Weight Watcher Wednesday

Well I gained a pound over the Thanksgiving holiday. Not too disappointing but I thought I did pretty good on the portion control, obviously not. This Thanksgiving holiday was tough on the food control - our fun started on Monday evening before the actual holiday having a turkey dinner with friends! Then it was dinner with friends who were in town....oh and the wine - lots of wine. I guess I should be pretty happy with one pound.

Today was also my first session with my personal trainer Cory. Thought I would spring that on you! Yes, both Kirk and I  have decided to go with a personal trainer because we are lazy, period. Well, since I am so out of shape he basically went pretty easy on me - but it didn't seem that way to me. At one point I really thought I was going to pass out with all that blood rushing to my brain and the lactic acid being released into my body. I will be going two days a week for about three months and also doing workouts that he puts together on the other days. When I am physically ready I will start doing Cory's Boot Camp workout two days a week - but I think that will be awhile.

I had been researching local trainers for about two months before Kirk and I decided to go and meet with Cory. First what we liked about Cory was his personality - you definitely need to be comfortable with someone that you are going to be seeing two days a week. Second was his knowledge and education background, he just isn't certified he actually went to college to study physiology. Third he actually has a small facility that is very close to our house, I can walk there.

Yoga and WW will continue to be apart of my routine. I am anxious to now have someone that will break everything down for me into little chunks - for example he wrote in my log book: "tomorrow, Thursday, drink 1/2 gallon of water and take a 25 minute bike ride" Okay I can do that! I see him again on Friday...
