checking in!

Another crazy week almost over. Sorry I haven't been around but right now I feel like I have to take every single little job that comes my way and if my blog has to suffer, so be it.

I haven't been to the gym in 3 days and have lost 3 pounds. Now I'm not using this as an excuse not to go to the gym but really?? :)

In the midst of all the crazy, some good things have been happening. I have an offer from my friends personal trainer in Florida to virtually train me in trade for helping her with some press releases. She's a martial arts master and an Olympic Athlete among other things. She wants a week's food and activity log and then she'll set me up on a plan. I love the coach I have at the Y but he's way too busy to give me the personal attention I need at the moment. The new trainer is saying absolutely no weights in the beginning. All cardio. I know that there's so much disagreement out there about whether to lift or not but I'm going to see if this works for a while. She wants me to start the journal for her on a Monday so hopefully by the following week, I'll have her analysis. In the meantime, I'm getting my ass back to the gym I swear. I need to stay off the Lexapro.

The best news of all? I have a lunch date with Tammy on Sunday. This is the first time ever meeting a blog friend in person. She's done so well and has been such a huge support to me. I'm so excited! We will make sure to take a picture!

Anyway, back to the grind. Time for some lunch, a walk, and more work!

  3. Congrats on the 3 lbs down! You're doing something right! Sounds great to have the trainer and do a barter for services. I wish I had a service with which to barter! Maybe free shots to anyone who wants in return for ________________ something.

    I'll be thinking of you and Tammy having lunch, and can't wait for pictures and details! Have a great time.

  4. I find there's a catch-up effect that working out has with me and the scale. What I do today sometimes seems to show a week or so down the road. It can play fits with your psyche...

    Glad that you're keeping busy tho!

  12. Congratulations on the 3 pound loss! I knew your body would "catch up" with all the work you were doing.

    I'm going to make a plug for at least SOME strength training - you don't want to lose any of the muscle mass you already have, since it fuels your metabolism!!

    That being said, how cool about the trainer! :)

  17. HI! I just found your blog from Heather's post. Congrats on the award!

    Bartering is a wonderful thing. Working on fitness and nutrition and life balance can get really costly. What a great set up. I will be curious to hear what virtual training is like!

    Cheers,
