I woke up this morning feeling pretty pissed off.
This was due to the cumulative effect of a number of little things (mostly self-inflicted):
I had a little too much to drink last night, not enough to induce a hangover, but just enough that I didn't feel my usual bright and breezy self this morning,
I got a letter containing a thinly veiled threat from my ex husband solicitor yesterday,
I realised today was the end of my, admittedly long, summer holidays,
And also there were a number of jobs I had been determined to tackle over the summer that still remain untouched.
All of these things and others too trivial to mention, combined to subdue my mood.
So I wasn't really feeling up to my usual Friday morning visit to the gym.
However, I forced myself out of bed and down to the leisure centre.
15 minutes on the exercise bike, 5km run (27m 30s), 10 mins on the stepper, and finally 10 mins of weights and stretches = completely knackered and pouring with sweat!
Not a pretty sight!
But the end result was worth it, my mood has completely changed. I came home, phoned my solicitor, showered, chatted to the kids and had a coffee and a banana and now I'm full of beans (well banana and coffee actually) and ready to attack some of those unfinished jobs.
And best of all, 2lbs lighter on the scales than last Friday!
