so, about a week ago, mj went to the gym for a personal fitness assessment and i crashed in on it. and despite my not so amazing experience with a personal trainer before, this guy had me rethinking the idea. unfortunately, it's just not in the budget, but i guess he likes to work pro-bono when he's not recruiting/managing the rest of the staff because he pretty much handed my ass back to me in twenty minutes this morning.
and i get to do it again tomorrow. i mean who am i to say no to an attractive trainer who wants to help me for free? (and by free i mean for no dollars outside of what i already pay to go to the gym. which is totally worth it, btw. i love my gym.) i told him i had no problem taking advantage of him. [note: no, he's not single so i'm really just using him for his brain. also, i think his gf is a body builder and i'm sure she could kill me.]
dude also thinks i'm a boozer. i'm such a homebody, so that's crazy. one wrist band and you're scarred for life.
all this to say, i have to start cooking & eating healthy because i almost passed out on him this morning. a ZONE bar is delicious, but not enough for breakfast. evidently neither is a whole wheat waffle & peanut butter. tomorrow i have to eat 4 egg whites and a 1/2 cup of oatmeal. i'm sort of small... WHERE AM I GOING TO PUT ALL THAT FOOD? oy vey.
so today, i went to whole foods and stocked my kitchen with all sorts of things a kitchen needs.
tomorrow i bake (espresso chocolate chip cookies) & make butternut squash pasta w. blue cheese & spinach. i also have a date with some brussel sprouts & asparagus this week.
