The trainer sent me an email this morning to check in and see if we are still on for Friday or not.
I opened up my bank account (as I do everyday now that I'm being strict with the budget) and didn't like what I was seeing. We've been reining things in so things should be on the way of getting better but at the same time we'll be adding expenses for the kids activities back into the budget. So, I had to make a tough decision and ultimately chose to not workout with him at this time. I know my health is priceless but adding the stress of worrying where our next meal is going to come from will just do more harm than good. So, for now I'm working on my own. Not happy about it, but it's what is best for my sanity and for the family.
In the meantime, I'm going to start looking for part time work.
And what a turn of events! As I was writing this, I noticed a new mail message....it's from the trainer! He wants to work out a more comfortable deal with me. I teared up while reading the message. He spoke with the owner and they would like to do something a bit different with me; he will train with me for 30 minutes and then I will have access to the cardio machines for 30 minutes. He said to come in on Friday to check it out and the workout would be "on him". He really wants me to have my happy ending. How can I say no to that!
And I'm at the end of my official Day one.
I didn't follow yesterday's plan as much as I would have liked, but I didn't stray too far off the path either. My calories are dead on andI managed to get most of my fruits and veggies in.
Now, just need to focus on getting more water through the system! Ack! I have such a hard time sucking back the water. Not sure why, but I do.
On to Day Two.
