Time for an update

I have updated my sparkpage, now time for a blog!
A lot has been going on.....

I have given up my trainer (or maybe she gave up on me!). I am so frustrated but that's ok, I am moving on........back in October when I applied for my new position I had told her that I may not be able to workout as much as I had been with her as I would be out of town all week. She said, no problem, we will work something out. Yeah right! Anyhow, as you know I got the position and have been away a lot. I kept in touch with her and was attending another gym (still in the same company) closer to my work. She decided that as a special favor, she did not do this for just anyone (sure!) that she would work out with me on Saturdays and would run 2 sessions with her together to which I agreed. Then after a few weeks, she was talking to me about working with another trainer on Saturdays to which I said no. The reason I was working with her was because she has lost a lot of weight herself and seemed to understand (at the beginning anyhow!) I did not want to work out with a male. She agreed and said OK we will continue as we are, then a couple of weeks later she calls me and tells me that either I can work out with someone else or I can get all my money back for the sessions that I had paid for (over $1000). I had been asking if this was a possibility for months and was told no! But now that it suits her, it is now an option?? As I have mentioned before I had hurt my shoulder and instead of physio I was working with her to strengthen that too. So I guess I am now on my own! I am very frustrated and hurt about this as I have been with her for a year! I think she has lost the initial reason why she began as a trainer.

On a brighter note, my DD has got a job near where I live, so she has moved in with me! We go swimming every night after work and that is helping my shoulder!

I am attending weight watchers and wearing my fit bit. For now, I will try the swimming and walking, forget about the gym for now. Though I do have a yoga mat, ball and weights at home :)

Thanks for reading my rav!

    So sorry to hear about this. You are probably better off without that trainer. I hope you can actually get your money back-that would be good. I think your plan of swimming and walking is a good one. Also there are free workout videos here at spark.
    So glad Rachel has a job where you two can enjoy some time together........
