I really must teach Izzy how to pose better. Seriously, she must think she's Britney Spears dog. Still, she wanted to be in the pic and I can't deny her.
Last day to suggest a song for the new playlist. Can't wait to groove to your favorite tunes! Winners will be announced tomorrow.
Let's talk about dress days. If you see me in a dress, that means I didn't have a lot of time or I didn't want to think about getting dressed. Some people wear jeans and a t-shirts when they rush to get ready, I throw on a dress. In one fell swoop, you have an instant outfit and you're still dressed professionally. Of course I had to throw on these lacy shoes. They also went to the shoe hospital recently. The strap on the back stretched out and I had to have them cut and re sewn. They are still so fab!
Biggest Loser was on last night. I just love that show. Does anyone watch it? It's only the 2ND episode for the season and I am already crying. I am just amazed at what they can do in a matter of months. I told my trainer, Monica, that I want to look like the winner from last season. She and Kae from Season 4 are true inspirations. Of course I won't do it in 4 months, but I am on my way.
I have an awesome trainer! I know people think personal trainers are too expensive, but for me, it has been worth every penny. I used to be so intimidated by the gym. All those weights, machines, and equipment can be overwhelming when you don't really know what your doing. When I tried to do the gym on my own, I stuck to the cardio machines and the aerobic classes because those were the things I was familiar with. I'd lose a little weight, but never really stuck with doing it for more than a few months mostly because I got bored doing the same thing and I didn't see results fast enough. I also felt like a phony trying to fit in a place of sweaty, skinny, fit people. I had so many excuses to not go. When I joined 24 Hour Fitness, my new membership came with 5 personal trainer sessions. That's when I met Monica. She has really guided me, pushed me, and taught me a lot. She even taught me how to run on a treadmill (seriously I never thought that would happen). I've also gotten to know a lot of the staff. They keep up with me and always encourage me to keep going. I never knew a gym could be like this. I am no longer intimidated. I no longer feel like I don't fit in the gym. It's so liberating!
Thank you Monica for pushing me when I needed it. Thank you for your patience. Thank you for helping me change my life. I always look forward to the sessions no matter how much you kick my butt!
