Musings for February 22
Monday, February 22, 2021
I haven't done a blog entry in awhile because they were getting to be repetitious and weren't really helping me much. Initially they helped me to get into a routine of logging food, water, carbs and in doing what I identified as my "daily eleven". I am here to report that despite not blogging about it, I have been doing all of the above. Well, except for logging all food. I got away from that the last few weeks due to stress and being overwhelmed. But I need to go back to logging all food. When I don't, it's a bit easier to give into false feelings of "hunger" but when I log my food, I can prove to myself that I really did have enough and to stop already!
On Saturday I started with a new personal trainer. She works during the week as a PT assistant. Then on weekends they allow her to use their facility and equipment for personal training. After nine months of actual PT I am transitioning back into the "real world" of exercise. I was a bit nervous about this. In the past, I have gone from PT to personal trainers at the Y and immediately got injured. But this personal trainer is a good fit because of her work in the PT office.
So when I met with the personal trainer I liked her even more than I thought that I would! She's a pilates person and while pilates scares me, she was quite gentle. She reminded me of what I imagine a ballet teacher might be like: she focused on small moves done with precision. She's really big on a strong core and since my core is a wet noodle that's a good thing for me to focus on.
