Do you ever get “tired”? I am not a fan of that word so when this happens to me, I call it the “funk”! I start to feel a bit out of sorts, not wanting to do anything. Anything includes work, cook, workout, be on my phone or computer. I simply feel the need to do nothing.
Nothing is strange to me as I tend to have plenty of balls in the air. But when this started happening to me a few years ago, I decided to honor it.
This funk started on Monday. I felt sort of numb. I powered through my day but when I got home, I did minimal stuff. Tuesday was a bit more challenging. I decided that when I got home, I would truly do nothing!
So I came home had coffee, chatted with my husband, fixed cauliflower pizza for dinner and pretty much vegetated for the rest of the night. Went to bed early too!
Today I feel back to normal. Ready to go and take on the day!
Do you honor these feelings or just keep going? I found for me that if I kept going, the funk lasted longer or I would get sick. When I started honoring it, I noticed that it did not stay as long and that I felt better when I would just let it happen and take care of myself. 🌸🌸🌼🌼
Perspective..today’s upper body was much better than Monday’s. I was able to go heavy when needed and that made me feel good. I didn’t do the circuits timed, but did them as reps instead. •
When realistically looking at my body after a couple of days, I realize it’s exactly where it was before I got sick. Maybe a little less defined, but not any larger than it was before. It’s just the strength that is missing. •
Yesterday was a two steps back day, and it was very frustrating. I was extremely tired, I was gagging up things I would rather not gag up. I tried to do lower body and managed C4 and one round of C5. But, I was getting a lot of texts and phone calls while doing it, and every time I go out of the app lately, it logs me completely out and it was seriously annoying that I just stopped. So, it became a mini rest day. Except I really needed it after Monday. Instead of full body, I’m doing the first three circuits of lower body tomorrow. •
So, I promise myself not to take anymore photos of my body and comparisons for the next two weeks. I need a break from worrying about it and just let the process do its damn job. Thanks for listening to me the last couple of weeks and all my worries.
Something is going on next week to keep me motivated (and occupied) that I’m excited for. 😁😁
