One month ago today, I finally did something I’ve always wanted to do. I hired a personal trainer. I have worked out sporadically over the years, but have a really hard time staying motivated. Out of the 16 years I have carried a membership, I have probably only spent a total of 36 hours at the gym. This includes dropping kids off in the childcare center, socializing with other moms and spending extra time in the locker room so I could have a few minutes of peace before picking the kids up again.
