Sassy Sage Suffers Self-Doubt
“… we were doing these workouts from hell and I found myself slowly start to slip into my normal ‘I’m really doing bad. I’m getting a horrible time. I’m feeling sorry for myself’ mode. I could feel myself falling farther and farther into that negative mindset and before I knew it, the workout was over and I didn’t have time to snap out of it and ‘man-up’ and switch back into thinking positive. So, the workout was over and I was stretching… and I was feeling disappointed not so much in my performance, but in myself for letting all that doubt and negativity consume me.”
My Post-Angie Update:
Thanks to Nyquil and a big dose of Natural Calm, I slept 9.5 hours last night – and I was able to lie flat! I had just one coughing fit around 2:30 a.m…. other than that, I slept soundly. What a difference a good night’s sleep makes!
My abs are a little tender, and my biceps are very aware I did pullups yesterday, but I’m not hobbled. Whew.
I thoroughly enjoyed my mellow morning: made a spinach omelet, drank chamomile tea, watched a little of a silly morning news show… now I’m ready to tackleCrossFit Women tomorrow in what promise to be frigid temperatures. Yay, Under Armor Cold Gear.
