I had my second appointment with my personal trainer tonight.

The first appointment was not very exciting. It was just a meet and greet. We talked about my goals, my habits and of course, took those dreaded measurements (I updated my weight loss ticker to reflect my weight on the scale at the gym.) Eck. I am in sad shape. Seriously. How did I let myself get this bad?  But.....I am owning it and moving forward to make the changes.

I have been doing zumba about 2-3 times a week. Not as much as I would like to be doing, but it is all that I can squeeze in time wise for now.

I have never worked with a personal trainer before. I did not realize that is about more then them being in your face and screaming at you to work harder.

She is going to work with me on improving my nutrition. She is going to help tailor my nutrition to my lifestyle and what i like to eat. It is not going to be a one-size fits all program.

She started me on some supplements (calcium and Omega-3.) I never realized that supplementation is the next most important thing, after food intake, that you can do to get your body healthy.

I think this is actually one of the first times that I have ever been excited about trying to make some healthy changes. I really am feeling confident that I can do it this time. I feel like God is putting all the pieces in place for me to finally take care of myself.

Awesome, Missy! How cool to have a personal trainer. I'm sitting here thinking, I need to do this! I just started dieting yesterday, and I'm going to walk everyday too. Now, even when I sit down to watch TV I make sure to do some stretches and exercises, so I'm never just sitting doing nothing. Like I am right now. Heheh...
