New Trainer. New Focus. Fingers Crossed.

I met my new trainer tonight - she's lovely and she told me she's a bodybuilder who went to the World's last year. Total shock cause she's TINY. But really cool, because she knows what its like to give up the things you love.

I am feeling much more focused and ready to kick ass - which I'm really happy with. She told me a few of her success stories with other clients - shrinking someone from a size 28 to a size 12 in a year, which is great motivation.

And, we are setting weekly goals.

This week: (even though its already Tuesday)

Make my lunch twice during the week.
I am a complete shocker with this - I probably spend about $40 a week on food and snacks and chocolate and crap. So my first goal is a two time a week homemade lunch. I think I might have to leave my cashflow card at home on those two days so its not as tempting.

To workout three times this week.
Thursday - Body Attack on my own (as Trudz is now working to 5.30)
Friday - Body Pump
Sunday - Cardio

To start my food plan.
Properly this time.

So as much as I would like to eat all the chips, ginger crunch and drink all the coke thats hanging around this house, I'm going to resist temptation.

Wish me luck.

I hate taking my lunch just because I hate eating in the office. I'd much rather sit in a cafe and read a magazine, esp in winter.

Good luck with the trainer. She sounds good.

Good on you for setting these goals! I can't seem to stick to any for more than a day or two - so I've decided to just write everything down in a paper journal for now. I still blog, of course, but as far as keeping track of what I eat (and do, if anything) I found that using a pen and notebook for some reason is working out better.

I've tried to have "no dining out" weeks before - but that never works for me because I'm usually so enthralled in what I'm doing that I forget to cook. Maybe I too can start small and focus on 2 dinners a week. (I own my own business from home, so I eat here all day anyway, but dinners have been made by calling a number lately, and that's just not cool!)

And I swear, as soon as I can afford it (and the gym here re-opens) I'm going to get myself a trainer too... I think that's the only way I'm going to get my arse in gear! Can't break a trainer appointment! :)
