There is something going on that I can't quite put a finger on.

Being that I prefer cardio over ST, I typically start ST with a bad attitude. (What a confession!) Thankfully, however, the attitude turns into a happier one as I get into it and then before I know it, I'm pushing hard because I *want* the burn. In the end, I feel really really good and I'm very happy that I worked out.

Today, however, I started with my bad attitude and it *stayed*. I was very excited to use my new ball to do my crunches, but - maybe it's the extra movement - I got pretty nauseas and cut my reps short. I tried to get through some of my other exercises - giving me a pep talk through it all - but I am still unenthusiastic. As I type this, I'm actually halfway through but I'm considering calling it a day - something I NEVER do!

I wonder if this has to do with my complete exhaustion yesterday. I've been pretty stressed and stretched with planning, cleaning, entertaining and cooking for a bunch of my in-laws, which was a lot of work for a gal like me who is used to cooking for 2. I woke up yesterday morning unable to get up and out of bed. I ended up staying in bed all day, skipping workouts and making good friends with my television. This is not me. And now, all I can think of is crawling back into bed and vegging out until DH gets home.

I don't know what's going on but what I do know is: 1) this too shall pass and 2) I need to listen to my body and rest.

And so, the mystery shall remain.

P.S. I should note that I was VERY enthusiastic during my cardio this morning. I was myself then! It was after that when I started crutchin my energy levels with caffeine. Argggh.
