Apologies & Feeling Blue

Thursday, November 07, 2013

Apologies to the fall Starfish for going MIA and not contributing this week! I’ve had a hellacious week. I had a major deadline at work which was crazy stressful. And yesterday, I was in a do-loop with my boss. I was gathering information and every time I thought I had everything and had anticipated all the questions he’d ask, he’d come up with something I didn’t expect or know the answer to and I’d be scrambling to get the answer and get back to him. Which led to another round of questions, and invariably something new that I had to confirm. Around and around and around we went. I didn’t have time to get to the bathroom all morning, I missed lunch, and I was at the office until super late. So yesterday was an unintentional “free day” because I ate whatever I could as I ran around.

And on top of that I’ve been feeling really tired, rundown and generally a little blue. So it’s been a major effort to get workouts in. I have done a couple but most nights, I don’t feel like doing anything. So I’ve just sat on the couch. I think it’s time to see the doc and make sure there isn’t something medically wrong.

Anyway, I’m looking forward to things calming down over the next few weeks and a strong finish to my fall 5% challenge!

PS, did not mean for this to turn into a complaint about things not worth complaining about! #firstworldproblems!

    One day at a time--we can do this. You are WORTH it.

    I hope you get some rest and, like A_BIT_AT_A_TIME said, also a bubble bath or some other type of soothing self care. You deserve it.

    Work struggles are one thing that are seriously stressful for me, too, when they happen. I relate, I relate.

    Also, remember (although I HATE it when people tell ME this, but I'm going to do it anyway) that even ten minutes of exercise has benefits. Another thing I do is get dressed for exercise and tell myself, "I can quit after I do five minutes of working out." Inevitably I stick in there.

    I am pulling for you.

    STRESS! Yep, that should sum it up for you. I am soooo thankful that I don't work any more. I can't believe the stress you must be under at work! I don't think you need a doctor. I think you just need less stress. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hope next week is better. Definitely go to the doc and make sure there is nothing medically wrong.

    It sounds like a lot of challenges at work. Try to work on getting in more water and pushing for more sleep. The stress could be getting you. Hugs, Laurel emoticon

    I understand. "Tis the season for feeling blue it seems.... I've been experiencing it too, but know why. Probably nothing medically wrong, but it is worth it to be sure! Hopefully this deadline is behind you and you can get back into the groove! Wishing you well!
