It's times like right now that I wish I had a personal trainer. I've been perservering with the Gym Junkies workouts (except that I mis-read the schedule and took an unscheduled Day Off, oops) but I'm feeling achy and tired and unmotivated. I think I bruised my heel in some way, because it hurts to run- it even hurts to walk after I've aggravated it. I also have some kind of ouchie just to the left of my spine, between my shoulder blades- I can't have pulled something way in there, can I? In any case, I've taken to writhing around on a tennis ball on the floor to attempt to massage that unreachable spot. G thinks that looks sexy. Husbands.
I'm still eating well, and I'm still dropping weight, but I'm frustrated anyway. I want someone outside of my own head to come up with a plan for me, with a beginning, middle and end. Do X, eat Y, stop when you get to Z. Correct your form on A, B and C. Treat injury D in such a way. And although I hate to admit it, I do take my inability to click with a trainer somewhat personally. The last guy I was seeing gave me a workout routine that I did not find challenging, so I emailed him with specific questions and feedback, and... never heard from him again. I thought we had a business relationship where he provided a service to me, and then when I told him that his service was not what I wanted and gave him an opportunity to fix it, he disappeared. It's not like we went on a bad date, dude!
So I don't know what to do. Today is an 'easy' day, I'll hit the elliptical because it doesn't aggravate my weird heel issue and try to come back stronger tomorrow.
