My thoughts tonight...11/29/10

I hit the gym this morning & met up w/my awesome trainer.  I was spanked pretty hard!  I love my trainer!  Yes ladies, he is rather easy on the eyes, but that is not why I love my trainer.  I love him because he doesn't let me get away w/anything.  He isn't brutual, but he is tough.  He pushes me to want to give it my all.  I've seen other trainers at the gym who are way too easily pushed over by their clients.  My trainer doesn't care if I don't like sit ups.  I still have to do them.  And I've learned early on that complaining only means I have to do more of them!  The only thing I can challenge is the weight on things.  If I don't look like I'm handling it, he'll ask.  If it's too much, we agree to lower it...but the activity still has to be done.  And you know what...that is just fine w/me!  I love it!  I love Paul because I see the changes in my body.  I see the muscles coming to life.  I see the fat melting off of my body.  I see how my posture has improved.  My self-esteem has increased.  My energy level is higher than ever.  And overall, I just feel better. 
So I cheated over the Thanksgiving holiday which is why I ended up at the gym early today.  I had to rock a great workout to try to undo some of my overindulgent behavior.  And yes, I did tell Paul how bad I was.  He let it be known that I shouldn't be hard on myself, but rather I should just hit the gym a little more...which I will this week.

While resting after my workout, I actually started thinking about this blog.  I started thinking of more ideas to add to the list.  Here are a few things I thought up...

- buy 40 different pairs of socks
- get a make over
- get 40 people to join me for a picnic in a park
- go whale watching
- eat a papaya...I've never had one
- cook a Thanksgiving dinner
- sing karaoke w/some friends
- visit the gravesite of Billie Burke, Glenda from 'The Wizard of Oz' in Vallhalla, NY
- learn sign language
- paint my bedroom
- clean out the living room closet

I will add them to the list.

Hope everyone is well!

Happy Blogging!


  1. It's great you get so much out of the gym. I have never signed up and I got a bit (very) slack with exercise at home. But at least I live on the fifth floor, no lift. I like your list.

  2. Thanks Breugels! I've been enjoying going to the gym. I am feeling so much better when I go more...lately I've been sick, so I haven't been there as much, but now that I am better I am going to make more trips to the gym.

    Raul, decisions about what? The 40 things? If that's your question, then not completely. I am still looking for suggestions. I want to have a completed list by April being I am starting the 40 weeks May 1, 2011.

  3. No, Traci..I was wondering if you made your decision to invest in Gold or real Estate this year.
    ,,,but speaking about the Blog's topic..I have a few things to suggest. Where should I put them? In this box?

  4. Post it here Raul. And feel free to suggest a few things.
