Looking Up....?

I feel a bit better, mentally today. Hopefully this means I'm slowly working my way back to "normal." I hope to be there by the weekend. We shall see.  I still have my moments, but things aren't nearly as bad as they were yesterday, Monday, or Sunday evening. Maybe things are starting to look up....

However, now I am sick. It's just a cold and I had a feeling it was coming but thought maybe not. So NOW on top of already being mentally exhausted, I'm feeling physically tired. Seriously, can't a girl catch a break!? I know things aren't that bad and part of it, I should be able to fix with my own thought processes and such. However, the cold is making me even more cranky. Blah.

I did manage to workout yesterday... I did some Turbofire. I know I didn't push as hard as I usually do but at least it was something. I just didn't seem to have the energy to put into it yesterday. It was hard to do anything at all and took a while to get my butt off the couch. But I did it. I burned some calories and got some exercise. That's what counts.

I wasn't in the mood to run on the treadmill and now that I'm sick who knows when I'll run next... Hopefully Saturday, at the latest! I'm secretly hoping tomorrow I will feel a bit better and ready to run. If not, I suppose I can wait. I just want to feel well enough to run...I really don't think that's asking too much. I'm staying positive that this will be a fast cold that will disappear quickly. 

Today I will also be doing TF. I'll be doing the same HIIT workout as yesterday but instead of the sculpting workout, I'll do the toning one. I added extra cardio yesterday and I'm not sure if I will do that today or not. If I don't add that, I'll add the core workout. Either one would be good for me... Not a high burn if I don't add the extra cardio, but that's okay. I probably shouldn't have too high of a burn anyway...

I still don't have much of an appetite and I know I'm not eating enough. It's just SO hard trying to force yourself to eat. I eat because I know I have to but I'm definitely hitting the minimum. It's been a struggle to reach 1200 daily calories. If not for wine on Monday, I would've been really far under. I'm trying... It's just taking time, like everything seems to.

Time..Timing... It's a tricky thing isn't it?  Life revolves around it... Sometimes it's good and sometimes it just plain stinks. Sometimes we want it to pass quickly and it doesn't. Sometimes we need more of it because we seem to run out of it. Sometimes we want things to happen on our time - and they don't. Time, time, time.... Time and I aren't the best of friends right now. There are good things about time, obviously... Free time, time with loved ones... I'm thankful for that. I'm just annoyed with the negative aspects of time at the moment.

I suppose I should get moving. My workout isn't going to do itself!!

Happy Wednesday!!! I for one am glad it is mid-week!
