I realized today that I’m in some kind of funk. I don’t know if it’s a touch of the winter blues. I’m not sure if it’s from the sinus crud that has been plaguing me lately. I don’t know if I have a bit of burnout. But I do know that I haven’t really been feeling myself and can’t seem to shake it.
I have zero energy. If I didn’t have real life obligations, I think I would stay in my pj’s and robe and watch tv on the couch all day. I’m finding it very hard to get out of bed in the mornings, even when it’s 10am on the weekends. I don’t feel like doing anything at all. I’ve only worked out a few times in the past 2-3 weeks and I was doing so good. While my blood sugars haven’t been terrible, they haven’t been stellar either.
I’m trying to determine the cause of this so that I can work on the solution. But I can’t seem to pinpoint it on any one thing. I believe my sinus issues may play a part – while I don’t have an infection, I have been suffering a lot from allergy symptoms for some reason and I know lethargy is a big symptom of many things sinus. I know I need to push myself but I can’t seem to find the motivation to do that. What I’m really hoping is that this is only temporary. Because I would like more than anything to feel like me again.

Hang in there. Hopefully things get better on their own. If not, go talk to someone (a therapist) who can help you determine the cause of these feelings. In the mean time, consider doing a Salsa dance workout video at home. Those always make me laugh (and sweat!). xoxoxo
Stacey, I know I get this way sometimes after the holidays. I usually try to go to the local conservatory and sit in one of the greenhouses. A little time there really perks me up for some reason. But I realize that everyone is different. Just find whatever sparks you. I know it’s out there. Hope you feel like you again soon!
Girl, I am with you! I feel like I’ve been fighting something sinus-y for months now. Just got through with 10 days of antibiotics for the latest sinus infection, but still have a cough and congestion. It’s so draining. And I *do* think it’s seriously mood-affecting. I realized the other day (when watching Frozen) that I hadn’t truly laughed out loud in weeks. I need to change that. As I’m fond of saying to others, “fake it til you make it.” Sometimes, just pretending to be in a good mood can get you out of the funky bad one. Worth a shot! Regardless, we’re here for you, and send you LOTS of love via the internet!! 🙂
Mmm. I can relate. My favorite part of the day is getting back into bed. Anything with the sinus makes the blues feel a zillion times more bluesy. I hope you feel better soon.
