I have been extremely tired and am lacking in energy. It has gotten worse since last time.
It sucks – I am experiencing pain in my lower back and sciatic like pain in my leg – this is a direct result of not doing any strength training or mobilisation work. My overall productivity continues to decrease and I am more easily distracted.
It has been difficult trying to manage my emotional state – it is exhausting having to consciously try and be positive all the time.
New things I’ve been experiencing: my pre-menstrual symptoms have worsened considerably both physically and emotionally, in addition my craving for chocolate has intensified (which I never really get).
I am finding myself operating like I am under a blanket of fog. But what I REALLY miss is the social aspect of working out!
There is a camaraderie that is built when you are working out with someone; you share a common goal, you share each other’s pain and struggles. There is someone there to motivate you and in return you do the same.
So yeah I miss hanging with my workout buddy ….
So many people have said to me ‘wow, what have you been doing with the extra time?’
My answer: nothing.
Here’s the weird/cruel thing – I do have more time on my hands, and you would think that I would be using it productively but I’m NOT because I can’t be f%&ked!
There is a direct correlation between my new-found ‘I can’t be bothered’ state and not exercising.
