I had my first session with my new personal trainer, Nick, this week. It was okay. He has a lot to learn.

We started by just sitting down and getting to know each other a little. I told him my whiny-ness level was at a 7 tonight (on a scale 1 to 10).  He seemed surprised I start my sessions this way.  I find it’s good to give my trainer an idea what they are in for before I land up throwing a tantrum in the middle of the gym, flailing my arms and whining “this is HARD!!!!”.  They should plan accordingly.

I’ve mentioned my past push-up duel with MidnightYell on Fitocracy, as well as my current pull-up/chin-up duel with ImpishFae.  Well, the situation has grown.  You see, FairLillith commented that she wished someone would challenge HER to a pull-up duel, so she’d be encouraged to do pull-ups.  So, both ImpishFae and I challenged her – and now we have a sort of three-way pull-up/chin-up duel going on through April 9.  Honestly, it’s not really fair since ImpishFae was only logging her unassisted pull-ups… and I couldn’t even DO unassisted pull-ups, so I was using about 50 pounds of assistance.

I had another personal training session with Ron on Saturday.  That leaves two sessions remaining before he moves out of state.  Sadness.

Personal training with the awesome Ron tonight!  I did a little stretching while he finished up with his earlier client.  I’m starting a new stage of my “New Rules of Lifting: Supercharged” program and I like to go over my exercise choices with Ron, review form, etc.

Quest hoar

I had a personal training session with Ron Wednesday night.  Yes, he’s still made of muscles and awesome, even though he is leaving me.

I had an appointment with my chiropractor today. When Dr. Jen asked me how I was doing today, I told her that I’d hurt myself. I explained about how, sadly, it was NOT when I was lifting heavy stuff or doing push-ups or whatnot. I was simply doing some stretching (I can’t remember the specifics –  whether I was in yoga class or warming up before a workout or stretching after lifting or what).  Suddenly, the muscle in my upper right back, over my shoulder blade, went “NOOOO!!!!” and hurt. I told her that now that muscle hurt whenever I tried to do push-ups or other horizontal motions – or carried heavy things – or shoveled snow. So I’d stopped doing push-ups over a week ago. I was now behind in my 20,013 push-ups in 2013 challenge and frustrated and hoped she and/or the massage therapist could tell me when I’d be healed so I could get back to it.

My personal trainer is breaking up with me.  The sadness I feel can only be compared to the disappointment when that guy you’ve been really excited about starts the conversation with “I don’t think I feel the same way about you….” This is a sorrow that can only be handled one way… with chocolate and whining.  Thus, I sit here drinking hot cocoa and blogging.
