Yesterday I got to meet and workout with my new trainer. My regular trainer is getting ready to have twins, so we wanted to do the transition before the babies came ~ so yesterday was the big switch! In all these months, I did not realize that I was pretty fearful of this change. My current trainer punishes me (in a good way) every workout, so I'm kind of used to being pushed to my limit, but I realized yesterday, that this change has really been weighing heavy on me. I just did not want to try anybody new and fail. Believe me, I was looking for all kinds of excuses not to go and I was even thinking that maybe I really didn't need a trainer after all.
But I did not run away from this new challenge. I decided to face my fears and go. So glad I did. Fortunately I know my new trainer as she is my nutritionist as well. How cool is that. Almost like a 2 for 1! Anyway, we had a great session and I was really pleased that I could do everything she asked me to do....even with ease. I told her that we can even bump things up a bit and she was quite pleased!
After we were done and stretching out, she said, "You know....I don't see a lot of people, your age (I'm 50) as fit as you....you are really strong!!"
HOW COOL IS THAT!!!!!
I am really really excited to be working with her. I think she will challenge me in a different way than my trainer. I think the shake up for my body is a good good thing. So excited!!!
She is really excited to help me and said that she can totally see me at the fitness level I want for myself.
How about you...are you facing your fears?
