OK, as some of you know I have been making changes in my life since late July/Beginning of Aug 05. So far I have done most of my WL without any "real" exercise, just cutting my portions, ect. I live a VERY sedentary life and dont like it. I like to get out but it is hard with 3 kids and other obligations like all of us have....but here is the kicker, I live over an hour (70miles) from a gym. So as much as I would love to go 3-5 times a week, it just isnt feesable for me, plus I want someone to work out with to help keep me motivated. So I have been considering calling a nutritionist and seeing what they say about my diet in general, and then talking to a personal trainer to see about maybe even 1 day a week for 2 hours worth of "working out".
I know ideally I should be going to work out more often but it just isnt possible where I live. So do you think that 1 day a week with a personal trainer would make any difference? Or, would it be a waste of money? I would be looking at having gym fees (if I am lucky I can get a day to day membership since ultimately I would ve using it 4-5 times per month) Gas money to and from that alone is $15 per trip. Plus then the personal trainer fees which I imagine would be like $40-60/hr. (I figure I can pay for 1 hour of training and then work out alone for 1 hr also)
Any ideas? I thought about just getting some resistance bands and working out at home, but like my treadmill, there would be no one to do it with me and I would lose my motivation FAST. I also considered putting an ad in my paper to see if anyone would want to drive with me, but then the bad thing about that is that if they would want to do any shopping or something, then your stuck and since I would have to go in the late afternoon/evening it would be at least 10pm until we would get back to town as it is.....so I need HELP ladies/gents.
ANY IDEAS???? HELP, I need to get this last 20(ish) pounds off.
