plans and adjustments

Well, I followed through and met with a trainer this afternoon!
That’s the good news. The young man was top-notch and not muscle-bound and into his body. I could tell from talking with him that he was genuinely interested in helping people meet their goals. After a 2 hour session filled with questionnaires, assessments of strength, flexibility and stamina, I was given my results. That’s where the not so good news begins! I won’t tell you the results, but I can assure you that I won’t be winning a triathlon any time soon! But, it is good for a person to know exactly where they are so they can’t fool themselves any longer! That would be where I am about now!

The bad news? Well, the bad news is that a personal trainer is not going to be a part of my plan, at least for now. Meeting with him was a very educational experience. I benefited from going. Now at least I know what having a personal trainer is all about and someday that will be back in my plan! At least I can dream and strategize.

More good news? Perspective is everything! I now appreciate my gym membership all the more and will work harder getting my toosh there at least 3 times a week!

It’s time to adjust and adapt. No personal trainer? Then I need to call my friends who go to the same gym and see when they go. I’ll just have to “make an appointment” with them.  Then instead of being accountable to a trainer, I’ll be accountable to them. That’s a bit more of a challenge – trying to synchronize schedules – but it’s not impossible.  My friends will encourage me to show up. I can still succeed. I just have to be flexible, like Gumby and Pokey.

So, as in all of life, one must take stock, and readjust. That’s a good thing. It’s a necessary thing.

It’s been a productive and informative day and I’ve taken one more step in the right direction.

How about you? How are you coming with your plans? Any adjustments needing to be made?
