Unwanted life stressors
Friday, March 04, 2011
It has been awhile since I blogged or kept to my routine. It was going so well last summer/fall but since returning to school it has been difficult. Looking back at my logged exercise and my runs I was able to see when it all began to fall apart; when I started school. I now see the ill effects of not sticking to my health routine. Last month I was feeling the emotional effects of not taking time for myself. I was doing too much, stretching myself thin, and then a family tragedy sent everything spinning. I felt angry and depressed. I felt that I lost control over my life. This was going on too long and it needed to stop. Realizing that changes needed to happen I decided to return back to my runs and to spark people. I needed time away from my life commitments. I needed to take time to relax if I was going to be able to return back to my former self. Since being back (two weeks) I have felt the difference and I'm happy to say that I'm loving my runs again. I look forward to the time I have where I can ignore school, home, taxes, business, and being a mom taxi. :) Even better, I look forward to June. I will be finished school for good and will be able to enjoy the time for relaxation, runs, and family!
