I struggled to wake up this morning, but dragged myself out of bed and into the car, feeling tired and fuzzy-headed. I drove right past the entrance to the gym car park and had to do a U-turn at the next intersection, then an illegal right turn to get into the car park from that direction. D'oh!

It was dark and I was grumpy and it was cardio day, but I took a leaf out of Cathy's book and summoned up a smile and a Good morning! for the receptionist. No need to inflict my crankiness on anyone else.

Then I had to decide what to do. Yes, I'm fronting up to the gym with absolutely no plan half the time. LOL. Not my usual control-freak style, I know, but it seems to be working fine so far. As I was warming up on the treadmill, a voice in my head said HIIT, Body-for-LIFE style. I tried to ignore it - that shit is HARD.

But once an idea is planted, it's hard to avoid. So I HIIT it.

I had to talk myself through every set of intervals - as usual, my inner princess wanted to quit halfway through the first one. But I got it done, even if it wasn't my best-ever effort.

Funny thing: I'm wide awake now and not the least bit cranky. :) Sometimes the voices in my head are actually right.

BFL HIIT is always good for stopping a grumpy mood!
