Fitness Update // One of Those Weeks

This week has been TERRIBLE workout wise!

As you know, the week before I was doing so well and I went to the gym every day. I had the intention of having a great week this week, too, though I knew I wouldn’t be able to go EVERY day.

But tragedy struck on Tuesday. Something terrible happened at work and at the time, it feel like the end of the world. I had a bit of a break down. Ok, a lot of a break down. And after finishing work at 7pm, I bypassed the gym and went straight for a bottle of wine. I felt sorry for myself all evening, which is probably what I needed to do. I then got a takeaway at 2am. This meant no workout on Wednesday because I was feeling pretty lousy. Thursday was another challenging day but it was also my last day before some time off work. After the week I had, I decided to let myself run straight home to wine.

Friday I was busy sorting things out but did a Zumba session, which was fun and on Saturday I had two events to go to, which meant I was out of the house from midday and had a night in a hotel and only got back on Sunday at midday. I danced a lot – that’s a workout, yes?

I didn’t go to bed until 3am so spent the day watching Making a Murderer and trying to keep warm. I had already told myself I could have Sunday to relax, thinking I would be ill. Thankfully, I wasn’t hungover, but I was tired all day.

I have 7 days off work now and I’m going to put this week behind me and start a new. My days will be full of blogging and going go the gym – I want to do some outdoor runs in the weather allows.

I really need to work on my coping mechanisms as it’s clear that I just don’t deal well with failure! Oops!

How was everyone else’s week?

    I had a crap week too so don’t worry! (Dancing is totally a workout!) I just felt like utter crap and couldn’t motivate myself to do any exercising at all, plus I had a cake order to do which meant less time for exercise and more temptation to eat cake! But like you, I’m going to put this week behind me and start afresh.
    We can do it! You always do so well, you’re definitely allowed a week off haha!

    Dancing is 100% a work out! I had a good week until Friday when I ordered the biggest curry ever. Don’t worry though, that doesn’t even sound like that bad a week. You’ll be back on track in no time 🙂

    These weeks happen to the best of us, we’re all human. I’m really sorry to hear you had a hard time : ( Exercise is the perfect way to make you happier! I use the gym and running as my Me-time and it always makes my day so much better. I hope you have a better week!

    The worst week is behind you now, we all have them, we’re human at the end of the day! Though reaching for a bottle of wine isn’t the best coping mechanism missy! A good length of time away from work and focusing on what you really love and enjoy will do you the world of good and you’ll smash your workouts!

    Don’t feel bad! There were different circumstances and this happens to all of us no matter how good intentions or plans are. I can totally relate to going straight home and having some wine. My work is not going too great at the moment either and I had something happen a little while back. My coping mechanisms are really bad, mainly overspending. There will be better weeks for your workouts.
