Dinner: small turkey sandwich, 2 slices pizza

Workout: 15 minutes on the elliptical, 30 minutes on the treadmill (walking), 2 chest exercises

I think I ate fairly decent over the weekend. A lot less than I have eaten in the past. With the exception of some M&Ms that I went crazy with while preparing my nephew and niece's Easter baskets, I didn't do too bad with the sweets. On Easter day, the only candy I ate was a handful of jelly beans. I think that deserves a pat on the back.

I have now completed 3 weeks of consistent exercise. What's my record? I can't remember at the moment so I'll have to go back and check. I think it's 4 weeks so I still have a bit to go before I can bring out the champagne and celebrate. I am still celebrating though. I feel great and can tell that the workouts are working.

The boyfriend and I joined a gym. Yes, the boyfriend tricksed me! But I think it is for the best. Can't you tell? I did an extra 15 minutes of workout at the gym. I never would have done that at home. Plus, this gym is so pretty! The machines are all shiny and they just call out to you. Except for the stair climber...that one is scary. I do believe the gym will become my second home.

Tonight, the boyfriend and I have a complimentary session with a personal trainer. I am so scared. Personal trainers are so intimidating. They really do scare me. But since this will probably be the only session (since PTs cost way too much), I need to get as much as I can out of him. I'm hoping things go good tonight.

I think some very interesting things are coming my way!


  1. I work out with a trainer once a week with my mom. She treats me and it is an amazing gift and so fun to share the workouts with her. I have learned a lot from trainers over the years. I hope you have a great experience with your tonight!

    I miss my gym. I have not been in several weeks since I injured my shoulder. I like to take group classes; I will work out much harder there than at home.

    Sounds like you are really doing will with the workouts:)

  2. wt- wow, that's a great gift from your mom. I didn't like it to much, but maybe I will after an actual workout with a trainer. But even though, I can't really afford one right now. =( And yes, the gym does make me workout harder than I have been at home, too. the gym has got to be one of the greatest inventions EVAR!!
