Training recaps

I seem to have mostly ironed out my technical difficulties with my better health quest blog. The first training recap has been posted on MakingProgressGettingFitter.blog. If you have been reading/following along with my exercise adventures, you can now find all things diet, exercise, and health related there.

Training #99 – Nothing’s gonna stop us now

Thursday morning, J is back from his holiday vacation, and it was our last training session for 2016. Going forward and starting on Monday, these and other exercise-related posts will begin appearing in my new endeavor - MakingProgressGettingFitter.com - going live on Saturday, December 31. Today was our final review day, appropriate since he is…

The view from the gym floor

Since no training session and no recap today, I seem to have had some other blog pondering to share today, as this is post number 3 for today. No matter; it's Thursday and even with trainer J's absence, it is kind of weird and difficult for me not to write something about my exercise excursions. To…

While trainer J is away …

clients tend to work harder? Or not - gym was looking and feeling pretty empty this morning, as if the rest of the tribe has already checked out for the holiday. I was texting good travel wishes with J at 4:20 this morning, because he had an early-early flight and I was up anyway getting ready to…

Training #98 – You make my dreams come true

I began writing this post on Monday as usual, only did not get it completed on my typical schedule. A last-minute decision to join my daughter-in-law and work friend at a new (to us) yoga studio resulted in my gym bag getting stolen when a staff member left the building without locking the front door. I was so upset by this…

Training #97 – Walk this way

Thursday morning, training with J, and the doomsday vacation countdown clock continues. One more session before J leaves on his vacation, and then one more after he returns and before the end of the year. For someone who does not watch a lot numbers in  fitness-related things, I am acutely aware of how many sessions…

A rare money/finance post vent

This is a rare bitch-fest about the policies and marketing efforts of my big box gym. I find their behaviors and recent changes in fee schedules more upsetting for how it will impact other members more than the blow it delivers to my own budgetary bottom line. Unless you are in my realm and a…

Training #95 – Best day of my life

Thursday morning, training with J. And I confess - I have this doomsday clock countdown going on in my head realizing that his well-deserved holiday break is 2 weeks away and we are down to 4 sessions remaining in 2016. Okay, so maybe doomsday clock is a bit (okay, maybe way over-the-top) melodramatic, but I…

Training #94 – Peaceful easy feeling

Monday morning, training with J. It was shuffled review day, where he took an existing List and rearranged it and added and/or subtracted exercises to make something new. Since we are now in the final month of 2016, J will be on vacation for a Monday and Thursday this month for the holiday, we will…
