First of all, I wanted to thank all of you for reading my blog. I have been loving all of the comments, suggestions, advice, and love you all have shared lately. It makes me so happy, and all I can do is smile! 🙂
These past few days, though, I have been in a huge work-out and eating rut. I have been tired, worn down, unmotivated, and starving all day long. I have been trying to do everything I can. I have been eating my fruits and veggies, getting a lot of protein, and listening to my body when I am hungry.
All of a sudden, though, no matter how much I eat, it isn’t enough! I don’t want to binge eat, but it seems like my body is telling me I should! And as for working out, my motivation is severely lacking. I have planned tomorrow to be a day of rest, but it has felt like pulling teeth to get through my workouts until then. Yesterday, I had to force myself to go to the gym. I promised myself that I only had to do a half an hour (and that’s all I got through). Today, the BF and I did our normal 11.5 mile bike loop around Shippensburg, and I had a really rough time with it. I have definitely been dragging!
I have also been having trouble staying asleep and often wake up exhausted. Am I stressed? That could be it. This summer has been chaotic and full of changes, so maybe it is all catching up to me. But, I have only worked 2 days in the past week, and I am not working again for another ten days. I just wish I were able to put my finger on what is wrong, because I definitely feel as though something is off.
I feel like this little boy (whose picture I found when I Googled “worn out”):
Have you ever felt this way? It’s like I just need a day to do nothing and let my body catch up with me. That’s what tomorrow is for. I am going to get up when my body wakes up, throw a load of laundry in, and then spend the rest of the day doing things that I want to do. The BF and I even have a date planned! 🙂
I will tell you all about our date soon!
Tell me about your weekend! Got anything good planned?
Has anyone else felt the same way as I do? How have you dealt with/overcome similar feelings?
