Fat Tuesday Volume XII

A Training Update

This is my 5th week working with my personal trainer, but… I haven’t had three sessions a week for each of the previous four weeks. I missed a session due to illness, and I missed two while in Florida. So, I’ve had ten sessions so far including yesterday’s.

I think it’s going really well. I like my trainer, Lisa. I’m feeling better and stronger. I could really tell when I got back from Florida that I had missed. As far as results go, they are not stunning. I have seen a slight decrease in my measurements and a pretty slow and steady decrease in my body fat percentage. But the big weight loss still eludes me. I’m holding steady at six pounds lost since I began this twelve weeks ago.

I realize that this is due to me not being strict enough with myself on the food. So, I am contemplating doing something like weight watchers. But, the idea of attending meetings is enough to make me hide in a dark closet for days. Has anyone had any success using their online program? Or maybe another online program that tracks your food intake? I really have done very little recent research on this topic, but I’m sure when I talk to friends and start searching online, I will be overwhelmed with information.

Enough about me, me, me! How is diet and exercise going for you?

  1. Oh boy was that on the resolution list? Um….yup, so apparently it isn’t going so well!


  2. I know how you feel. I’ve been going to Yogalates for 8 wks. I’ve gone 3 times a week all but 2 of those weeks. I’ve lost 6 lbs. A couple of those was before I started Yogalates. I contribute it to cutting back on Dr. Pepper. I definitely haven’t been as strict with myself with food as apparently I need to be. Good luck!


    • Traci, thanks for the solidarity. Keep it up. I know we will see bigger results eventually. You might want to do the measuring thing. It was kind of nice to see that my measurements have gone down a bit.


  3. Exercise??? NOT GOING! I wish I was having time for that ( I know I have to make time for it!), but I hope to do it after my both kids are at school. Hopefully!

    Have a wonderful day, sweetie!
