Thoughts on a Bad Day.

I am having a not-so-great day. Nothing in particular has been bad. I just don’t feel my best. I don’t like not feeling my best. As much as I hated it, and feel guilty, I didn’t workout today. Seriously? Bummed.
This week has sucked as far as my fitness. Me no likey. I wasn’t home until late Monday so there was no workout done. I had things to do after work on Monday and Tuesday, and was starving by the time I got home…So I ate, then did late workouts, which meant shorter workouts than normal. Today I was FINALLY going to be able to do a full workout and….It didn’t happen.

Why? I don’t feel so great today. I’ve been kinda nauseated this afternoon (heat?). I’ve also been reminded of why I really need to remember to take my vitamin. I’ve had a “foggy” kind of day…Really forgetful, head is in the clouds, feel totally disorganized and like I’m not sure what I’m doing, and have been feeling fatigued. Sometimes I forget that I have anemia and that it really is necessary to get that vitamin in everyday. I’ve been bad about that for about a week, and I can totally tell. No worries though, I’ve already taken it tonight.

Amazingly, despite a horrible dinner (not a lot, but not the healthiest either - but also not junk) I’ve been able to avoid become even more nauseated. This generally happens if I take a vitamin without enough food in my stomach.

I also cannot forget that my fingers feel puffy and tight (as they have the last few nights). This means that I am retaining some water. Even MORE fun! HA!

I am not a fan of complaining like this. I generally reserve my whining for my loved ones…Not the general public. If that’s the case then why did I post the day’s ailments in a whiny blog? It’s a reminder… To all of you. Don’t forget that when you’re having a bad day, you’re not alone. We all have our bad days. It’s how we get through them that matters. Don’t let a bad day keep you down. When it’s time for bed, let it go….Whatever the problem.

How awesome that we can wake up in the morning with a fresh new day waiting for us! Personally, I’m pretty excited about that. I’m ready to feel better. I am not a fan of days where I feel like this. I have confidence that I’ll wake up tomorrow with a positive attitude, ready to take on the day (challenges included, as frustrating as they might be). I am looking forward to coming home tomorrow and doing an awesome workout.

Whenever you have a bad day, push through it even if it’s discouraging. Don’t be too hard on yourself. Remember that tomorrow is a new day.
