You ever have one of those days where it seems like all the fates are against you? Like everything in the world is trying to stop you from having a good day? Ever tell those days where to stick it?
Today was one of those days…but it seems like I found the perfect recipe for a good mood kind of day…
I’ve been working out pretty steadily since I joined the gym last week, but until today, I had not set foot in the gym before 8am. Well, with my work schedule keeping me at the hospital until after 7pm this week, I KNEW if I wanted to get a workout in, that it would have to be early. And actually, it seems like having to get up, get dressed AND get in the car is a bit more of a motivator than I thought. Before I even really felt conscious, I had a date in my mouth and was heading out the door!
And guess what! While I was at the gym, I made some new friends! After 30 minutes on the elliptical, I headed back to the activity room to make up a short circuit to run through, but when I got back there, there was already a group doing the same thing. One of them invited me to join in and the next thing I know, I’m pumping some
iron hand weights!
Annnnnd? It looks like I have a
new my first running buddy! We got to talking about running and I’m going to be joining one of the girls on Thursday for a 7 miler! Now…to get over the fact that I’ve only ever run 5 miles at once! Eeeek!
So after my GREAT workout and of course being on the new friend high (hey, I don’t get out much, mmkay?), I came home to my much anticipated breakfast!
Told you I knew what I was having for breakfast!
The verdict? Oh yeah, Elise knows her stuff! This was my first experience with the chia seed pudding texture (which took a little getting used to) but the flavors were out.of.this.world!
Anywho, back to sticking it to the bad day!
I should not have had a good day at work today. It was determined from the beginning. Here’s what went down in bullet format because, you know, bullets always make things seem more severe:
- First patient of the day…code “brown”…if you don’t know what code brown means, think about it…it’s brown and rhymes with schnit!
- Second patient of the day…yells at me for 15 minutes (in the middle of the waiting room) about having to come in for a scan only to sit down and shut up when I told her she had the choice to leave.
- Doctor on the warpath
- Lunch postponed for 45 minutes
- Bathroom break? What bathroom break? I don’t think that’s in your job description!
All that, and I STILL left work smiling…sometimes I let things get to me too much, but not today. I rolled with the punches and kept on going!
And then there was dinner…two guesses as to what I had…
Aren’t you surprised?!
Kashi Go Lean/Kamut Puffs, peanut flour, shredded coconut, raspberries, almond milk.
Ha! Take THAT bad day!
When is your favorite time of day to work out?
I’m usually more of a late morning/afternoon kinda gal, but with days like today, I think I could get used to early mornings!
Do you find you’re in a better mood after morning workouts?
