I go to bed every night with the best of intentions for working out the next day. Yet, lately I have been waking up with such nagging fatigue that running feels like an impossible task. The fatigue builds through the day, I get annoyed with myself, and I end up doing nothing. Rewind and repeat.
I think I would feel better if I worked out. I also think I would feel better if I went on a veggie binge. My mind is willing, but my body is just too tired to comply. So, this morning I got up and told myself I had to do even the smallest workout. I worked on my core for 5 minutes. It was only 5 minutes, but that is better than the 0 minutes of the previous day. So, I’ve realized maybe that is going to have to be my way back to health. Maybe I can’t set my sights just yet on lacing up my shoes and running 3 miles. Maybe I have to start with something very small and very easy. The key is to start because you can’t get anywhere if you just stand still.
