I'm going to apologize ahead of time for some TMI. I got every woman's "friend" yesterday. I knew it was going to come soon, but in the past I had never been regular so I wasn't totally expecting it. (Although I think I'm more regular than I was.. possibly from losing weight or the exercise or both)
Regardless I got hit with a case of the "I have one last nerve and just about everyone I interacted wtih scraped it raw." This was not reality, just how I felt. And a problem because I work in a public library and interact with the public.
Despite that, I think I didn't let my...irritation.. with people show. But inwardly I was seething.
So I came home and was greeted exuberantly by my kids. Again..everything was getting on my nerves and I don't want to be like that with my kids. So I gave them hugs..then told my hubby I was changing into my workout gear and taking a good long walk on the treadmill.
This was a big mental shift for me. That I *wanted* to workout..and I knew it would help my mood.
AND.. the fact that I followed through and did it. HUGE..... MENTAL...SHIFT.
So 45 minutes and 2.85 miles later, I felt..better.
Then I went and did a workout I found at livefit revolution with my kettlebell. 50 minutes worth at least.
**side note..earlier in the evening I tried on my cold weather running tights that had been delivered yesterday.. and my daughter said "Mommy you look smaller.. you look good!" and since kids that age call them like they honestly see them... it made my day.
