I'm Still Standing

Getting old sucks. I can remember a time when my body would move the way I wanted it to move. I used to think I could run forever. Now it seems I have a hard time just getting out of bed. It's been especially hard having a personal trainer. Our personal trainer has been working my friend and me like nobody's business. 

The first week I was cursing her as I felt I couldn't even raise my arms a couple of days after our first work-out. I'm sure that was her way to keep me from eating since I couldn't even raise my arms to feed myself without excruciating pain. Things have gotten better. Now I can at least can jog for a little while instead of losing my breath while trying to go up the hill. I also seem to be able to handle the weight lifting a little bit easier. I still have a hard time with all the reps. I'm sure that this will get better as time goes on.

My trainer was saying that she is going to try to push me more. She feels that I can do a lot more than I am currently doing, and she feels that I am capable of so much more. I think that's part of it. I think you really need to see how far you can push yourself and see that you can do more than you think you can.

It still sucks getting out of bed in the morning though.

Fruits and Veggies

Week two of the regimen continues... I feel a little like Sofie looks...
Although, I have to admit that I did better today. I was able to actually jog for a bit, and I didn't feel like I was having a coronary going up the hill. Afterward I was so motivated by the endorphins, or crazy from the lack of blood supply to my brain, that we went for a Costco run and bought a lot of fruits and veggies... Hoping to keep the energy, and enthusiasm, up for the next week...!
