    I think you look beautiful!! I would love to have a trainer, virtual or in person, I tend to work out harder in group situations, like at a group fitness class.

    I so need to add strength training to my routine! April is going to be our month! 😀

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Thank you!! 🙂

      That’s great that you are adding weights too. Good luck in April!

    I laughed when you said you forgot how to do the moves once you got to the gym. I am the same way! I am still in week 1 with Suzanne’s training. You’re doing a great job! Cannot wait to read your results end of week 6!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Glad it’s not just me. 😀

      I am excited to see what results you get too. What are your goals? Weight loss? Strength?

      After only 2 weeks I already felt stronger. Not only did I have to increase the weight amount but I felt like my glutes were rock hard. It was awesome!

        My goals are fat loss and strength. If I could lose 5 to 10 pounds of fat and put on 5 to 10 pounds of muscle, I’d be a happy camper. I want Linda Hamilton arms in Terminator 2!

          LOL she had some bitchin’ arms in that movie. Just don’t go extreme like Madonna. 😉

    Hi, Lisa! Found you through Lori at Finding Radiance. I need a knee replacement and have decided to increase my strength training in order to get my knees strong enough to make recovery and rehab easier, and goodness knows I need help in the glute department! A virtual trainer would be great, so I’ll look into Suzanne’s plan. Thanks!

      Thanks for checking out my blog.

      I really hope you can either avoid surgery or make your recovery time quicker with exercises. Suzanne is great and has several plans.

    You look amazing. Once we get to our goal weight there are always parts we still don’t like. I’m not crazy about my thighs, even though I’ve lost 45lb and I’m a US size 6/8! I will probably always hate them but I try to remember that no one else cares about them so I shouldn’t either, then I put shorts on 🙂

    I don’t need a trainer, but I do like the face to face aspect that the trainers at my gym give me. Essentially they just design my program and leave me to it, but I can celebrate successes with them, and have them encourage me if I need it. I recently started doing unassisted chin ups, and my trainer and I hi-fived. Pretty cool to have him around for that!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Thank you, Jess. And you are right — there will always bit parts that we’ll focus on, even if we lose a lot of weight. No one is perfect, yet somehow we expect ourselves to be.

      Way to go on unassisted chin ups! So impressed!!!

    Way to go, Lisa! This sounds like the perfect way to shake-up your workout routine. I think it’s awesome that you’ll learn some new exercises and challenge your body in a way that’s different than usual. Can’t wait to hear about it over the next few weeks. 🙂

    1. Lisa Eirene

      I definitely needed to shake things up.

    I KNOW I need to strengthen my glutes to help my back too….

    1. Lisa Eirene

      You should! I feel so much better after only a few weeks!

    Thanks for the shout-out Lisa! So glad we connected on Twitter way back when. I’m proud of you for tackling this goal – you’ll be able to bounce a quarter off that booty soon ;).
