I’d always heard that once you start working out and living a healthier lifestyle, you’ll have this magical burst of energy. With that, you’re supposed to be able to take life by the horns and do all of these magnificent things with your new found energy!
Cue the womp-womp.
Ever since I’ve started, I’m tired, irritable, and hungry ALL OF THE TIME.
What does that mean? My coveted “after hours”, from approximately the 8-12 are now MIA. As in, I’m usually asleep by 9, 9:30 at the latest and don’t get anything accomplished at night anymore. Even on my precious weekend nights!
This includes cleaning, crafting, blogging, cleaning, cleaning, cleaning, laundry, etc…
As in, I’m being a pretty crappy human and more importantly slacker wife. Is it bad when your husband is so tired of looking at the dirty floors that he cleans them himself?
I have no desire or energy to do anything anymore. Something has got to give. I’ve got to keep getting up early to go to the gym as I have zero motivation to go after work. Yet I can’t for the life of me stay up late. Weekends are spent running errands or doing chores and even then I do the minimal to get by just so I can go to bed.
I’m so tired of being tired. And just not being myself. I’ve got all these projects I want to do and just stuff that needs done, but all I want to do is go to bed. I hate it.
So that’s why the blog has been suffering. Also, work has been taking a toll on me lately and I just haven’t had a lot of extra optimism to go around and sprinkle in blog land.
Aren’t you glad you came by for this depressing post today?
In addition, I’m still stuck in the 145-148 lb range. I made a personal goal with myself that I want to get to 135. As an incentive, David said he'll be giving me a nice chunk of change from for a shopping spree when I hit it. In the meantime though, a lot of my go-to work pants looks like I have a load in the back and are saggy in the waist. Not a cute look and definitely brings me down a notch in the feeling great category. However I’m just not excited to buy pants at this size because I still want to lose some more weight.
First world problems I tell ya.
Any who, most is well with me I’m just tired of being an all-round slacker!
Any tips or advice for how to get over the tiredness and get some motivation back in my life?!
Something to note too, I couldn't donate blood this past go-around because my iron was too low. I even let them prick me twice to double check it. I'm an every 8 week regular donater (sp?) so I was rather bummed. Since then, I've been loading up my mason jar salads with lots of leafy greens but I haven't felt any effect of it. Perhaps I'm encroaching on having an iron deficiency? Who knows!
