I started this blog because I wanted to give the blogging world an honest voice. I felt that too many bloggers only showed you their awesome workout plans and their amazing recipes. Lets be honest in real life things don’t always work out as planned.
Today is one of those let’s be honest posts…
This weekend I wasn’t feeling that great. Even after an amazing date night Friday at my favorite place, Morimoto (Sooo good!) I just wasn’t feeling quite myself by Saturday morning. As we were headed out to Belmont, the third leg of the triple crown races I just felt frazzled. Luckily I was able to pull myself out of the funk for most of the day at the races. Going to Belmont is one of my favorite things to do every year. Plus, I even had money on the winning horse, Palace Malace! Unfortunately by the end of Saturday night I just fell apart.
Combined with all the little things that were seeming to go wrong, Sunday I had a kitchen fail. Seriously I hate it when I fail in the kitchen. Not sure why but it’s so much worse than failing at a workout or something at work! Probably because of the money I’ve spent on ingredients and the time I’ve invested planning. I am working on a vegetable butter spread and I couldn’t get my food processor to work. I tried my vita-mix but the mix is too small to really blend in the big vita blender. It smelled so good in my kitchen, but without a way to puree the “butter” I was stuck with wasted ingredients. My before photos looked so good! I’ll have to give it a shot again as soon as I fix my food processor.
Luckily sitting here writing Sunday night I’m feeling much better. A big thank you goes out my boyfriend and my mom. I wish I didn’t stress about the little things in life so much. Oh well, I’m not perfect:) END RANT!
On a positive note I had some great workouts this weekend. I enjoyed a 75 minute hot Moksha class as well as a killer Insanity workout. It feels good to be getting back into the workout zone. No work trips for a while now so it should be easy to get back on track.
How do you re-focus when things don’t seem to be going right?
