So I woke up expecting the day to suck... I woke up before my alarm. My swim suit was still wet from Tuesday because I threw it in a heap on the floor... but even with that, I couldn't successfully talk myself out of going to swim.
At swimming we did a ton of cardio and I expected myself to fail and kinda half-ass the work out since I've been really ache-y this week. But I got distracted from my state of grump and wound up doing everything 100%. My arms were tired and quads... and then Trainer (also instructor of swim) told me we were doing a 5 round work out today... and I whined. UGH!! I don't think I can do it! 50 pushups! My arms are already so sore!!! But we got to her house and started. I was shaking through most of the work out, but I completed it 100 percent.
I dreaded taking a shower. But I did it. I dreaded putting on clothes. But I did it. I dreaded making breakfast. But I did it.
I dreaded going to the music department - where all the garbage I've been working on for 2 weeks was going to be finalized and go to the printer. But I went. And it didn't suck! It was actually really relieving to get rid of all those programs that have been plaguing me for WEEKS.
I dreaded practicing piano. But I did it... and I got 5 out of 8 scales up to to tempo! And I dreaded my voice student coming for her lesson... then she canceled. By that time I realized in every way, today was good. I have no reason to be whining or complaining. I spent a lot of energy and stress on dread this week - not to mention grinding my teeth. I walked home. With the cancelled lesson, I would be able to eat on my normal schedule. I would be able to chill out at home for 30 minutes.
I left for my next shift. The sun was shining and I had a silly song in my head by Tim Minchin (very hilarious, I mean, it's about boobs, p.s. it swears)! I smiled and hummed myself all the way to work without a coat.
For being the busiest and crappiest day of the week... It sure was a good one. I tried so hard to hate it and that just didn't work out.
Big Fat Good Day Love,
