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!

    The wonders of exercise! I'm glad it was able to pull you out of a's a pain to start up when you're feeling cranky, but it seems to me it's always worth it. Keep up the good work, lady!
    @ SCAREWALDORF: That has got to be one of my favorite lines in the movie. You're awesome!

    Sometimes I wonder if it's possible to not get pissed off at work. I mean, it happens to me basically every day. Like you, exercise always manages to make me feel better though. Nice work pushing yourself! Keep it up, yo.

    I'd say that is a great Non-Scale Victory! emoticon

    It's like Elle Woods (of Legally Blonde) tells us.

    "Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people don't kill their husbands. They just don't"

    Or, in your case, team mates.

    Seriously though, great work! xoxo
