Doldrums.. I has them..

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Colloquially, the "doldrums" are a state of inactivity, mild depression, listlessness or stagnation.

The word is derived from dold (an archaic term meaning "stupid") and -rum(s), a noun suffix found in such words as "tantrum".

That's an apt description of me and where I've been since mid-week last week.
Eating for crap.
Only moving when I've had to (as in no intentional fitness to speak of)
Sleeping horribly
Aching hurtfully

This too shall pass, but man'o'man it sucks while I'm suffering through.
What's that?
Why yes, I do know, I'm in control and decide what and how and when and all the rest. It's not a priority at the moment. It will be, again, sometime soon I hope. I need to keep charging on, get back to running when this damnable heat moves on, and get ready for my 5K in August and 10K in September and 13.1 in October.

I have stuff to do!

    I've been where you are and if you just stay connected with Spark like you are, you will get back to where you want to be. For now, do what you can. My new saying for myself is, "It is what it is." I refuse to beat myself up for the choices I make, even if they're not the ones I want myself to make, such as with food and exercise. The nicer you are to yourself, the better you'll feel and the sooner you'll want to get back on track.

    I just had to laugh as I so understand where you are coming from with the stupid tantrum! And it beats crying. Today is John's birthday.

    Sorry to hear that you are in such a downward spiral, Bailey. You are still staying connected here, which is super important, and I'm glad that you are sharing.

When your in the valley of the peaks and valleys of life, it sucks-- but it means that a peak is coming. Life doesn't flat line, you will get back there through your own tenacity, and life will move you to new highs.

Short, small shift down-- to a rocket up. You can do this.

    Keep plugging away... each step in the right direction is a step away from the problem.
