Meh…!

Friday, August 10, 2012 Permalink

I have an entire blog post written for today which only requires an edit.

But, quite frankly I’m not in the mood.

I’m feeling rather blah. I apologise for that. I’d usually fake upbeatedness; or write some lengthy piece about my inner angst and overanalyse my life to death.

ehBut… like I said, I’m not in the mood.

I should be on top of the world. It’s Friday morning and as we have a public holiday next Wednesday and my mother is about to visit I’m taking a 5-day weekend. On top of that I’ve managed to make it to the gym for two (generally-disliked) cardio sessions this week despite my injury in addition to my walk last Sunday (and I hope to make it to the gym at lunch today again).

But, my stomach feels huge (and looks it too given the reflection I was confronted with each time I’ve gotten into the elevator at work over the past few days). I feel constantly full and bloated. I haven’t been binge-eating, but… I just don’t know. I’ve been overdoing the carbohydrates and I don’t feel healthy.

I don’t mean to be a drama queen, but it’s my posting day and rather than not post I figured I’d just be honest with how I am feeling.

But it’s okay. Cos, this….

    I don’t see anything wrong with your last post. You’re just being honest. Sometimes, you just need to vent. Don’t edit your feelings. (((hugs))) And I happen to know a thing or two about guilt and being too hard on yourself. 🙂

    Please don’t apologize for your feelings dear Deb…and I totally second what Sick Chick said. We ALL get the blahs!

      Oh, and I just this moment noticed that it’s tomorrow there…how weird for it to be Thursday, August 9 as I write this and it’s Friday, August 10 there!

        Indeed. I always chuckle on Friday night as I’m going to bed, seeing all of the tweets from the other side of the world from those glad it’s Friday. (Of course I feel differently Monday when I’m back at work and you’re still on your weekend!)

    Love the attitude that tomorrow is a second chance.

      I know, I’ve had that quote sitting there for a while. It’s lovely.

    I learned a few years ago that a person doesn’t have to work out as many times per week as many people think. A very intense elliptical session (15 minutes) as fast as I can go (6.5 miles/hr or faster with incline and resistance) 1 time per week, very heavy weightlifting (currently sets of 10 of 135 pound bench presses, many dips, many sets of heavy lat pulldowns, pushups etc…) 1 time per week for 2 hours, and the most diverse and hardest yoga I personally can do (many versions of leg extensions, down dog, down bow, up bow, standing backbends, crow, warrior/triangle vinyasas, balancing poses etc…) for 2 hours is all I do each week and it keeps me in very good shape.

    I used to exercise much more, but I didn’t get in much better shape for those extra hours. So taking off a day here or there might actually help you do better for the next exercise day.

    Plus, your back cyst removal/infection might still be bothering you. I remember being frustrated going to the gym and feeling lazy for what I accomplished, while not knowing that I had a 102 degree fever. I believe that people’s bodies often quietly tell them important messages that we routinely ignore.

      Marion, my back is finally less-sore. I can lie on it now without pain and pretty much stretch it with limited soreness.

      And… I’m definitely for efficient workout sessions. My sessions this week have been short cardio interval sessions. I love the strength and yoga work you do. I need to increase my strength work in particular… when I’m all better!
