Even though I finally got a job (more on that later) and start on Monday, I’ve been in quite the funk this week. You know, the usual stuff – I haven’t been sleeping well, I feel like a fat cow, and I have ZERO motivation. I haven’t been running or sewing or eating right. Most day I just want to crawl back into bed after a couple of hours and some days I’ve done just that. But enough is enough!
Monday I start my new job and I’m going to use that as a jumping off point for the next chapter in my life. What does that mean exactly?
- Run, run, RUN! (aka MOVE) I made a training plan and I plan to stick to it. My new “office” is right by a beautiful shaded lake, so I plan to run around said lake pretty much everyday before I come home. If I run right after work it will delay my trip home (which will help me miss some traffic) and since I’ll have all ready run when I get home I won’t have to worry about losing motivation and sitting on my butt.
- Eat Better! I’m not sure what my schedule is going to look like yet, but getting back to work will definitely help with the eating issues. Since I’ll be up and moving around, at least if I’m not eating great I will be MOVING instead of sitting on my butt. I’m going to try and bring my lunch most days. I can plop myself down under a tree by the lake and just chill with a salad or something. Enough of this horrible eating that has been going on around here lately. I wouldn’t call it emotional eating… its more of a “eat whatever the heck I want because I’m not motivated enough to care.” It sucks.
- Craft MORE! A couple of weeks ago I was a sewing machine. It was AWESOME! But due to my lack of motivation this week it just hasn’t been happening. I haven’t sewed in about a week (even though I have an apron all cut out and ready to go). I tried to scrapbook earlier this week and even though I finished two pages I was so frustrated by the end of it that I just said “f- it” and left the room.
