"Wake up and smell the muscles!"

I finally did it. I DID IT!! I met with a personal trainer this morning and his first words weren't, "This is Hans and Franz, and we are going to pump *clap* you up!" Which I felt was a good sign. When you are on a mission to lose 230lbs,  you have to really take steps to make that mission stay on track.

I honestly feel I have a pretty good grasp of my food choices. I'm doing well. I try to minimize temptations and for the most part my day to day feels under control. That isn't to say I don't have days that have more temptation or more struggle than others, but it's time to kick this up a notch and give myself another boost.

At the first of the year I made the goal that I would work with a personal trainer. My thought was I would just get the initial consultation, learn what I need to do on a few weight machines and then take care of the rest myself. However, I've come to realize that I need more than that. I need that appointment. I need to go to the gym and work out with a professional. I need him to push me and I need him to keep me in line.

So, I'm doing it. I met with "my trainer" today and we are set to go. Tuesday I start training.

I can't believe how much this is exciting me. I honestly can't wait to feel that soreness in my muscles, reinforcing and reminding me that I'm doing something so beneficial for myself. I can't wait to sweat and feel that complete feeling of exhaustion. Most of all, I can't wait to start seeing the results of these efforts.

Do you work out with a personal trainer or did you at one time? What was your experience?

  1. Wow, I'm beyond excited for you. This will totally take you to the next level! I have always wanted to work with a personal trainer; however, been to afraid to pull the trigger! I commend you girl! You will definitely get to the next level with a trainer, he will push you to the max! It will be painful, but just keep your goals in your mind. There will be days you want to say "I can't" but the truth is, you can!
