Winter Blahs

It’s January and I’m freezing. I am so over this winter and I am starting to get seasonal affective disorder. The only thing that is getting me through this is working out. When I am having a bad day, it keeps me sane. Channeling my frustrations in this way has helped me beyond my highest expectations. There is just something about putting your headphones on, kicking butt in your workout, and forgetting about your worries for the day.


I will be honest. Mentally I have not had a good week but my workouts have rocked and I feel so great about the progress my body has made in the last month. Coincidence? I think not. Some of my best workouts are when I am mad and upset, which seems to be more days than not lately. At least I am benefiting from it! Instead of moping around and trying to control things I cannot, I am grabbing the bull by its horns and making myself a better person – both physically and mentally.

Speaking of changing. Yes, I have changed physically over the last year but what I am most proud of is how much I have changed mentally. That was my biggest success. I am now living for me and not worrying what others are doing or thinking. And I tell you what – it feels great.

How do you channel your anger or frustrations?
