A Little Bit Of This, A Little Bit Of That....

Well, the comments were getting a little out of hand on my last post, so I figured I better write something new if I wanted to keep my sanity...I did make it to the gym today and got all weighed and measured up. Can you believe that I'm actually 5 foot one inch and a half! And all this time, I've been telling people that I'm 5 foot and just one inch--today is a happy day for me! They also put these little electrodes on my right foot and hand and I was able to get a print out of some weird facts like how much water I had in my body today. My trainer is very french, and the way she spoke reminded me of a certain youth sponsor named Esther....People have told me that she works her clients very hard, but since I've never worked out in a gym before, she said she'd go a little softer on me for the first 3 months. I think that I'll soon start dreading month number 4....I have spent the week recovering from dog-sitting for a friend earlier this week. Chevy is still a puppy, so I must forgive him for many things--especially tiring me out. In the course of 2 days, he managed to pee numerous times on the floor, on the stairs, in front of the door, and on me; chew through 2 cardboard boxes, chew a new roll of toilet paper, chew a pair of rubber gloves, chew a magazine, dig up some sod beside the house, dig up some garbage from under the snow, and knock over a lamp. He also figured out how to hold the leash in his mouth so it looked like he was walking ME. How embarrassing... I will probably be looking after him on a regular basis, which I'm actually looking forward to....although that does sound strange after all I just wrote. But it's so worth it when he comes and sits beside me and tries to cuddle on my lap. Sidenote: Chevy is a golden retriever/black lab cross, so imagine him trying to cuddle with all 5 feet 1 and a half inches of me in 6 months!

You have a trainer! I want one, I just keep getting fatter and fatter, but with my job I eat at bad times, I'm always tired and like to eat only bad food. Dr. phil ( I mean Kelly) I need help! How did you get the will power to do all of this?

No will power at all--just a lot of convincing from my friends! The fact that a personal trainer is included in my membership fee was a big motivator--I need someone who will hassle me if I slack off!

Sandi, of course I'm there to get in shape! I'm not into those body builder types--they're WAY too into themselves! Glad to see you updated your blog!
