It could be the weather.
The fact that it’s going to be 3 degrees by Monday morning – yes, 3 – could be part of the reason (or the fact that it snowed again today, on top of last week’s blizzard). Or the fact that I don’t have a tan (and always feel better with a tan, as unhealthy as it really is for you).
It could be a ‘down’ phase in adjusting to the working from home thing.
Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely am adjusting to it and for the most part, I really like it. But I know that traveling helps switch it up just enough where I don’t get bored or feel secluded. But part of me does miss being around people all day. Most days so far it hasn’t bothered me in the slightest, but this afternoon/evening, I’ve felt it. Which leads me to the next few reasons…
It could be needing another goal or something to work towards.
Yes, I know I said I want to do a triathlon and last night I took a more concrete step towards that by contacting a few instructors for availability. So, hopefully that takes off. I also want to get my running mojo back. After running the half marathon last September I haven’t had another good run. I get really winded, I have no stamina and I can’t get past 3-4 miles on the treadmill. I wonder if I might have exercise-induced asthma. (must check that out, yes, Heather) I hope to fix that problem so I can also work towards another half marathon. More near term? I am planning to do a Core Fusion Challenge with my sis Jess (wait for that blog post on hers soon, I will cross-post here), which I am really excited about.
I also need an evening hobby or ‘extra-curricular’ of sorts.
Last year, it was Group Kick training and while I’d love to train to teach another class (since my gym is full class-wise with instructors), I think I have a few other physical goals I can accomplish in the meantime. Maybe it’s a wine tasting class or a cooking class (love that idea, StartedOver!). Any takers? Maybe that will also help me balance the work from home thing with something more social.
So, why the ‘meh?!”
Besides all those reasons intermixed with the things I have planned or want to accomplish, I guess the ‘meh’ feelings happens to the best of us (right Scribblings?!). Sometimes I think this is the curse of blogging…besides being an overthinker by nature, I just think a lot during the day about stuff I want to write about and feelings I want to explore. The ‘meh’ feeling that flashed upon my earlier is just one of those feelings I decided to explore and now it’s making me feel more ‘meh’ than I think is truly necessary. I mean really, life’s great…it’s just a shitty winter that’s making me grumpy and snowballing (no pun intended!) into a variety of other mini-mehs!
Wow, this is a rambling post and I forgive you for bypassing it altogether 😉
