Reagan and I have been trying to fill our days and it seems like some very groovy things are happening.
By some miracle I was chosen to be physically trained pro-bono by a local Trainer. He was looking for two people to train and I was chosen which is a great thing! I really needed this. I have been still and as result I have gained a tremendous amount of weight in 18 months. Crazy! Well, I hope to change everything about my life one painful crunch, push-up, weight lifting, squat at a time! I didn't realize how damaging my being still was until I started working out. I need to get up and get going. So....now my goal is to find a balance between painting, raising Reagan and getting up and moving. This will be one hell of a journey. I need support because I can easily get in my head and get lost.Update: The personal trainer decided not to train me pro-bono due to my lack of commitment(in his words) and that he expected something different. I feel it was because he took on more than he could handle and expected me to lose more weight or to yield better results than what I could give him. I gave it my all, I did and managed to lose 10 pounds in 8 weeks. I will continue working out. I will have to bite my tongue and not share my experience in detail because I was asked not to. Click: Choosing a GOOD personal trainer. Buyer beware! My trainer was pro-bono and I was so excited and ready to change my life while helping him build business and whatever he needed me to do in exchange....but seriously if I were paying....I feel I would have been listened to better with questions and concerns and especially my limitations. When having a personal trainer it is important that they listen and respect you as a client and a person. I would have moved on two weeks in if I had hired him to do the job because our personalities clashed. Just because somebody knows how to exercise and eat doesn't make them qualified. I am just saying. We sometimes tend to accept less than acceptable behavior or work because of obligation or lowered standards but we don't have to! We live and we learn!
Reagan is going to be doing 3 weeks of summer day camp. This is an awesome gift because the economy has not afforded us much financial room for such luxuries....Summer camp and physical Training. Thank God for such lovely gifts.
Gods love has been amazing.
I am hoping to start painting soon. Waiting for the humidity to let up. Hoping Next Monday I can begin again.
Well, That is what is going on right now.
I am so hoping my creative side will re-emerge. It should very soon...I have a few pieces I am really getting in the mood to do!
