Attitude Adjustment and Crossfit

Monday, February 04, 2013

I am in need of an attitude adjustment, big time. Most of the time I feel very angry and bitter and I only have some idea why, and I'm just not sure how to turn it around. I have really noticed it lately, I just feel like I am constantly complaining and that I just hate everything and everyone. I don't WANT to be like that, but... I'm not sure how to make it better.

On a directly related note, there's a Crossfit box literally across the street from where I work. How did I never know that?!?!?!?!? I seriously don't know how I have worked here for 2 years and never knew that. Gawd. Anyway I've wanted to join Crossfit for a really long time and I've just been too nervous, I guess. But this sort of REALLY makes me want to join. How much easier could it be, seriously. I could WALK over there after work.

I keep hearing over and over about the camaraderie and the great friends you make at Crossfit. I've never really been the type to make friends in that way but you never know. Maybe it would help my attitude if I got involved with something, with people.

Talk to you guys later :)

    Yeah, sometimes joining something, or trying something helps with my attitude. Maybe it would work for you, too.

Have you ever heard of Gretchen Rubin and her blog/book The Happiness Project? She set out to sort of test different theories about how to get happy, then wrote a book about it. Some of the things she learned are interesting, and apply to lots of people.

    Sometimes going through the motions encourages the attitude change we need. Wishing you a rockin' day!

    That would help with you having the long commute too.. by the time you got home your workout is already done :)

I bet you would kick ass at it.. There is one close to our house too and if I can keep Brian exercises I am starting to think about doing that too.
