It's just one of those days

Ever had a day where it feels like everything goes wrong? 

Yesterday felt like a "Break Stuff" kinda day. 

 I woke up in tons of pain and ended up calling out sick from work.  

I headed to the first available appointment at the doctors office. After an hour of milling around with the germ infested folks, I was sent home with anti-inflammatory pain medication, and ice pack, and instructions for light stretching and lots of rest for the next few days. Thankfully, nothing was torn. Just a simple, yet very painful strained calf muscle (which i obtained at the hands of a poor trainer at the gym). That's really getting me off track for my first 5k prep and my new-found gym dedication.

I tried to cook dinner last night. 

I tried to make a green bean recipe that I made a dozen times before and it turned out watery and flavorless. 

I tried to BBQ chicken and only succeeded in catching it on fire and starting a grease fire on the gas grill. 

I tried to make an awesome sounding recipe for homemade goat ricotta cheese and succeeded in only making hot salted goats milk {GAG}.

I hate days like that. 

It really makes me feel awful about myself and my abilities and my goals. 

Hugs from Dave made it mostly better, but today I'm still feeling a little down. 

I'll get over it. 

Just because I failed one day, doesn't make me a failure. 

Today is a new day.

 I couldn't have got hurt if I wasn't at the gym. 

I couldn't have ruined dinner and the other recipes if I wasn't so dedicated to eating healthy and had just had Dave pick up fast food on his way home.

So today I got to sit at work with ice packs on my legs, took frequent stretch breaks and walks around the office.  

I'm being forced to take a couple days to relax.  

I've been go go go ever since I started feeling better. I'm trying to make up for lost time.

Sometimes I think we have days that feel like failures to slow us down and regroup and focus on where we should be headed in our life.
