another day...

Okay... for those of you who might check my blog occasionally, I did just add the one from June 9 today... it's been hard to post that one.

Am I still working out? Yes, I've been working out with Steve. He is a really good workout and I believe my body is still changing.... HOWEVER.... Steve is not for me. When I first joined Fitness Together, I explained that I needed someone to care about me and my health... I wanted to "buy a Bob" (you know, like from Biggest Loser). Well.... Steve is no Bob. Okay... I go to work out FIVE times a week. I have worked out with him TEN times now... are you ready for this? The man can't remember my name... YET! He never remembers what we did the day before, he always acts like it's the first time we've worked together. ARGH! It's driving me CRAZY! And.... he's one of those beefed-up guys... I have no doubt (mostly due to his short-term memory loss) that there have been steroids in his past. He's always got some ailment that we have to talk about - his back, his muscles, his knees... um... we're here for ME!!! AND he tells me every other day about his 30 second spotlight on ESPN one time.... who cares???

Do I want to go workout? Not really. I'm hoping my attitude has something to do with the heat and having my butt kicked by this class I've been in for the past 2 weeks. Now that the class is over, I'm going to switch to afternoon workouts... I think I get to train with a girl named Andrea. She's supposed to be good... I just like it when they act like they know me and act like they care about me.... that is, after all, what I signed up for in the first place. Is that too much to ask for?

My little work-out world was rocked yesterday. I am no longer working out with Rodney. He is leaving Fitness Together, and I'm trying desperately to be happy for him. I'm much better today than I was yesterday... and tomorrow will be even better! I have 48 sessions left in my contract, so I'm staying put. I'm hoping to find a trainer that suits my needs... if not, I'll put in my 48 sessions and be done. I know I have to give these other trainers a chance... but arghhhhh... Rodney and I worked so well together. I know that he put a lot of prayer behind his decision, so I can't question it! (anymore)

OH MY WORD! I have been on cloud nine all afternoon! I got to do my evaluation today, and I lost 19.4 pounds... 16. 2 of that was nothing but FAT! 9.13 additional inches are GONE! Since I started 14 weeks ago, I have lost 41 pounds (33.8 of those pounds were fat) and I've lost 25.51 inches from my neck to my calves!! UNBELIEVABLE!! It has been over 7 years since I've weighed under 200, and I am there... just barely.... but I'm there and I'm NEVER going back!!

I just cannot tell you how excited I am! I feel amazing! I can't tell you what it means to me to have all the encouraging words. This has been a very hard road and thanks to my Jesus, an amazingly supportive husband and some awesome friends, I am making it down that road... thank you my friends and my sweet hubby! Of course I have to thank Rodney Golden for being my rock! He keeps me focused, he is nothing but encouraging, and he kicks my butt when I need him to. Thank you Rodney... you are SO much better than Bob (Biggest Loser)!!

Let me take this moment to encourage all of you to get healthy. It's not about losing pounds, it's about getting healthy... eating right and exercising EVERY DAY so that you will be around a lot longer!!! It doesn't take long to make it a habit. Call me and we'll walk!
