Well, its bound to happen. No one is ever in a good mood ALL the time. I will be completely honest (as I always am), I am a pessimist. Hubs can attest to that. I have been really working on one of my major issues. I have a problem with letting things get to me and carrying them around with me all day. Just because one "issue" arises it dosent have to kill my whole day. Even though it usually does. Its only because I let it though. I have a very hard time shaking a bad mood and sometimes I can very easily put myself in that mood with little effort. I have to work hard to find the balance and find a way to let it go.
You know that saying "woke up on the wrong side of the bed?" Well I think last night, I went to bed on the wrong side. I was in a lousy mood (for a reason I am totally aware of and have no control over) when I headed upstairs, so in my mind I was already doomed. After a crappy nights sleep (or lack there of) I was up and off to the gym. I knew what was coming... my two least favorite exercises all wrapped up in a bow waiting for me... double unders and pullups.
After failing at one of my favorite exercises (squats) because my hip is still bothering me. I was not looking forward to this WOD at all. I wasnt not going to do it, and I wasnt goin to give up... but I was not really happy. I knew this was going to have an affect on my performance, but I also knew I had to give it all I got. I really wish I could have found a way to shake the mood, but I was in way to deep at that point and I was just really trying to not let it show all over my face.
The WOD was what it was... I completed it (even though I had to drop to a band from kipping pullups to get the cardio in) and I was ready to forget it happened. However, its days like today that make me realize that there are lots and lots of things I need to work on, both mentally and physically. K said to me "if you killed evey workout how much of a challenge would it be?" and she is right. It would be no fun if it was easy... it was a humbling day.
It was also a day that made me realize I have been slacking on my pullups and I need to get back on that! Its time to "adjust the sails" and head in the right direction.
