Oh my lands...if you could hear the blog titles that have come out of my head this morning! HA! *shaking my head* I feel ashamed.
I'm not having the best day. Or, rather, I'm just not in the best mood. Mostly because I missed my morning swim, which throws off my entire day's plans and I need to rework my day again. Also because I have given in to eating out no less than 4 times in the past 2 days. What IS that? That's not me! It's just a mark of my not being prepared for the changes that needed to be made during the start of the football season. I just didn't realize that sitting for 2 hours in the sun and heat would take so much out of me and that the Olympics being on at the same time would steal hours from my sleeping schedule for the week. But, I'll do what I do best - readjust. I missed my swim this morning, but I won't miss it for the day. Even though I'm sore and tired and could probably use a little rest, I need today's swim both for the stress relief factor and because I'm trying to retrain my body and mind to expect 5 days of workouts and a more relaxed, but still active, weekend. And the only way to stop "starting over" is to stop giving up before the end of the week!
I also think I might need to take a little time from work today. I have had a headache since Tuesday and it's really eating into my stamina as well. I need a good long swim followed by a good long nap followed by a good homecooked and Paleorific meal. That would do me up just right...
We shall see how it all turns out, but I'm trying not to be negative about everything. The morning is over and even though I have the quote, "People are especially stupid today; I can't speak to any more of them." running through my head, I simply can't give in to the negativity because it will shut me down.
How do you guys pull yourself out of a morning slump?
You can see this blog written differently (*lmao*) at The Life & Times of the Fit Fat Girl.
Also keep an eye on that blog because I'll be posting a little recap of this week's new recipes from my meal plan and let your know which ones are keepers, which ones were just alright, and which ones were total flops (there actually WAS a major flop this week!).
I'll also try to keep posting there this weekend...something I don't do here usually. Let's hope I can find the time to do it! (usually I don't blog anywhere on the weekends because I'm trying to get things done and just don't have time to sit down at the computer).
