My trainer Sharon and her family are moving out of the country next month.
What?! Huh?! What?!
I was stunned by this news. With her help I have lost 30 pounds in the past two years - nowhere near as quickly as I would have liked but it's been a total life change for me and everyday I come closer to realizing that THIS (eating healthy and working out 4-5 times a week) IS going to be my life - for the rest of my life.
She's been a wonderful friend, giving me advice and support and that ever-essential accountability.
I will miss her but I'm also very happy for this amazing opportunity she and her family have to live in another country and truly experience a different life.
But I also have a decision to make. I can switch to a new trainer - she suggested another woman who can work with my schedule (5am is AWESOME!) but I'm not obligated to continue with a trainer.
Part of me wants to try it solo for a while (the cheap part me - personal training is EXPENSIVE!) and if it doesn't work, hire a new trainer after a couple months.
Part of me KNOWS that I truly NEED the accountablility that a trainer gives me.
So I have a decision to make.
I also need to (quickly) think of a good "Thank You!" slash "Congratulations" slash "Good Luck" gift for Sharon...
