I hate working out with husbeast but at least he's getting active

Sunday, January 08, 2012

Poor guy. He's so used to having an adoring group of people hanging onto his every word. But ... listening to others? Nope, not a skill he ever developed.

But over the years, not knowing nutrition, never exercising, and walking around in semi-comas from diabetes he knew nothing about -- now he's got nerve damage to his feet.

I've been gently trying to push him into exercise -- any exercise. Finally he's working with a personal trainer, developing a routine.

Alas, that means he is now an exercise expert.

Regretfully that now means when we do workouts at the same time in the gym, he now considers himself the expert on using the machines. My 35 years of experience mean nothing.

I've learned my lesson and have decided to keep pilates classes to myself.

    I feel your pain. My husband is the EXACT same way. He is not new to exercise, he's just not consistent. BUT, because he was personal trainer years ago (an not to mention probably 150lbs lighter), he thinks he knows everything, but is totally clueless about nutrition, portion sizes, etc. Ugggh...drives me nuts. LOL....

    Like you, I have my pilates time, where he can't drive me mad! emoticon

    Happy Losing!

    I know how you feel. we must be married to twins. I pray daily that my neighbors will be able to walk with me so that we can set our own goals and not be goaded into follwing som e on elses. I am glad though that your dh is working to improve his health.
