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?
