No no, this isn’t my last post… Rather, I was thinking about my last post…

Where basically I didn’t want to let the Evil Trainer down by not following his instructions about the elliptical trainer… The more I think about it, the more wrong it seems.

Wrong?  Yes, wrong – why am I worrying about disappointing him and NOT worrying about letting myself down?  Shouldn’t I be more important to me than that?

Maybe that’s part of my issue – maybe I’m NOT important to me.

I need to stop letting myself down…

Just got back from having my ass kicked by the Evil Trainer.  I shared with him my plan of doing 10-miles a week on the elliptical.  And he nixed it.  He’s worried that my knee won’t handle it and he doesn’t want me to have a setback because of it…

Okay, fair enough.

For the time being he wants me to start with 2-miles twice a week, and if my knee is feeling okay, then add another half mile – no more than 5-miles a week.  He also doesn’t want me swimming an hour, just 30-minutes for now.

He hasn’t steered me wrong before, so I’m going to follow his instructions…for once…he’ll be shocked…  :D

He’s also out of town for a week now, so I won’t see him again until a week from Friday, so other than Pilates, I’m on my own.  Time to buck up and get my butt to the gym so when he comes back from hunting, I can report success to him.    Sometimes I just have to mess with his mind by actually doing what he asks me to do…  >:)

So not ready to go back to work tomorrow…  :(

Well – I didn’t get all of the things done I wanted to do – BUT I did finally finish painting the wall around the back door.  It’s the only damn wall in the house I need a ladder to do – and of course I need the TALL ladder.  So it took longer than it should have because

  1. I HATE ladders
  2. I REALLY hate being on a tall ladder on a small landing at the top of the stairs
