Rod the Trainer

I am writing this from my mobile phone. Not sure how it will look, but we'll see.

Right before Christmas a friend gave me a one-year free membership to a local gym. She won it in a charity event and didn't want it. I got the membership right before New Years and never went back. My husband thought it would be best if I start with a trainer to learn how to do the machines and such and I finally made an appointment with one and start today after work.

His name is Rod and he is a great motivator. He says he is going to kick my ass and that is exactly what I need. He already has me started on the protein shakes and has been helping with nutrition tips. I'm really excited. I may actually lose some weight finally.

I'm finally feeling better from the cold crud. The cough won't seem to go away, but other than that I'm a lot better.

I STILL have my monthly!! It won't go away and has been quite painful. I'm not sure if I'll use Ceasonal again. If it keeps going on I really need to see a doc but don't want to take the time off work, so I hope it just stops on its own soon.

I was late to work yesterday and still feel bad about it. I need to yank my butt out of bed, but I recently realized that if I could do anything in the world, I would just want to lay in bed and sleep for the rest of my life.

I always knew that I was a loser and this really proves it.

You're not a loser. I think we all feel that way from time to time. Good luck with the gym. I'd do the same thing myself if I wasn't so darn self-conscious.

YOU ARE NOT A LOSER! The rest of this post proves that. You're depressed but you have gone to the gym and are excited about having your butt kicked - and you are continuing to make it into work. Those are victories!

no losers on my blog list! Hey once you start that exercise and do it on a regular basis, you are going to feel soooooo much better. Exercise is good for the ole brain, it really is. And if you lose a few pounds GREAT. You rock lady.

You aren't a loser. I felt that way this morning. it was my brain's way of rebelling against the time change which sucks ass bananas by the way. quit being so hard on yourself. What's it helping? Nothing.

Do one really nice self gratifying thing for yourself every day. No matter how small. One completely self indulgent thing, that you don't have to share with anyone, or tell anyone about.

Be nice to you, now.

Catherine, you are not a loser. I can think of far worse things than being late for work that constitute being a loser.

Losers don't even know they are losers anyway. That is a title others bestow upon them.
