Confessions of a Girl on the Go
As you may have noticed, I haven't posted in a couple of weeks because I have been having a bit of a rest. Sorry, not sorry. Here's why.
I had a bit of a wake up call with how much I am over doing it 2 weeks ago. I got home from the second workout of the day and after a full day of work, and I could barely climb the stairs to my apartment because I was almost passing out and felt so nauseous. I couldn't stomach any food (which for me, is a sign something is really wrong because I am always hungry), and felt horrendous. I went to sleep with a bucket next to the bed because I was worried I could be ill.
Today we are surrounded by messages that tell us we have to be positive all the time, we have to keep moving or we will get left behind, we aren't allowed to feel down, or tired, or sad.
Well, I AM REALLY MOTHERFUCKING TIRED.
Shock horror; A woman whose day starts at 4.45am, works out, works full time, is building and maintaining a brand, up until 2 weeks ago was studying towards a degree, and then goes ahead and starts undertaking a 6 week challenge, is a little exhausted and just wants to sit down.
It can be hard to stay motivated, and sometimes you do just need to listen to your body and take a frickin' break! Sit down, sleep, eat the ice cream, watch the Netflix, skip the 17th workout for the week. Balance is what makes life livable, and if we get lost in the up keep of what we think we should be, who we think we should be, what we think we should be doing, you'll end up passing out with a bucket next to your bed.
So here is a little video that I posted on my Edits By Elle Facebook page that might give you some ideas of how you can get back on track when you are feeling like you have lost your mojo and you are ready to try again but not sure where to start.
Falling down isn't the failure, it's not getting back up that is. It's okay to not be okay sometimes, because after all, we are only human.
How do you get yourself back on track when you feel like you are ready to give up?
