new year funk

it's the new year and i disappeared from blog world for a week longer than i anticipated. i think of how i felt at this time last year...my mind was teeming with goals and plans. and this year...well, i feel blah. i haven't been in the greatest mood and i've been getting overly frustrated with small things.

some words to better describe this "mood":
anxious
overwhelmed
pessimistic
annoyed

i'm feeling unappreciated & taken advantage of, to a certain extent (not by husband though - he's been supportive & positive & is really doing a lot to help me out with stuff).

so is it just me? maybe i am in a funk. i'm working on narrowing down specifically what the source of the problem is and wading through all of the symptoms is a slow process. this year will bring forth a lot of changes and the unknown...

on a positive note, hubby & i have started a workout program in the mornings together (at 5am!!) while the workouts are HARD, i've actually enjoyed the additional time in the morning to myself. my typical morning is workout from 5-5:45ish, clean up & make coffee (until 6:40ish), then work on homework until it's time to go to work. being productive in the morning is pretty awesome. the downside is that i can barely keep my eyes open after 9pm.

hope everyone's year started off well! i'll be catching up on your blogs in the next few days...

yeah for morning workouts! Chris and I are getting up at that time too - different routines but it's motivating when we both get up. Are you doing a special program?

I'm sorry to hear you're in such a funk. Keep probing your feelings further and figure out why precisely you feel this way. I've no doubt once you know that you'll be able to sort things out. And early morning workouts are great, aren't they? Totally get you moving, though I'm like you -- when I'm up working out that early, I pass out at 9, 9:30pm at the latest. It's odd. Keep going, my dear. I'm here if you need to talk.
