I find it fascinating how your feelings/mood changes so vastly each day, yesterday I was full of excitement, yet today I’ve felt quite weary. The last few nights’ sleep has been disturbed, when I wake up the bed covers are all over the place and I feel like I’ve moved around so much in the night. I’ve been sleeping longer as well as feel like my body is crying out for sleep/rest.

Not sure if this is to do with the shorter days/colder weather or just the combination of this and all the stress of the last couple of years that finally my mind is at its limit. Physically I don’t feel tired as I’ve not exercised consistently for weeks but mentally I’m done in.

One thing for sure next year I need to find a way of switching off, this is something I don’t seem able to do very well. In fact, the only two places that I can switch off is when I’m swimming in a very cold lake or doing high-intensity exercise as both involve me being completely present in the moment for a number of reasons yet right now I’m not interested in doing either. I know my motivation will come back, can’t say when but that’s ok as it will I know for sure as it always has and then I get into a proper groove with it.

So for now, I know I just need to ride out these feelings and let them do their thing.

I'm 40 something gal living in the beautiful county of Lincolnshire, England. I run my own business which is a rollercoaster of good times and bad times but it is what makes life interesting. I'm a self-confessed foodie, which some people might think is bordering an obsession, but a good obsession I would say. I am a fully qualified food technologist, nutritionist and personal trainer and use my skills and knowledge to keep striving to better myself in all areas of my life. Despite being dyslexic I love reading both fiction and non-fiction books and usually have four or five on the go at any one time. I enjoy keeping myself fit and healthy by regular visits to the gym as well as enjoying open water swimming and sometimes I'm brave enough to swim without a wetsuit. This blog is all about my life and adventures.
