Some days are just difficult

Tuesday, April 03, 2018

I try to be a voice of inspiration, but some days it is so hard when I can't even motivate myself. I have had a lot going on lately, and getting back into the rigorous routine I had last year has been an up-and-down battle since the winter holidays. I keep looking at the calendar and thinking about summer break, when I will have a few months respite from lectures and grading and staying up till 2 am just to keep up. but it seems so far away. I want to get back into the same workout routine I had last year, but it seems just as I really get back to it, I get hit with another illness. I had grand plans to do an Olympic triathlon this year, but I am glad I set my first race in June to be just a sprint because I have doubts that I'll make it to Olympic this triathlon season, if ever. I keep trying to remind myself of just how far I have come, but some days it just doesn't feel nearly far enough.

I know I'm not alone. I know we all have these days. I am grateful for all I have. Just have to wait for the blues to work their way out of my system.

    You are most definitely not alone. I've been in a funk for quite a while now but there are good days too. Just remember that those good days can sneak up on you just as fast as the bad ones. It's important to be kind to yourself no matter what you've eaten or how you have exercised (or not exercised). You are more than your weight or your food intake.

    Dont worry about the grand plan. Do one thing at a time. Each step is a forward journey
