Hey, everyone! How have you all been? Things have been really busy over here lately — work, running around the city with my parents, chiropractor appointments, going out with friends, errands, the usual. Although instead of it just being ‘the usual’, I’ve been really tired. So tired, in fact, that I have not been to the gym since Saturday. For me, this is basically unheard of. I never, ever really go more than two days in a row without the gym.
But I’ve been dragging my feet, forgetting things easily, and just plain exhausted by the time I land on my couch. The extra hour of sleep in the morning has been priceless. As each day went by, I was more and more antsy that I hadn’t been to the gym. But it was just today that I kind of felt okay about it. In fact, I felt really good about it.
Recently my workouts haven’t been that great. Because to be quite honest, I haven’t had a spare second to really ‘write out’ a proper workout for myself. My body has been tired — if it wasn’t for the fact that my money has been going many (eeeeesh) other places, I would have booked myself a massage by now.
To be even more honest, the other day I was a blubbering crying mess because something happened that really disappointed me but I was also just tired. The gym has been the very very very last of my priorities. Luckily I live in New York City where I can basically get in thirty minutes of walking each day. Paired with my pretty okay eating habits, not much will effect me in four days time.
It’s just interesting to me to see how my priorities have shifted over the past year and a half of having this blog. When I first started StephSnacks, I was so vigilant about being the healthiest or being the most fit. Now, I just want to not start snoring on the subway home from work/errands/seeing friends and I want to be happy.
I’ve been way, way too tired lately and something needed to slip for a few days in order for me to kind of keep my shit together. So for now, I’m writing lists’ so that I don’t forget another damn thing and watching late night reality television so that I can shut my brain off for a moment.
And with that, I’m going to finish the People’s Choice Awards and watch the first episode of Washington Heights.
