Back in training – almost!

Not an excuse - it bloody hurts!

Having enrolled the help of personal trainer Mitch – I have to admit to not getting off to the best of starts! Partially my fault, partially plain old bad luck.

Having met Mitch initially about a month ago he set me a couple of relatively simple tasks, and asked me to keep a food diary. I met him again last week to be greeted by a smile as he handed me the food diary I’d sent him. He explained that he had marked the food diary with a note – containing words to the effect of “Normally I highlight the bad things my clients eat – in this case – to save time – I’ve marked yours with the good stuff”!

I have been a good with the walking though in the meantime, and have come to the conclusion that I am at least doing more mileage on foot than I have been by car since our firsts meeting. The dogs are loving it of course.

The upside of the food diary comment being that it shouldn’t be hard to impress  with at least some improvement by our next meeting. Despite the difficulties of my current lifestyle and movements, I can at least squeeze in a couple of salads for next time! 🙂

Since we first met, Mitch had drawn me up a personalized training program to complete at least three times a week. Life is a little complicated at the moment as I had explained to him – the design of the program totally took this on-board. Looks a bit daunting and a lot of hard work – but necessary given my future plans!

I have to admit to not getting off to the greatest of starts. I’m seriously willing, but have managed to hurt my hand since we met so can’t actually make a start on the program. I’m guessing it will be a week or two before I can – but I’m doing my best to clock up the miles on foot, do anything that doesn’t involve my hand, and improve my diet.

I’m visiting friends at the moment so its not always easy to control your diet – I did however have salad with my burger from the BBQ when I arrived! It’s a start…..

I’ve been promised a beasting next time I see him – looking forward to that – I think! 🙂
