So. Rambo informed me last night that he gave notice and will be gone in less than two weeks, leaving me floundering around waiting for a new trainer. AGAIN. Grrrrrrrrrrrr.
You know, you KNOWWWWWWW in life, I do not mind making the hard choices. I do not mind finding the inner strength to get up and do something. I do not mind sucking it up and doing whatever it takes to get something started.
What I DO mind very much is having to KEEP doing it over and over like freaking Groundhog Day (a la Bill Murray.)
For instance, I needed a new roof for quite a while. It took a while before I got in a place to be able to deal with getting quotes, checking references, and just DEALING with the whole schmeal. I hate it in general, but it felt amaZing to (1) pick a contractor, (2) get a date for the installation and (3) know I was getting everything brand new.
What happened then was what I am talking about. They did a horrendous job. I had to complain, they came back, did another horrendous job. I had to get a home inspector out to verify that they, in fact, did a horrendous job, then they came back a third time. ARGGGGGGGGGGGG.
I had a remote starter put in my car. It took some jockeying to get a good date where nothing else was going on, but I finally had it installed. It felt amazing to have made and kept the appointment. Too bad the &*^%&*%! thing doesn't work when the temperature drops below 40 degrees. So now I have to deal with it ALL OVER AGAIN.
Those are the things that will drive me to utter distraction, that make me crazy. It was bad enough having to get up the wherewithall to deal with it once, but having to KEEP addressing it...ughhhhhhhhhh.
So here we are going on trainer number 4. Ugh. Weight, height, fat composition, goals, blah blah blah. What a freaking waste of my time! It's bad enough getting up the gumption to GO to the gym, to deal with all the paperwork of contracting for a trainer, but really? Every two weeks I end up with no trainer anyway. I do really want to scream, but to whom? I don't even get the advantage of coming home to bytch to a spouse about the unfairness of the planet.
Nope, it's "suck it up, buttercup" as usual. Oh. Wait. But I have all of YOU to whine to, and that does not go unnoticed. Thank you very much. Now, if you could draw me a nice hot bath and arrange for a deep massage to get rid of the stress of it all, I'd really appreciate it.
In the meantime, I have half a mind to start acting like I don't NEED a trainer. I'm not sure, though, where the other half of my mind is, so I don't want to be too hasty.....
