A term I recognize when running. If I go out too fast in a race or run I don't have the energy to keep up that pace and find that I loose ground. I tire, my energy level drops and I fall off my "pace".
It can happen in my day to day things as well. I get hung up on doing and doing and not realizing that I am not pacing. I use up my energy and next thing I know I'm in a panic. I'm frustrated, anxious, not realxed. Today was such a day. Way over whelmed. It was good to take a step back, to admit my condition, and then to regroup my thoughts. I tackled one goal and got it accomplished. I was also able to get a few other things done. I didn't reach for the extra food that I often do.
I did pass on my evening run with the running group. I just didn't have it in me to go. I could site the weather, but to be honest I just didn't want to do the running.
My goals will be a more energetic person in the morning.
Remember to take the breaths I need, plan, relax, and chill. It all doesn't have to be done today, or all at once. Little chunks of time will get me to my goal.
Here I am at the end of my day and much more relaxed than a few hours ago. That is good.
