Remember how I was telling you that my June was CRAZY-busy?
Well, guess what happens when CRAZY-busy is done.
My body finally got fed up with my constant running, commitments, exercise, stress, etc., and decided to quit on me.
Saturday I slept late, ran the kids out for a quick, but fun, outing with friends, ran one errand, and then proceeded to take a two-hour nap on the couch and other than forcing myself out for my run-streak run, spent the rest of the day and evening on the couch.
Sunday I woke up feeling nauseated, went back to sleep, moved to my couch when I woke up, cat-napped off-and-on all day, fought nausea, made myself workout anyway (because I couldn’t feel much worse), and went to bed by 9:30.
I didn’t cook all weekend. I ate things like peanut butter and raisins on celery, Pringle’s, pancakes and waffles; not my typical meal plan.
The collapse was so complete that I was even getting concerned that the ugly depression I have been fighting my way out of over the last few weeks was pulling me back down.
But this is kind of how it is for me. I run, run, run, go, go, go, and then I just can’t go anymore.
I know this about myself, but it still manages to surprise me when it happens.
I wish I was better at scheduling my time so this doesn’t happen, but some things in the schedule are out of my control.
I wish I was better at scheduling in down time so this doesn’t happen, but I am not.
So, in July, I am going to work harder at making down time and saying no to the unnecessary.
Wish me luck!
Do you struggle with any of these issues? How do you deal with them?
