mix up my workouts if I couldn't get to the gym. Hubs is all for bikes, but seeing as its still the snowy season here in NY he thinks we should wait on bikes until the spring when we'll actually be able to use them.
I was at the gym today (fourth day in a row!) and saw a thing on the wall about a special on personal training. I've never had a personal trainer before. I've never been this big before either, so I think it may be something nice to do for myself to sign up with a trainer for a few sessions to reacquaint myself with some of the gym equipment and have someone help guide me toward some good workouts for me.
I haven't inquired yet, but I'm a little lost when it comes to picking the who. There must be 20 trainers at the gym I go to. I know everyone has their own fitness philosophy and things they like. I really have no idea as to go about picking someone that is right for me.
