I am in love with my gym!

Went to the gym last night. I didn’t do much on my own working out. Coworker & myself met with the trainer, she showed us around the gym some more, explained how to use some of the equipment, explained some small things we need to do at work to help with posture. I really think I’m going to get a lot out of this gym.

The trainer told us about hiring her to help us set up exercise routines & the like. Said we can hire her together for $70/hour (so $35 each) or separate for $50/hour. I think I’m going to wait a little longer before I hire her. I need to get back into the gym routine. Back into going & enjoying it again. Then I’ll hire her so I can have her push me even more. Right now I want to push myself, but I know the day will come when I need someone to push me. I heard through the grapevine that they sometimes will “discount” the trainers & you can purchase packages at a reduced rate, I may wait & look into that.

I love that the coworker joined with me. She’ll also help push me to go & to stay on plan. Having someone I see 5 days a week & spend so much time with doing this journey also is a huge help to me.

On a side note – I’m so totally going to be “that girl” at the gym tonight. I packed my gym clothes. 2 layering tank tops (I don’t know why I always wear 2), capris, & my sports bra. I get all the way to the office this morning & realize that my tank tops are racer-back & my sports bra is very much not. Since when are sports bras not racer-back??

Today is supposed to be a higher calorie day to help zig-zag my calories. But I seriously don’t know what else I want to eat today. This menu puts me at 1754 calories for the day. According to the chart I found online I should have 200 more calories today (I’m having today as the 1954 calories & Saturday as the 2132 calorie day). But seriously. 200 more calories! I don’t know what I want to eat for that. This menu is plenty of food, even allows for a glass of wine as a splurge. I don’t want to just add calories in to add them in. And I’m also worried about eating too many calories. This seems like a lot to me in order to lose weight. I don’t want to gain weight.
