…but the body is weak

Standard

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.
