Everything is butts

I’m in a foul mood today and very busy and honestly this post would be mostly whining if I let it go on so I’ll keep it short. Today was meant to be a back-to-lifting day but that didn’t work out so instead it was 45 minutes of cardio, a mile of running and then the rest on the elliptical. My back held up okay, though it’s still twingey.

The reason I didn’t lift was because of something I haven’t mentioned here before: in another foul mood a couple weeks ago, I lost my temper and bashed on the counter with my fist– and did something nasty to my pinky joint. I can move it fine and it doesn’t hurt in most situations but holding a bar up is excruciating. I didn’t know this until I tried it today. So no lifting.

(My partner has a name for these outbursts, ‘hulking out’. I hate them. I especially hate when I break something, or myself. It just becomes a reminder of how terrible I am.)

    OMG girl, you are not terrible. Terrible is putting that fist on your partner instead of the counter.

    I remember one time I was SO RAGEFUL I dashed into the garage and SCREAMED as I smashed up a bunch of innocent clay pots with a pry bar. It was AWESOME. I’m not proud of it, but sometimes an emotion is so strong you can’t just quietly dissipate it. Definitely it’s better to find a more constructive outlet, but sometimes you do what you have to do…. hope your pinky is better soon.

    Not terrible, just fully human like us all.

  3. Agreed, not terrible, just human. And besides, I’m taking the title as a reference to “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” so you get so many points for that! “And just the one shoe”

    Give it some time to heal (and maybe see a doctor about the joint).

      Actually… you know the song Everything Is Awesome from the lego movie? Around here we sing it, “Everything is butts/Everything is butts when your butt is a butt/Everything is butts/When your butt is a butt” I’ve never seen Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt…

      • The night before a race this year, my running friend and I watched The Lego Movie, so when we passed each other near the turnaround, we high-fived and shouted “SPACESHIP!!” and then had to explain what we were doing!

    I agree, you’re human. Emotions need an outlet sometimes, and while that may not have been the *best* way to do it (ouch) it’s better than many alternatives. Be gentle with yourself. You’re not terrible.

      Thanks, this is comforting. Sometimes I feel like a rage monster and am sure no one else ever feels that way, but they probably do :)
