I choose happiness

What a difference a few hours and a change of attitude can make. I was so mad and grumpy and whiny last night, but I made the decision that when I went to bed it would end. I would wake up and I would be happy. So I woke up this morning and felt pretty good. I went to Crossfit for the couples throwdown even though I didn't have a partner. I figured I would do the workout alone if I had to. I quickly found a partner though and all was good. The first WOD was: 200m run/row, push press then 200m run/row, double unders then 200m run/row, back squats. One partner would run while the other did the movement.

We found out last week th…
