Emotions the Day After
Spent the day angry, frustrated, depressed, grumpy, and generally in a lousy mood. DNFing pretty much sucks even if you believe it was the right decision. Worse is the thing that caused it. In my case, the freakin' knee pain that I don't have a diagnosis for because the medical system is ridiculously slow and unhelpful. Grrrrrrrr!!
I was a woman on a mission at the gym today. Accomplished 3 sets of 45secs plank followed by 10,10, 9 push-ups. Yeah, baby, that's what I'm talkin' 'bout! Also muscled through my arm strength work with higher weights on two of the exercises and survived another session on the foam roller. Ha!
Got something in my inbox from Victoria's Secret online advertising a special on push-up bras. I paused for a moment and wondered why on earth anyone would need a bra specifically for push-ups. Running, sure, but push-ups? Oh wait, now I get it...
And just like that, I've mostly snapped out of my funk. There's joy to be found in every moment. It's just a matter of how you look at things.
