Good: I’m back to training this week.
Bad: It hurts.
Good: I didn’t drown or throw up at the pool Monday.
Bad: After the first 200 yards, I fervently hoped for either of the above to save me from more swimming.
Good: My first run – out in the dark and the cold – felt lovely.
Bad: The bike fell off the trainer, while I was on it.
Good: I got my first round of winter strength training in.
Bad: I cringe every time I move and hobble around like a little old lady.
Good: I’m leaving for Hawaii soon.
Bad: Taking my car into the shop for that minor stuck door problem has turned into $1500+ of repairs.
Good: Hot yoga with my mom tonight.
Bad: My yoga mat is in the car. At the dealership. Oops.
Good: Waking up early for workouts has been easy this week.
Bad: Because I haven’t been sleeping.
Good: Tomorrow is another day. I will tackle the pool again and it will be better.
Bad: My swim bag? In the car. At the dealership. Where the service department has already closed for the night.
Good: I will overcome all this crap and take the relaxed approach. Things will work themselves out. My mom has an extra yoga mat for me. Instead of packing my swim gear for Hawaii, I’ll just hit a Walmart near the airport and buy a pull buoy and paddles for the week = less to carry on the plane!
I will be zen about life’s ups and downs no matter how many beers it takes!
