I think a good mood is much like a balloon ... it brings joy and it floats around in a carefree manner. Much like I felt when I got up yesterday, ready to face another day with optimism. Then later in the morning when faced with frustration, my good mood had some of the air let out. and before I knew it poof, it was gone. I didn't want to do anything because whatever I did wasn't turning out the way it should. Something that should have taken no time at all couldn't be done the same way it had been done in the past and in some cases I had to go back to GO and NOT collect .... well, whatever they do in Monopoly. It was so defeating, so frustrating, so tiring, so ....
I had my workout clothes again to do a short sprint on the bike and treadmill during my lunch hour but with my mood ... could anything motivate me. Well, something did. It was the comments I received about yesterday's post that I checked out before lunch. Thanks ladies. So even though my heart wasn't in it, I headed downstairs at noon. Funny thing, a lot of the tension I was feeling was gone when I had put in my time. It's becoming a trend. I forgot my lunch again and ended up having to walk for my lunch too. It was a couple of blocks to Subway and I thought that was my best bet.
I was ready to crash when I got home but I was faced with baking a cake and getting a veggie tray together. We're celebrating a birthday in my department today and it's my turn to bring the goodies and to top that off we're also having a company wide chili-cookoff to raise money for our Christmas families. My evening had extra activities in it, but I made the effort to still get to the gym for a mini-session before dinner.
All I can say is I must REALLY want a loss next Monday.
