A Week in the Zone: Thursday

I had a very… what’s the PC word I’m looking for?… challenging…

I had a very challenging day at work today. And not in that good-challenging or fun-challenging or make-me-strong-challenging way of a CrossFit workout.

No. My day was challenging as in “TOTALLY SUCK-ASS.”

I couldn’t get it together to take photos of my food today. I’m tired. I’m hungry. My hormones are receding so I can enjoy the gift of being a woman. (It’s not fair! I don’t even want to have babies.) Based on all of the previous statements, you’d be correct in assuming I’m cranky.

But I loved my workout this morning, and I ate good-tasting, healthy food today, so not a total loss. I have to admit: I’m seriously considering a small serving of popcorn right now, but I’ll have it with some protein so y’all can rest easy.

    Your day may have sucked ass, but I wouldn’t have known. Thank you, THANK YOU, for taking the time to help me, eventhough you were dealing with corporate…”fun”. 🙂

    You… YOU were a delight. The rest of the day? Not so much.

    I just need to get my beauty sleep so I can remember that it’s only work and starting at 5:00 Friday, I don’t have to think about it again until Monday a.m. Seems like a sad-ish way to muddle through, but that’s the sitch right now.

    All I can say is YAY, CROSSFIT! I can’t wait to workout tomorrow and get outside on the weekend.
