Some days will feel all grey even if the sun is shining.
This is how I felt yesterday… It was an absolutely gorgeous fall day with blue skies and sunshine and I could not pinpoint exactly what was making me feel so down. I could definitely tell that I was feeling off. It probably had something to do with the fact that I had a stomach bug for a few days and my sleep schedule was thrown off. Or maybe it was the fact that I had an awful dream.
Thankfully, my classmate, friend, and workout buddy Mahealani and I made plans to work out in the morning. We drove to campus together and killed it in the gym. Once I sat down in class I started to feel really uneasy. I think I was stressed about the fact that our test was getting moved up an entire day (from Friday to Thursday.) It is also week #3 in the quarter, and we hadn’t gotten the guidelines for our final group project. After class that gloomy feeling continued to follow me. It was an oddball of a day because we also experienced a power outage.
I took a long nap and did not want to move. Thankfully I pulled myself out of bed and went to Zumba class. This was the turning point in my day. Everyone was excited to see me and I got to dance. My life is always better when I’m dancing. On top of that, our instructor invited me to dance on stage twice!
When I got home the power was still out and we had no internet, but I felt a hell of a lot better and I was calm enough to do a little problem solving. I went to the local university to prepare my study guide for today’s exam and I was able to accomplish a lot.
This morning I still felt a little out of sorts with the power still being off. I almost stayed home, but instead I pulled myself together. Instead of doing the strength training workout that I planned, I decided to take a dip in the pool and swam 2100 yards!
I felt a little restless in class, but got through it and I think I did okay on the test too!
It has taken me a while to decompress from the week and now I have a technical book to read (due Tuesday) and a paper to write and turn in by tomorrow at midnight. It has been kind of hard for me to focus once again, but I am going to just get to work.
I am planning on taking a Mixxedfit class this evening and am looking forward to it!
How is your week going so far?
