Gym Blog | Days 25-26

What a miserable, frustrating couple of days I’ve had.

I didn’t go to the gym on day 25. My husband switched his hours and worked a 20-hour double shift for some reason, so he was gone for most of the day, and all night. I stayed home with my kiddo, and tried to get some stuff done around the house, but I’ve been feeling really stressed out and shitty the last couple days, so really, not much got done. I managed to get some stuff done on Instagram for all the parties I do Instagram for, and revamped the Twitter and Facebook pages for my job, as well as create a ton of new graphics for posts. So, that’s good, I guess.

Yesterday was day 26. Since he had worked a 20-hour double and didn’t get home until 9:30 a.m., my husband slept the entire day, until around 5:00 p.m., which meant I couldn’t leave the house until after I put my son to bed. I was pretty eager to get out, because between him being an ass ever since the moment he got out of bed, and my son driving me nuts by asking me 1,000 questions every time I tried to do anything around the house, I needed a break from life. Also, I had stress-eaten way too many cookies and baby pickles the night before, after I chewed off my nails. Oops.

After that, I did 2 sets of 25 steps on the plyo box, standing side bends with the kettlebell, 2 sets of 25 penguin crunches, 2 sets of 10 leg raises, and… that’s it. I also somehow broke the armband case that a woman at the gym gave me, so I have no idea how I’m going to have my phone with me at the gym now. I tried putting it in my sports bra, but that is already pretty full of, well, breasts. I’m pissed.


I was hoping that going to the gym would put me in a better mood, but it didn’t. Not in the slightest. Blah.

Got back home, husband still wasn’t speaking to me for whatever reason, and was watching one of our shows without me, so I just closed myself in my room for the night, until I went to bed around 10:30. He never came to bed. Woke up to find him on the couch, and when we woke him up with our mere existence, he stormed off to the room and slammed the door. So, I can already tell that today is going to be just great.

I got an email from my boss last night, telling me what a good job I’ve been doing lately, and then he offered me an additional job within the company writing blogs for the website. As flattering as the offer is, I don’t think I can take it. He offered to add an additional 3 hours to my contract per week for research and writing, at my same rate of pay, but I don’t know if I’ll take it. Looking through all of the posts on the site, there haven’t been any new ones posted in nearly 6 months, and that’s probably because the topics covered can only be talked about so much… and they seem to have talked about them all already.

Also, without getting too much into the company I work for, the content written about on the website is either written about from a personal point of view, or from a professional point of view from someone within the company… and neither of those things I can really write from, because I can’t relate personally, and I don’t do that kind of work within the company.

So, I don’t know. It’s a nice offer, but I really don’t see how I can contribute at all. It kind of feels like it’s just being offered to me because no one else wants to do it, and I don’t like how that feels.

I have some social media posts to schedule and post today, but some of them I have no idea what to do about. I might have to put it off until next week.

I don’t know if I’ll be able to get to the gym today. Maybe during kiddo’s nap, but honestly, I’m currently a little ball of anger and frustration, and I don’t know if I want to be around other people today.

Anyway. This post was more personal than gym related, sorry about that. I’ll be discontinuing the “Gym Blog” title soon enough, so you won’t have to worry about being clickbaited into reading about my bullshit life anymore.

Thanks for reading. Feel free to check out all of my previous #gymblogs.
