Personal Tranier = New Shoes

Yesterday, I met with a personal trainer at our gym. With our membership you get four free sessions. So excited... to get started! Currently, I have been sticking to classes such as, Spinning, Body Pump, yoga, Mat Pilates, and I use the Elliptical quite a bit, too! I need guidance around the gym and help to use my time efficiently. The first session is an "information" session...set goals, weigh in, take measurements, heart rate, blood pressure, treadmill test, body fat count...you get the idea...not fun, when you see all those numbers at one time. My number one goal is to lose weight...10 lbs. would be good, but, 15lbs is ideal! Some of my other goals include, more energy and to strengthen my core because currently, my core is a pit. So after all the information is gathered and assessed, my trainer lays out a plan to lose 1lb a week. I can consume 1800 calories a day, which is more than I normally eat...but, I have to burn 2400 a day!!!!!!!!! How is that possible? Needless to say, I was a bit deflated when I left to gym. MBM picked me up by researching how many calories you can burn in daily activities, laundry, sewing, walking the dog, and other activity he wishes to be daily! So, on top of working out, it is possible, I think? I'll keep you posted! Last night, I met my college roommates here for shopping and dinner! I came home with these in black patent, these in chocolate, and these! I feel all better!!!!!!!

Beautiful shoes, you did great!

Now regarding the workouts, you can do it! If you do all the other things that you do - taking care of the girls and your sweet MBM, running a household, running a business - a little running around a gym is going to be nothing. Seriously, before you know it you will be a pro. Can't wait to hear about your progress. Good luck!
