So I had a great start to my day today, got up at 4:45 a.m. got my Jillian on did pretty good today actually even managed to drink a glass of water before my morning coffee.
What about breakfast you say no problem had my cup of coffee (w/ soy milk no sugar) and then my smoothie (managed 2 servings of fruit there) and all before I even left home and got to work early.
And from the there the day went to complete crap, not in any one major way but in a series of minor inconveniences that sucked the joy, energy and focus out of my day.
The air conditioning went down (and did I mention I live in the Caribbean so this was critical), my boss was late, everyone decided this was the morning to see him and nobody seemed to understand that a closed door and no light meant he wasn't there. I swear sometimes I regret that my parent taught me manners *sigh*. From there the rest of the day just swirled down the drain I couldn't seem to focus on anything, kept making the simplest of mistakes and didn't manage to complete a single thing on my do list today (not ONE!).
I felt so harried and bothered and out of focus, that I gave up and went out with co workers for two beers after work. Thinking about it now I'm pretty sure the calories were a bad idea but the relaxation gained in that time did restore some of my equilibrium.
Right now the worst part is that it's 11 pm and I only just finished my last two glasses of water to make up my eight for the day so here I go, off to bed with that annoying bloated feeling to cap off the day that was a great start but crappy ending.
I think it wouldn't have felt so bothersome if I hadn't managed to get such a good start, I think that's what pisses me off about today the great start that had me so proud of myself. Well hope tomorrow is better.
Cheers and goodnight.
