Slowly but surely



I’ve been feeling really low these last two days. Yesterday the plan was to do half an hour of high intensity dance followed by a full yoga session.Usually, nothing cheers me up more than a good dancing session but after 15 minutes or so i just had to drop it. I wasn’t feeling it at all. My body was heavy and mood just wouldn’t improve.

That was followed by a quick stretching session and 10 minutes of HeadSpace (even that didn’t really go to plan).

For the rest of the day i just felt blue and now there’s this overwhelming feeling that – despite my best efforts – SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) is hanging around just waiting to kick in.

Today the plan was to go for another power walk and I stuck with it but my pace just wasn’t there. I’m doing my best not to be too harsh on myself and focus on the fact that I made it to the park no matter what.

With the Royal Parks Half 11 days away, it’s hard not to focus on performance but I’m sticking with it.Hopefully is the time of the month or something of the sort and I just have to make through it.

In 11 days I shall be celebrating 3 months binge free and will do it so in style, finishing my first ever half marathon, I’m hoping that helps me keeping the mood in check and hopefully, my place on CBT will come up soon.
