Burned Out

burnout-to-balance

The last couple of days I’ve had an emotional dip and I think the energy I put it in my fitness world and professional world have left me depleted.  As you all know I’ve been intense about my workouts–exercising 6 days a week for the last several months.  I have not missed a work out.  There are even days where I’ve done two workouts in a day.  I’m still at 157 –down 17 pounds from 174 several months ago.  I was hoping to get down to 154 this week.  I think that’s part of the burnout.  Every week, I have high expectations not only for myself physically but also professionally.  I am a public speaker as well, and the month or so I have been intensely focused on preparing a relationship series at my church.  I love fitness, and I love my career, but I really need to take a break!

And this is all in the midst of balancing my work life as a new therapist in private practice and being a mother to two highly energetic young boys under the age of 5 years old.  I am so looking forward to this mini-vacay–and there will be no structured workouts!  I am needing this time of rest and rejuvenation when I head out to a conference in Michigan next week–just me!  I plan on ordering room service, maybe get a massage, walking around the grounds, and letting myself be still.  Notice I did not say—splurging on meals!  I also have a highly active social life, so I am going to look forward to slowing it down.  I just don’t have the energy to give to outside relationships right now.  Perhaps, I’ll write more, read a book, and get some well needed zzz’s.  I’m looking forward to getting myself balanced again–so I can feel rejuvenated, recharged, and ready to take it on again.

So, that’s where I’m at right now.  #tmillerproject #restandrejuvination #burnedout #eatclean #gettingtofit2015
