Day 1. Again. How many Day 1’s does one person get?
As many as a person needs. (I have 10 results that come up when I search for the key phrase “day 1” in my blog…)
I had another Day 1 today. This time, I was sized up (literally–I gained 10 lbs since my back injury, and had gained 15 lbs due to a situational depression prior to that.. eep!) and figured out. I met with Jody from the fitness center and asked her to be my trainer. I talked to her about my back injury and what I’ve been through…
- Wipe out at Warrior Dash
- Spontaneous back injury – I linked that entry because I remember writing my weight in the snow.
- Physical Therapy
- Chiropractic Care
I let her know that we (Jeff and I) are at a point where we’re willing to try anything really. The cool thing is that in addition to being a personal trainer, she actually has experience with physical therapy and rehabilitation. She was really nice about figuring out whether I care more about form or function at this point. I had let her know about a friend’s wedding coming up in October and how the dresses she admires are more like sausage casings at this point. More important, though, is my functional ability to move and be myself. I can wear an A-line dress if it comes down to it.
With functionality in mind, my day 1 is going to start on Friday with some resistance band exercises to figure out where my muscle imbalances are. We’re going to go through a rehabilitation program for my back/core, I’m going to keep up with chiropractic care, and we’ll see how it goes. Jody said that we’ll be able to transition from the therapy to actual fitness workouts once my strength is rebuilt.
After about 3 weeks, she wants to see a food journal. Guess the photo tracker is making a resurgence 😉
