Mondays suck...Even though it was Halloween, there was a cool parade in town, and my kids had a blast, yesterday kind of sucked...
I got up early yesterday to get an email out to you, get my workout in, get the last of meals prepped and well, all of my preparation still couldn't prevent Monday from being, well, a Monday.
It started out as I was doing my workout---I just couldn't get into it. It felt harder than it usually is, I felt like I had less energy, and just couldn't really focus. Sometimes workouts are like that---every workout can't be a killer one so you just work through the kind of "bland" ones.
But then as I was getting my lunch together I had just poured my big mug of coffee and didn't put the lid on it. As I was putting my breakfast that I put together last night (overnight oats recipe I posted on Facebook), I bumped into the mug, knocking it everywhere... the counter, into the drawers, over my kids homework...
The kitchen still smells like coffee!
Fortunately my wife took control, remained calm, helped me get it cleaned up.
I, on the other hand, just wanted to yell and kick things...
Isn't that funny how your spouse usually takes control when you lack it? Just an observation I've had because I'm able to do the same thing for her when that happens...
That was strike 2.
Next, I pull out of the driveway and my windshield keeps freezing over because of the temps outside so I had to pull over and keep wiping off the windshield. Again, usually the car warms up a little more but since the coffee incident I was running quite a bit late by this point...
So after pulling over 3 times to clean off the windshield I was about 8 minutes late to work where there was a line of kids waiting at my door. And of course, they just pile in front of it blocking the door (and they know how I hate that but yet, it continues to happen...)
I get in class and prepare to indulge in my late breakfast that i prepared last night---my delicious bowl of overnight oats---a new recipe I've been waiting to try.
I take the first bite...
And it was frickin' awful!
And that's when I knew... it was a Monday...
Sometimes we have to be willing to push through the suck...
We have to know that things won't always be easy. Our food won't always be the most delicious (although that's the goal!), recipes won't always work out.
But it's not the end of the world.
Embrace the suck because that makes the good times that much better.
Are you ready to "Embrace the Suck" in your workouts? Even though there's another program that launches today (one that's pretty badass), this program right here will get you bootcamp fit in just 22 minutes...
Have a great Tuesday, my friend!
Yours in Fitness,
P.S. Here's the new workout program that launches today. This will make you feel like you're ready to jump into the Octagon ;)
