Slo Mo Day

Ever have one of those days when no matter how hard you try you just can’t seem to go any faster or get away any sooner? I am having one of those days today. No matter that I got out of bed at 5.30am with the intention of getting to the gym by 6.15am – I didn’t even get out the door until after 6.30am – and I had packed all my bags the night before. Then at the gym I tried, really tried, to work through my reps and sets but it seemed to take forever and so any idea of getting to work by 8.15am flew out the window. In fact, it was probably 9am before I managed to make it to my desk.

Maybe it’s the weather (its still very wet, grey and miserable), maybe its because it’s the end of the working week or maybe its just because my batteries are running low. Or maybe, its sabotage…..all day yesterday I resisted those yummy Haighs choc coated caramel balls sitting on the table behind me at work but by 5pm when I was here by myself, those damn balls began talking to me. I swear they were whispering “eat me, eat me” behind my back and whatever willpower I had left just crumbled. Ok I‘ll have just one, that will do, well maybe two. But then that would leave 2 left and I will only eat them tomorrow so I may as well eat them now – so I did. When will I ever learn that I will never be happy with just one chocolate, unless its one packet or one bar! So maybe it’s the chocolate that’s slowing me down!

I was planning on running at lunchtime but judging by the gloom outside my window I don’t think that will be happening. This means that I’ll be running both Saturday and Sunday. Oh well, at least I can manage a sleep-in on both those days and still run.

As for the house renovations – I will post some photos as soon as I get organised. Promise!

Today's Affirmation: I have made a choice to be happy. :-)

Now I feel like chocolate :-)

My strategy for those days is just get through the end of the day, hot bath Pj's and start again the next day :-) Oooh you could throw in a chocolate too!

Sorry if I took all the good-day Karma and left you with none :(

I would be rather partial to choc coated caramel balls too. Sounds very yummy. I am sure it was the weather that made you feel the way you were today, CJ. It was just that kind of day. There's a forecast for better weather over the weekend.

ever stop to think that it wasn't enough chocolate?

Hilda said...

What a temptation for you! But still don't blame the chocolate, is should be the weather as you said. Still there are days like that: slow motion!

Like your "Thought For The Day"

Love the affirmation.

You know, I take Friday's off the gym as it is always my Slo Mo day.
