September was crazy. Two long road trips, followed by our church missions conference. I'm the missions secretary, so I'm heavily involved in the conference. I love it, but it always leaves me physically and emotionally exhausted. Part of the problem is that I'm an introvert, and even though I absolutely love connecting with our missionaries at the conference, the overabundance of "people time" and the corresponding lack of "alone time" takes a lot out of me.
Monday, I relaxed. Tuesday and Wednesday, I was back at work and really struggled to concentrate. Thursday and Friday i was home, fighting headaches and fatigue. Today I finally made a turn around! Went to the farmers' market and came home with radishes, beets and 30# of carrots. Yes, 30#! It was too good of a deal to turn down - we'll be eating carrots in everything for awhile! I felt energetic all day and got lots of laundry and cooking done.
So what about the rut? Well over the past month, I have done very little tracking. I'm either too busy or too lazy. I've every good intention of getting back on track in October and really working to shed some pounds, but I find I just don't want to do it. I'm feeling stubborn and cantankerous about it. Maybe it's not so much a rut as an extended tantrum!
So where do I go from here? Do I cut myself some slack after a crazy month, or give myself a swift kick in the back side and just do it? At least I didn't gain any weight in September, but it's time to start losing again.
