Lately, I have been feeling bad about being out of shape. In the past, if I gained some weight, I could just change my diet a little, and the extra weight would go away. This time, it’s staying, and physical exertion is even getting difficult.

Of course, exercise is the answer. I’ve got to get off my couch. But I’m not motivated. I can hardly even get myself to go for a walk.

I decided to look for a personal trainer. I had experienced a session back in 2015, and have thought about it ever since. It was so nice to just have someone tell me what to do and to not think about it.

I’ve actually been looking for a long time, and had mostly given up, but recently stumbled upon an ad for a trainer online. A few short email exchanges, and we were in business. Woo hoo! I’m exercising! Last Thursday was my first time. Yesterday was my second. I really like the trainer. She takes a thoughtful approach and pays attention to detail. Here’s hoping I can keep doing the sessions!

My shorts are all for teaching, so they’re kind of “dressy” and require a belt. Yesterday after school, I stopped at Ross and got some shorts with elastic in them.

Red shorts?  I never wore such bright colors before moving to Maui.

    Wow! Send some tips my way, if you would. I could stand to get in shape, too. Are you meeting at a gym or is she secretly running a furniture-moving business and you are her unwitting intern? “Lift with your legs!”

    Go, Brad!!

      She has a set-up in her garage. Only a five minute drive from me. It’s awesome. I will go Monday, Wednesday, and Friday before school. She’s willing to meet at 5:15am! So convenient! I love it!
