I got an email this morning from my daughter, Stephanie, asking why no blog updates lately. I told her it was a combination of a couple of things. The least of the reasons was that I had a gain on Monday. It was 1 1/2 pounds and I wasn't expecting it but that didn't make me stop blogging. I just seem to be in a rut right now. I'm sure it has a lot to do with the weather and the blahs of winter. All it seems like I do is go to work and go home. We've been watching our budget since the start of this new year, so we don't even get that occasional meal out ... well, at least not like we used to. Last weekend we had no plans. It's funny when we were constantly on the go, I would give anything for a free weekend but yet when I get it, I'm bored to death. We were fortunate enough to watch Jacob and Gracie on Saturday night, so that did liv'n things up a little, but the work week just seems hum drum and I have no energy and no motivation.
I was so excited to start training for the C25K and this makes my third week but last week was tough as I'm having a problem with my leg. It didn't prevent me from training, however. In fact the leg doesn't hurt as much when I'm on the treadmill. It's just the after effects. The same thing happened last year about the same time and the end result was the shingles. I have no outbreak, so I'm thinking it's just the over stimulation of the nerve in my leg. Over the counter pain stuff seems to quiet it down so I keep going but it's annoying.
I need to stop procrastinating and do at least a couple of things every night to convince myself that I'm doing something worthwhile and that life is what you make of it. It can be boring or it can be active. I'm not a bear, I do not need to hibernate but I sure am ready for spring and it's gonna be awhile until it gets here so I might as well grin and bear it, huh?
