Have you ever just woke up grumpy and you knew that you needed to avoid everyone and just stay home? Oh, that’s SO me today. I think I overtrained yesterday and today I’m sore, cranky and just waiting for somebody to say the wrong thing. Everything someone says to me I snap and I can’t help it. I feel pressure in my head and like a dark cloud over me. I try so hard to remain positive, but some days, I fail.
I remember the last time I felt like this, I lost a client. I’ll never forget, I walked into her house, and she flopped down onto the couch and said she just wasn’t in the mood to train today. That immediately ticked me off because the day of my appointments I send out a quick text, or I call and say I will see you at whatever time, please respond so I know we are good. I do that because I have had too many people get the days mixed up and say Oh I thought we were meeting tomorrow or you didn’t get my text about canceling today? So I cover all basis and give a reminder. Once you receive that reminder, you then can tell me something came up, or I’m not feeling well. You will still be charged unless you cancel 24 hours in advance. Anyway, she continues to say that she hasn’t stuck to the nutrition plan and she drank a little too much the night before. Now she is feeling bloated and dizzy. I pride myself on having patience, but I don’t like for people to waste my time.
So here I am getting back into my car after giving a long lecture on responsibility and parenting to a 50-year-old woman that is still hungover and have to drive her kids to practice in less than 2 hours. If I hadn’t of been so cranky that day the lecture would have gone a little more pleasant but it is what it is. I lost her as a client, and when she told her friends the story she left out a lot of details, but because of how I conduct business her friends knew she wasn’t telling the full truth. Never once did I bother rehashing details for anyone, I’m a either you believe me, or you don’t kind of girl.
Even on my crankiest of days, I’m truthful. I might be quicker to tell you how I feel, and the delivery might be stank, but I’m honest. So on this day, I choose to keep my cranky, sore muscle having behind home.
You could have chosen to read any blog but you chose mine and I’m honored.
