When I told my husband that I was going to work with a personal trainer he asked me why I would do that. He said that I was a three sport athlete in college, I was a Physical Education and Health teacher, I coached athletics and I had a Master's degree in Holistic Health Studies from Saint Catherine University. My response was: "And how is that working for me?" He shrugged his shoulders and walked away. I had the knowledge; I needed a strategy. I needed something or someone who would get me up and to the gym.
Today Courtney informed me that she would be on vacation for two weeks. She said that she really wanted me to to continue a tough regimen while she was gone. I said that would probably not happen. She said that she would email me work outs. I said I am sure it won't happen. She looked very disappointed because she has seen the changes that have occurred. ( My chiropractor, Dr Heidi Salonek, the other day even said: " My goodness you are sculpting your body!)
I usually walk a mile or so after my work out with Courtney and I began to think about what tactic I could use to get myself working out when she was gone. Then it came to me. I know Melinda Myers and could work out with her. I have those days set up already.
It is not always easy to come up with a strategy, if you get stuck ask someone for ideas. I was even going to post on facebook that I wanted someone to work out with. I still may do that too. I am looking to do exercise one or two more days a week.
So what strategy are you going to use today to make yourself healthier?
