Well, it’s been a while since I’ve been here on Invigorating Self-Esteem, couple weeks I think. Just started getting into the school routine again, on top of working just about full-time and planning my wedding. Haven’t had much time to spare, even on my days off from school and/or work. I can barely keep up with myself!
Stress has gotten the best of me… I have been up all night due to stress, cried, been easily irritated or pissed off, and completely and utterly tired. Also, been sick A LOT! Getting over a cold, have had vomiting pretty frequently. My body and mind are just exhausted. Even my exercising has been slacking. I’ve only really been finding time to exercise maybe three times a week? And my workouts are short. Maybe just a run, or a short swim, and that’s just about it. Recently, I reduced my hours at work to part-time, hoping that I can somehow make time for myself in all this chaos. Maybe even be able to do a little strength training during my workout days. I feel low on energy and that I haven’t been progressively getting better in my runs (by the way, last week, I PRed on my run: 4.8 miles in 44:38, which is the longest and fastest I have ever run!). Even though I kicked ass on a single run, I feel out of shape.
Really need motivation from my fellow runners and fitness bloggers! How do I keep going? Lately, in order to have time to relax for myself, I have been wanting to take that time from my exercise since that’s the only time I do have to myself.
