Rock Bottom...

(I guess you can probably tell how this post is going to go...)

I'm in one of those moods. I honestly was revved up to go exercise this morning. I went to the gym and hit the treadmill and I was "rewarded" with knee pain. Aggh... seriously? As if finding the motivation to do what I need to isn't hard enough. I'm beginning to think I'm never going to reach my goals... I'm slowly unraveling all of the hard work I've done. I'm watching my dreams fade away.

I am down in the dumps. I guess I'll ride it out (not that I have much choice)... a positive attitude is bound to return at some point, right?

Here's hoping your Monday is better than mine!

Getting there...

Hey all --

It is a beautiful Saturday morning here in Richmond, VA. The sun is out and it's warming up -- and to risk sounding like a rhyming dork -- spring is in full swing!

I had a lovely walk/run this morning. Since I slacked off 2 weeks, I went back to week 1 of the C25K program. I found a couple of new podcasts with music that is more my style (the first one worked, but the music was a little too new-agey for my tastes). It was great, but harder than I remember. Payback for taking such a long break, I guess.

As I've mentioned before, I love when I am in this enthusiastic and positive headspace! I wish I could keep it sustainable. But maybe the better way to deal with this is by accepting the lows with the highs. Learn to work through the lows because the highs will return soon enough.
