SOOOO Happy togetherrrrrr....

Good Morning Folks,
So People have been asking me to show them the face of my pain instructor Aaron well here he is...Oh please don't let the boyish grin fool ya'll.

:Inflicting pain in the ass @ 5 am :Yelling at me to continue :Texting me the middle of the damn day to see what I'm eating :Thinking of painful workouts on the drive to the gym
This is the reason I curse so much in the morning, but the reason that I am on the way to my goal FINALLY....Boy his head is going to

So I had the pleasure of training with my girl Vanessa from Chi-Town this morning. Vanessa is an avid workout chick, but was distraught about what she had to endure this morning with Aaron and myself...
Take a look.


Walking on my hands to hit the damn medicine ball with my elbow! What the HECK!!!

At the end of the workout I looked like this.....

what the heck was all this that he had me doing? He was just showing off! But to tell you the truth, it felt good! Just not telling him that. I have found that my focus is different.

Before I only went to the gym as though it was my sentence as I paid for it, now I actually enjoy waking up at 4:15am to get to the gym and have a workout. Even though I have small goals to achieve I actually enjoy what I am doing. That is the different.

I have decided to make a small goal for myself and that is to run a mini mini marathon, so I went to the Running Room and asked questions. the gentleman was so happy because:

1) He thought he was going to get paid for signing another person up

2) He thought that he was going to coerce me to buy some shoes. But I was not having any of that.

I asked about a mini marathon.. He said "Oh a 10K" and I gasped for air a bit and laughed and said "NO" then he said oh okay "5K" and I asked him if there is one smaller than that, like a 2.5 k and he looked at me as though I was damn crazy and I was sooo dead serious. But he told me that alot of the marathon are walk and run marathons. So this is the goal, to be able to do this 5K run/walk without passing out and vomiting and peeing myself and passing out! August 21 or 22 is the attempted goal.... Oh dear Lord what have I gotten myself into....

Pray for me!

It was good Vanessa, so now as you go home to sleep, I go to work to a Mother's Day party at work with cupcakes, chips, chocolate and yes me with my veggies and hummus...BLAH!

I soooooooo hurt!


  1. You guys did really well today!! Vanessa was great. Tracy complained allot as per usual, but thats ok. I am used to it. Keep working hard Tracy...your gonna get to your goal!! No eating cookies!!!!!

  2. sorry, forgot to put my name.

    Aaron the great.

  3. I complain "Aaron the Great" because you think of this crap on the way to work to torture me... there is no trainers manual that says you must be in a plank position, hit the MEDICINE BALL with your elbow then walk in that plank to where the ball is and hit it again with your elbow! I don't know how you graduated Trainers University but I think you need to give back your papers as you weren't paying attention in class...LOL
    And the saga continues...
