A Bad Morning

by Meghann on June 12, 2014

Do you ever have those mornings that just kind of suck? Today was one of those mornings.

I woke up in a terrible mood. Instead of feeling rested and ready to start another beautiful day, I felt stressed and agitated. I wanted to stay in bed, but I’d missed CrossFit the day before and really wanted to get to the box.

It happened so fast, I almost didn’t believe it. A car came out of nowhere, there was impact, and my heart leapt forward. There was damage, but it is repairable. There were tears, but no pain.

I never made it to CrossFit. I never even made it a mile from my house. I crawled back in bed with Derek and cried on his shoulders. The tears came and it felt like I was releasing every bit of tension I had in me. I wasn’t just crying about the vehicle, it was everything that’s been weighing on my shoulders. I needed that cry, I’d been holding it in for far too long.

I had cereal with Cool Whip while I spoke with the insurance company. Everything’s better with Cool Whip.

It’s wasn’t the end of the world – just a bad morning. I had my mini pity party and now it’s time to move on. Tomorrow is a new day. Tomorrow will be better.

Is it the weekend yet?

Ugh, that sucks! I’m sorry for the rough start. Sometimes it just takes one thing to unleash the stress floodgates of everything. I hope you feel better, and everything works out.

Ugh! That is me this morning (awake 2 hours in the middle of the night, couldn’t find any clothes that fit (37 weeks pregnant), stressed about FMLA/finances, etc). I have a training this morning and am praying they have donuts. Do I need sugar to feel better? NO, but does help a little bit? Yes! (I am drinking a green smoothie right now – gotta keep the baby healthy!)

Car accidents are so scary! Glad you are okay! Maybe waking up in such a bad mood was a sign from the universe to stay home and stay safe.

I’m with you, sister. Sometimes it feels like the weight of the world rests on our shoulders. I know too many strong, caring, amazing ladies who carry more than their fair share of the load. Hang in there, we are all in this together.

Oh my gosh, I’m so sorry to hear this! Accidents are terrifying but the main thing is that YOU are okay. And sometimes we just need to let it all out, I always find if I bottle things up too long they end up overflowing eventually… Hope you are okay.

Oh no! How scary! I’m happy to read you’re ok. I’m the same way sometimes, with the horrible mood and the crying. I usually feel much better about 12 hours later, so I hope you’re feeling better today!

One time I got a flat tire on the freeway and started crying when I called my mom to tell her. Keep in mind it was not a blowout, I was not on my way to anything, it was the middle of the afternoon with pleasant temperatures, and on a rather empty freeway (so absolutely nothing for me to freak out about). My mom was more concerned that I was calling her and not AAA. I just needed some comfort, and to cry!!

I hope you have a totally awesome weekend with whatever you end up doing (even if it’s just hanging out at home!). Accidents are not fun – I’ve been in 3. They’re crappy. Super crappy in fact. But it gets better! **BIG, BIG, hug and lots of well wishes!**

This is freaky. I had a wreck last October, on my way to a 6am crossfit class, and the morning of a Friday I was supposed to go out of town and spend the weekend with my friend Clayton. My car was totaled. It’s been an interesting year, I was ironman training and sleep deprived during that time. I finally had my ironman 70.3 on June 1st, with my first ironman 140.6 on 8/24 in Louisville. Then I got a massive pulmonary embolism on Saturday. Ironman dehydration paired with the 6 hour drive, paired with an in diagnosed genetic predisposition. Just got out of hospital today, dead determined to get breathing again in a week, training again in two, and getting to ironman in 9 weeks. Docs said that if it wasn’t for IM training and my fitness, I’d have been dead Sunday, no doubt. Instead I was on a 50 mile winded bike ride, with a PE, haha. Didn’t get diagnosed until Wednesday. Heart rate was 47, and BP was 104/66, even when extremely stressed, my doc said I should have been 130 pulse, 150 blood pressure. He said Ironman saved me!
