PTS and Sundry Info

  1. Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to be involved in my friend's PTS (Personal Training) practical exam, which she passed with flying colors (Congratulations, Lutador!). She had to develop a program for a case client, Gail. Yesterday, I was Gail, and my friend was my Personal Trainer. We did some cardio, we did the bench press, the overhead press, push ups, tricep dips, cooldown. Once the session was complete, the examiner provided her critique, and also providing the passing grade. Our reward and treat awaited us at Williams Coffee Pub for a hot drink and to share a yumyum waffle.


  2. Today was our first cleaning session with our lady. After we worked out some logistics, we got started, where basically I shadowed her. That worked well. The house smells, and looks amazing. It's almost a shame to have to use the bathrooms now! Wow. She is a hard worker, very thorough, she does a lot, she works fast, and taught me a few things as well. I am so glad that we decided to go ahead with this.


  3. Tomorrow, I might be able to finish the book that I've been reading. I am so close to completing The Lovely Bones, and so far I have enjoyed it. Not quite sure yet what I am going to select next from my bookshelf, but when I know, you'll know.

Good first day with the cleaning lady! Go ahead and use the bathrooms..

How can you put down that book when so close to the end???

Yep, that's the thing about a clean house: you don't want to use it, for fear of getting things dirty! How many times have I caught myself saying, "WATCH MY FLOOR! I JUST WASHED IT!"

The plan to finish my book was my tomorrow day, which is now today, so I guess I can finish tonight. Hopefully.

missdaday - I have graduated to that level I think. She really helped me in a lot of areas, and got me motivated to continue.

I have The Kite Runner in my list of books to buy....and my birthday is coming up (next week) so maybe my hubby will buy it if he runs out of ideas for me. :-)
