Ugh.

Lately, I haven't had the desire to log on and write. I have told myself, many times, that I will write a Sunday post about goal setting...and then Sunday passes and I have nothing to say. I actually have things to say. I have posts saved and I have notes in my email for longer posts. I've written posts in my head several times over. But when it comes to sitting down and to writing...just meh.

Life has been a struggle lately, even though there are many good things happening. It's myself who is being neglected. Hours spent lying on the couch, eating junk food, playing games on my iPhone, trying to talk myself into doing something else, but not managing to move. So I came up here to write this, and it's not much. But I looked at my blog the other day and noticed how long it has been since I've written.

I do like this blog and I do enjoy writing and I do have posts ready to go and things are happening but there is something missing inside of me right now.

  1. It has been a some time since you wrote something. Life can be hard, and you don't need me to tell you that. We all just keep chugging along, either deciding to be happy, deciding to be sad, with bad or good things happening to us and all around us. Hope that you find the inspiration to write.l actually felt like this about my blog a lot this past year, but I think that it's normal because life just happens to all of us. -Jess L

    1. I think some of it is how little I've run since the marathon. It's still cold and snowy here all the time, and that is very tiring. But I think I'm going to start a 365 days of running streak on March 1! If only for a mile a day, I want to run every day for a year. I'm also planning a detailed schedule of things I need to do. I like structure and I think it'll help me.

    2. You know what? That is some interesting insight. They say that depression or getting down can be normal after running a marathon. And I've been sad lately, mostly because I haven't been able to run like normal because of my injury. I just want to get back to running. For me, it releases those feel-good endorphins and is an automatic mood booster, so I know what you mean! And running always helps me when things are shitty. =)

    3. Maaayyybbbeeeee... I will look into that. I think it's a combination of not running the distances but also just not wanting to get out in the cold. I wonder what is the point of suffering through freezing temperatures if I am not preparing for a race. Maybe if the weather were a little less hardcore, I'd be motivated to get out. I don't know. Maybe the weather is an excuse. It's hard to tell.

  2. Hey friend, I feel your pain lately. It's been exceptionally hard to motivate myself to do anything lately. Bleh, blah. Hard to sleep, hard to focus. I'm sensing a break-through, finally. For one after mulling it over I think I'm determined to go back to school for journalism/photo-journalism. :D Anywho, feel free to text me any blah feelings, maybe we can start inspiring each other to get moving again.

    2. Yay :D I'm going to go back to Florida State College Jacksonville (where I dropped out of) for Journalism. Maybe Journalism with a minor in Photo Journalism? Y'know, just realized I should write a post on this... haha
