What Did I Get Myself Into?
I wrote my post When You Are Discouraged About Your Health about a week before I started writing this one. Yesterday while I was in our rental office, I found out that we still had a fitness instructor on sight who offered free classes at multiple times. I thought this could be a great fit for me. I really missed the idea of working out with people even though I planned on just making due as far as being consistent with working out at home alone is concerned. Hubby said we could work out on his days off, but I knew that fluctuated so I didn’t want to solely rely on that.
So I let hubby know I wanted to go to the class once he was home from work. I’m not sure why but when I reminded him today on his way home, suddenly he says, “no, you don’t have to do that. I will work you out.” I was like huh? Seriously? I’m not sure if I told you all this before, but my husband did personal training for years. He has gotten his certification in the past but he never renewed it after that so the man knows what he is talking about when it comes to fitness, staying in shape and losing weight. I guess the issue has been with him needing to work sooo many hours. He has struggled with finding the time to consistently go to the gym. He goes at all different times and that is always without me and JR. We have 2 gyms in our complex that he can use. So with his schedule being so hectic, I never thought to ask him to work out with me right in our house.
As my post title states What Did I Get Myself Into? It is what I was thinking during our first session. We worked on everything and he wants to help me increase my upper body strength because let’s just say its close to zero. He said having better upper body strength is the only way to benefit from a workout. I have a long way to go, friends. I was quite the dancer once upon a time, but that was mostly core and lower body strength. Figures. I’ve learned a bit about fitness from him and from doing some research when I used to sell health products on my old health blog, but this is just amazing! Don’t get me wrong. I’m excited about having my hubby as a personal trainer. Can you imagine having a hot trainer as a married woman that you can actually hit on with no problem? I’m in complete bliss but at the same time, y’all, the man is working me out! My arms felt like spaghetti after our first session. I’ll definitely keep you all updated on how it goes. So far, it feels awesome that I get to work out with my husband. Exercise makes us happy so of course I felt absolutely amazing afterwards!
Have you ever asked yourself what did I get myself into?
Tell me about your fitness or health epiphanies. I’d love to hear about them and to find out what you think about our new way to workout together.
