I am struggling with running right now y'all.
When school started last week, everyone wanted to know what I was doing to get rid of the weight. (And side note: I really have a hard time not being snarky sometimes and saying, "I've taken up magic tricks like Houdini. This is all just an illusion.")
But y'all. I am having a hard time with running. It seems my running mojo has run out the door.
I know part of it is that I'm bored with my running trail. I need a new area to run. But I'm afraid the boogie man is going to get me. It's my own stupid anxiety that is getting to me and is also another post in and of itself.
The other part is hard to explain. It seems like almost all of our friends (the IRL ones!) here are on the weight loss bandwagon now. I'm super happy for everyone, but all the questions they have are really overwhelming and intimidating. I'm no expert and I honestly don't know how big bloggers like Mama Laughlin do it. I just imagine people in her every day life constantly asking questions. I'm still in the middle of my battle and I have to dig for motivation on a regular basis. So how I can I pass that on to others?
Something hardly any one ever says is that weight loss can be a selfish process sometimes. I really do have to focus on what I'm doing to stay on track...and sometimes that is all I can handle. And that's kinda where I am.
I hope someone has experienced this. I also hope I don't sound pompous or full of myself. Because I am here to tell you that I am not.
In the meantime, I'm on the hunt for some new running songs to help cure my ails.
