First session

I went to the trainer for my first session today.  It was uncomfortable, but (except for some bits involving my knees, which we worked to adjust) not actually painful. I was really impressed by the fact that I didn't leave hurting.

I said, "So, not like gym class.  You don't end up parched, exhausted, sore, and humiliated." He thought that was funny.

I ate a new thing, a "Hummus Chicken Power Salad," at Panera, which was tasty (though it would have benefitted from some extra-virgin olive oil).  I later made Salted Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Fudge, a Paleo-compliant recipe, which was very good yet not so "moreish" that you keep gobbling it.

I also bought a new office chair at an office furniture place that advertises, "It didn't fall off the back of a truck - it's just priced that way!"  It seems like a quality chair, it supports my back, it allows you to adjust everything I want to adjust, and it only cost me $219.  i've been saying literally for years that I needed to buy a proper office chair, and now I have.

I floated through the rest of the day in a pink cloud of pleased-with-myself. I felt very well.

That's brilliant!

I've been dealing with girly issues and fell off the exercise bandwagon beyond periodic 10 minute bursts of yoga at home daily. But I hope to get back on the wagon tomorrow. Its lack has been making me emotionally miserable and my body rather less healthy.

That sounds like a good idea (getting back on the wagon tomorrow.) Especially if not doing it is making you emotionally miserable!

I learned today that a conventional high carbohydrate lunch out will make me move like a logy walrus and need to take an afternoon nap. I took said nap and went for a walk just now in order to perk myself up for a bit of work I need to finish today.

PS: Just noticed the "girly issues" mention on re-read. PM me if you need to talk or anything.

This sounds like an excellent day :) Your description of working with the trainer as "not like gym class" makes me want to hire one.

Definitely not like gym class! I was amazed by the fact that I was never actually in pain or stumbling over my own feet.
