Trainer Time

You know I couldn't go too long with blogging about my exercise and healthy eating goals!
Yup!  I'm on to something new.
I'm realizing a long-time dream of mind and have actually hired a personal trainer.  He is the husband of a co-worker of mine who goes to clients homes and works out with them there with the equipment (or lack of equipment) the person has.  Depending on what you want he has different options ranging from just setting up a home program with no training sessions, to multiple sessions and a program to training athletes for triathlons.
I've chosen a five week program where he comes to my house once a week and works me out for an hour and has four additional "homework" sessions for me to do on my own for the following week.  Our first session was today and he worked me pretty hard; I could perform all the exercises and was tired at the end but not exhausted.  
I'm hoping this propels me over the stagnant point that I've been at for a year in that the workouts are more specific to me and I'm hoping more effective.
Along with this training I'm going to also work hard with healthy eating, not much different than usual.  Perhaps a bit stricter because I'm actually paying money now and I don't want to negate it with a lousy diet.  

Here I go again!
