I wrote last week about freaking my trainer out with my "too real" food diary, in which I ate cheesecake for breakfast. What? What? Apparently all the people in his world live on egg whites, protein shakes and broiled chicken.
Several people suggested I find another trainer. I understand why, but none of the trainers at the gym listed a specialty of working with overweight people. And I like my big gay gym, where it's 90 percent male eye candy.
The trainer is a nice guy, he's just sort of a "throw yourself in the deep end" kind of person. If you ask a question about healthy snacks, he suddenly starts talking about getting a Magic Bullet (that wasn't what I thought it was at first, ahem) and making protein/fiber shakes.
I had a talk with my trainer and I'm backing off from the food diary for a while. He was also open enough to read the When Food Is Love book. Yes, I gave my trainer homework.
My goal for April is to work out 3x a week at the gym and one other time at home and have 2 out of my 3 meals be healthy ones instead of 3 high-fat meals a day, which is what I've BEEN doing.
Just fyi, I can leg press 260. I'm a frigging leg pressing monster!
Thanks for all your support and suggestions! Dawn
