When You Get Burned Out
So, I set my goal and the three of us are in the process of getting on the same page so I have what I need to meet my goals. I truly was in burn out mode, and what I'm grateful for is that I have amazing trainers at Fitness Together like Michael and Sully. They take the time to listen to me vent and express what I'm feeling and thinking, but then they actually help me work through it and then are there to help guide me. One of the things we did was an assessment on Monday, and it was a real eye-opener because in these last few months I gained about 30 pounds. But, like I said I've gotten back on track, and I know I can't be hard on myself because this is just part of the journey, and I just need to remember how much I've still accomplished and be proud that I didn't give up completely. And don't get me wrong, Michael and Sully aren't the only amazing trainers at FT, and even though they don't train me regularly they still put up with my mood swings and are always taking the time to listen to me. So big shout out to Roberto, Aaron, Colt, Matt, and Terri. And I also want to thank another FT client and sister Jennifer. She's been my running buddy for quite some time now, and she's been a great support system as far as talking. We both are looking forward to turning our runs into a couple days of just going for some mental and emotional therapeutic walks. These are going to be my recovery days and it will give us an opportunity to just go out, walk, and just enjoy talking.
Right now I'm feeling like I have this fresh start and feel like I've got a good balance to help me keep from feeling overwhelmed and burned out. And what better way to have a fresh start than with a new workout/nutrition journal? The journal that's pictured, I found today and had to get it when I saw "Trust The Journey", because when I'm struggling or doubting anything Michael is always telling me to trust the process.
