I didn't cook dinner very often.... so we went out to eat a lot and one evening ate some yummy soup from an asian restaurant called Pho. It was good I suppose, but I feel like the soup comes with lots of spices, veggies, sauces on the side and maybe I should have used them.....
My sons hair doesn't get combed...(but honestly I hardly ever comb it anyways, I just kinda like the crazy look).
One night I did actually end up making dinner but of course, didn't do the dishes.... When I woke up the next morning I came down and found this lovely Julia Child like jellied mess in my pot! YUK. It was the fat from the roasted chicken jellied with broth.
And then there is the laundry. These baskets were scattered throughout my house for the entire week. Luckily they are all clean but only 1/2 are folded and the rest just heaped together. I was so unmotivated that I didn't even bother to put the clothes away and what is folded, my husband did. I had nothing to do with laundry so much this past week.
Also, last week I only ran 32 of the 50 miles I had on my schedule and luckily, my long run (22) was ok. The rest of them were nothing to write home about.
So what in the world happened here!? Personally, I blame it on being a girl, (it was that time of the month.....lovely), and the fact that this marathon training is just burning me out. I was feeling burnt to the max. I didn't even care that I was sluffin' off my runs which is highly unusual for me. I am a pretty structured stubborn type and typically if something is on my running schedule, it gets done.
To combat the total loss of any energy I decided I was lacking iron and just some R&R. So after a few days of out of control nothingness I made myself a delicious high iron dinner with some lovely sweet potato carbs. I also bought myself some airborne and started taking it daily. I did this early on in the winter and felt it was helping me stay peppy so because I am in desperate need of some pepp, I stocked up =) (and I drank a diet pepsi....oopps, did I say that)
This week I am feeling much better and just starting to check all of the things off that I missed last week while trying to stay on task with what is on the Calendar this week. So far so good.
How often do you feel unmotivated?
Me, not too often, but when I do get that way, it is like I crawl into a hole and disappear.
What do you do to come out of it?
Does it typically interrupt just your workouts and or home life?
Heres to staying motivated =) -Jen
