Bad Day

Aug 26

I cried during my workout yesterday.  My performance was horrific.  Most likely because I was crying.  Then, I got on the rower to complete the workout, with hopes of making myself feel better, and  I cried more.  Snots, runny make-up, ugly-cry-face–the works… I’m not sure why I cried.  I was tired.

Jul 06

“Children learn what they live“. Last week, I was working out in the back room, and there was a child of one of our adult clients passing her time in the same room.  We exchanged our greetings and each went about our own business. Without any concern for what I was doing, she began to write a […]Continue Reading
