That’s how I feel on this Monday. I woke up fine, I powered through my morning workout. I’m 15 days into a alcohol free month and on week 2 of working out. Today I feel really run down. I don’t know if I am catching a cold that my daughter developed over the weekend, but I feel like I’m dragging.
Anyone else do an alcohol free month? Does this sleepiness happen mid way through? Or is it just a Monday? Jeez. My weight was down and I was super happy. All weekend I watched what I ate and drank water, tea and coffee. I practically jumped on the scale this morning with excitement to find out I GAINED back a pound. Still less than where I started but still… Just ugh. Why is it so hard to lose weight and so easy to gain it? I keep thinking back to the last time I lost a lot of weight and I didn’t do it the healthy way, I basically starved. That’s not an option this time because I don’t want to do that again.
The corona virus is spreading all around us. People seem to be in either a full blown panic or blissfully naive. I think I am leaning more to the naive category at the moment. I know it’s serious. I know it’s fast spreading and there is no vaccine for it. What am I supposed to do? If nothing is shut down around me, I can’t just pull my kids from school and hunker down at home. No matter how much I wish I could. There is no state of emergency, there are no schools shutting down. I can’t just stop doing everything… I guess I will just try not to think about it and continue on.
My job is having a full staff meeting tomorrow. I have asked if it’s mandatory, it is. Which makes zero sense to me when everything else that would cause big groups of people to come together are being cancelled. We have electronics, why not use them? I’m trying to decide if I should call out tomorrow. Or I don’t know. I don’t like big groups as is and now it seems like even more of a terrible idea.
This week will be interesting if nothing else.
What about you? How’s your week looking?
