Oddly enough going to a fitness blogging conference has decreased the amount of time I have to blog.  The travel and the fact that I did not stay at the conference hotel (mistake!) cause me to be spending a good amount of time running back and forth that could have been used to absorb all the great lessons.   The panels on building community, increasing traffic and a few others really added to my blogging tool belt.  I will be implementing some changes this week in the format and hopefully in the content of my blog.  The one big take away was to make sure that everything is in my own voice.  I am still trying to find that through my writing and journaling and believe that the more reviews and other things I branch out to will help me.

I want to say thank you to those of you who are hear reading and help cheer me along.  It is because of you and the accountability you represent that I am still writing.  My blog is mostly a journal of my progress that I am trying to move more into fitness awareness.

Today I had my first training session locally and my trainer was great.  We spent quite a bit of time talking about what I wanted out of personal training since I already have such a diverse background in working out now.  I have decided that I will be doing personal training twice a week and I am going to use the process to do things that make me uncomfortable and that I have a hard time making myself do.  What are those things?  Elliptical machines, TRX, plyometrics, spinning class and even some yoga are all things I need to be pushed to do.  It is weird that I can do double treading classes, run a 5k, do crazy hard kettlebell classes, but other things like using an elliptical machine are the bane of my existence.

The motto for this new phase of my journey is “change your mind, change your life.”  I mentioned the personal training, but the biggest thing I need to get a handle on are my emotions and the binge eating that consistently derails all my efforts.  In order to do this the change I am consciously making is to get into therapy with an eating disorder specialist.  I think I have found one in town and my wife is helping me get set up with a regular session.  I feel this will be a huge step for me and it is one that I am not able to do without my wife helping.
