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?


  1. Lucy - I am sorry about your trainer no longer being at that facility. Don't you hate when you get use to someone and then they are not there? Especially in situations where support is part of the relationship. There is nothing worse than wanting to be happy for someone's decision but also wanting to be selfish & wishing they would just stay put!!! :o) I do hope you & Mr. Beefcake can come to terms with his lack of memory. Though maybe Andrea will be nice... Don't let it get you too discouraged. You are amazing - don't forget it... love ya!

  2. Hi Lucy - I'm glad that I found your blog! I'm sorry that you are struggling right now. I've had good and bad trainers over the past 5 years, and I know what you are going through. Just know that you can do it!! No matter who is training you - it's not about them, it's about you! You are doing all this work - they just make it more fun :)
    If you ever want to workout together, I'd love to! I need some accountability (especially during the summer!!) I'm thinking about you in this hard time. Amy (Steenwyk) :)
