This summer has been just plain bizarre. The good, bad, and the ugly have all come around in a weird pattern that has just drained me. I feel disconnected with myself right now and to an extent with the people around me. I took a little bit of time to unwind and then, of course, back to reality and something else happens that you don’t expect.
Honestly, I am ashamed to say that I have not had a solid run in a couple of months. Ouch. Yes, I notice a difference…I’m obviously not as fit as I was and probably more stressed. I definitely needed some time off because I was burned out…this much time however was not warranted!
Starting tomorrow I am putting on the runners again. I figure I’ll just take it one step at a time and see what happens. The crappy diet I’ve also adapted with the lack of exercise will stop and my normal diet will be reinstated. (Not an actual diet – I just mean my regular eating habits.) Hopefully I’ll begin to feel human again soon.
I’m crossing my fingers that the end of the summer will go a bit better but if not I’ll keep rolling with the punches and try to not get knocked out by them instead. 😉
