To my health
Yesterday I met with my soon to be personal trainer after work. I told her my health story and she told me her philosophy of health training. She's been doing this for over 20 years and specializes in working with people like me and has a nursing background along with numerous personal training and dietitian affiliations. We are going to meet a few times and set up a program for myself and then meet monthly after that (mostly cuz of $$, and my lack of funds to meet with her too often). It will be good to have someone with a medical background helping me get active again and keep an eye on my progress. She is determined that I not do too much and make myself sick or prone to illness by pushing myself to try and get back to my old normal too fast and I agree. Because she trains for functional strength (yay!) and can work with the equipment I have at home to build me a program to slowly rebuild my strength I know this will be a good fit for me. I don't have any trouble doing the workouts...it's knowing when to stop or how to move forward that's the problem. This is very exciting. I got a very good vibe off of her and I am looking forward to our first workout next week!
