alright, so it's april 1st... and this is not the way i wanted to start my month.
first off, due to some pretty crazy rain we had over the weekend and all day on monday and tuesday... when i went to the gym on tuesday morning, they were closed. entire front entrance was flooded and they said they had some water in the building, too. alright, so that sucks... then yesterday morning (wednesday) i had to go get my 3rd root canal in less than 3 months done, plus a filling. great way to start my day off. then i get home, and i'm exhausted, and numb as heck because it took 4 shots of novacaine... so i popped some advil and took a lil nap.. woke up with a fat lip and had to go down to H&R Block to get my taxes done (finally) ... got some really good news there, so that was cool.
so then i call my gym this morning, and they're not picking up... so i take the ride down there just to check it out.. and they're still flooded.. the whole parking lot is full of water.. and i saw them trying to remove water from the entrance... so i'm pretty sure they won't be open til AT LEAST tuesday... and this is REALLY REALLY REALLY upsetting me. i'm so angry that it makes me feel like crying. i've been doing SO awesome for the last month, i REALLY wanted to start April off great, and the gym being closed has me really down... i've literally got tears in my eyes right now and my dad was like, well why don't you just hop on the treadmill?? and i said, that's not what i'm focusing on right now!!! i'm focusing on LIFTING! this is derailing me! i don't want to go to another area gym and pay a "per day" fee to workout in an environment that i'm not even used to just because my gym (that i'm PAYING for) is closed due to flooding! i can only pray that i don't lose the muscle and gains that i've made in march due to this. i feel so distraught right now, and i'm sure a bunch of you will read this and think, for god's sake wendi, just chill out.. take it as a couple rest days or something.. but i don't want to.. i know, i'm throwing a tantrum right now, but i can't help it.
this is not how i wanted this month to start. i will have to really go hard when they open again, and for the time being, really focus on my nutrition.. keep that on point.. and not let this impact all parts of my life... anyway, sorry for such a downer blog.. i'm just really upset and needed to vent.
gotta BRING IT in APRIL guys! 2 months away from june already!
