Now what

Saturday, December 08, 2012

So bummed out right now. I finally, after ages of waffling, get up the nerve to hire a personal trainer. Sent a couple of e-mails back and forth to see if we were a good 'fit'. And then...nothing. :(

I know logically that something probably happened on her end--computer crash or family emergency or something. But I don't know that, do I? Maybe she just decided I wasn't worth the time or effort to respond to in a timely manner.

Sux. The other two trainers at my gym don't really appeal to me. One is this nice-seeming but generic lady who's big into pilates--I don't know, she doesn't seem like the type that's into heavy weights much. Or she is the typical 'girls just want to look skinny' trainer. The guy I frankly find rude and dismissive, and can't imagine how a young jock/professional weightlifter could POSSIBLY relate to a 40-yr old sedentary housewife. Although his weight training background does appeal to me. And I have seen him training with middle-aged sedentary housewives, lol. So maybe I'm judging too harshly? I just don't want to waste time and money on him.

I also am always hampered by this sense of 'if it was meant to be, it would happen'. In other words, maybe getting this trainer isn't supposed to happen for me. Did I mention that I signed up for Stretch and Recovery program that she was teaching? And both times they cancelled it due to 'not enough interest'? Yeah--adds to the sense that I'm not meant to connect with this person, even though I really liked her when she taught my pilates golf class.


My other option I suppose is to go check out another gym--nearer to where I live. It's smaller and more oriented toward working with a trainer. Only bad thing is it's in a strip mall area right next to a bar and a McDonald's, lol. Might be hard to resist those mochas in the winter and smoothies in the summer. I think the cost might be prohibitive though--so it'll be back to choosing the other two trainers. Dammit.

What to do, what to do...

In other news--lol--get to go Christmas shopping today, oh joy. Should be a fun-filled afternoon of too many people, lol. I miss the days pre-marriage when I boycotted Christmas and never bought gifts for anyone. Soooo simple, those days. :p

    Try one more time to get in touch with the trainer you liked. If it doesn't work out try one of the other two. I'm sure it isn't personal!

    Hey, you're not a sedentary housewife.... You work out of the house, at a fairly physically demanding job....

    You may feel like you're sedentary when you're at home, but if all your activity is at the gym or at work, maybe it's good to have downtime at home??
