The Readers’ Workouts meme is hosted at Joy’s Book Blog. This is a place to share exercise successes and challenges.
I have been going back and forth on whether or not to post. I’ve been working out fairly regularly the last month or so (3-4 times a week) and I am ever so slowly seeing physical results. But one of the biggest benefits to me for exercising in the past – the mental and emotional ones – are not coming this time around.
Some of my funk can be weather related; I normally enjoy the winter but this year it has been particularly cold and snowy and long and I want it to be over. Despite the regular exercise my energy level is low and my mood most days is even lower. I have little interest in anything – I didn’t count numbers but I think I read the least amount of books in February than any month in probably 5 years and I only wrote about one of them.
My head knows that there are things I can do to snap out of whatever I’m going through but the rest of me is finding it so.damn.hard.
