I'm tired today. I feel like I'm always tired.
In any case, I'm giving myself permission to take a week off from work and just wallow in the nothingness for a while. After all the stress of the end of March, I felt like I could use the rest.
I'll get back to real life next week. For now, however, it's nice to simply rest.
I don't think we do enough of it. Rest is so important.
Also, I was wondering about my inability to either lose inches or gain strength despite all the training I've been doing. I think I'm going to start tracking everything and then head to a nutritionist. There has to be a reason I'm not seeing results, and I'm determined to find out what it is. Chances are, it's food related. I spent most of my adult life chronically under-eating (less than 900 calories a day), and wrecking my metabolism. I have no idea what a healthy amount of food is, and especially not for my level of activity.
Also, running season is coming, so maybe that will help with the slimming down, at least (not the strength, but oh well). The plan is to run home from work on nights I don't have martial arts training. It's just over 5kms from work to my house, so I'd be going on a 5km run at least twice a week. Maybe that'll help.
I was supposed to start the running yesterday, but in what I can only consider to be a grand conspiracy against me, there was a snow storm.
I'm off to spent more time day dreaming. The Third Prince is still be written, even if I don't put my fingers on the keyboard.
