Ok, so this is going to sound like a lot of dramatic whining, but its how I feel:
I had a HORRIBLE day at work yesterday. There are 3 people in my department and I knew one of them had requested the day off. Well sure enough the other girl came in really really sick and ended up leaving. I was stressed to the max all day trying to keep up with the work of 3 people. By the time work was over I had a massive headache and a bad attitude. I wanted to ditch derby practice. But in the spirit of positivity I told myself to just go and try to skate off my frustrations. When I first got there I was in a funk and I was irritated by almost everything (how many people were there, the drills the trainer was doing, my inability to be good at certain things) BUT I stuck with it. By the end of the two hours I felt GREAT, I felt like I had improved some things and I was enjoying myself. I even went home and did my January Jumpstart video, and got to bed early.
I will continually remind myself of the positive effect exercise has on my mood. Because most of the time the reason I miss working out is because i'm too cranky or pissed off.
2013 the year of positivity!
