Terrible moods

The past few days I have been in a terrible mood. There have been a few things going on around me that I'm not so happy about. 

I have not wanted to even workout. I've really just wanted to lay on my couch and hide from the world. I really don't have the option to hide from the world or miss a workout, so I've begrudgingly been going to do my workouts. 

Here's the good news though, working out always puts me in a better mood. Friday I was on the verge of tears before my workout, but laughing and smiling when I was done. 

Today when I made it to the gym I did not want to be there. I think I even said, "I don't want to be here. I'm too pissed off." Of course, I still stayed and did the workout, but I was ready to punch anyone who looked at me wrong. By the end of the workout my mood had shifted and I was laughing, smiling, and in a much better mood. 

It also helps that I have friends to talk to while I'm working out. It's nice to have people to unload on and still get in a good workout. 

Even if you are in a hate the world mood you should still go to the gym. You're going to be angry and you can focus that anger into your workout. By the end you will also be in a better mood; I promise. 


  1. It's crazy what working out can do for you. I felt so sluggish the other day and felt loads better after dragging myself to the gym. Just gotta have enough drive to get yourself there.

  2. I'm glad you were feeling a little better... I was a little worried about you at the beginning of the workout!

  3. Love this! A good workout is usually the perfect medicine for getting out pent-up anger. :) That's why I love running when I'm mad - every time I stomp my feet down, I'm letting go a little.
