Sad Monday (Summer 5% W2 D3)

Monday, July 25, 2011

I met with 4 friends this weekend in Budapest, it was very nice, I was so happy to see them. Even on the train back, I was so happy.
But somehow, something happened, I don't really know what, I was so deeply sad inside me, the whole day, even now.
I didn't do anything with this feeling, I didn't look for the cause, I was just watching it, how it is, what is it doing in me.

In the evening, I ate two cakes, a chocolate Sacher torte, and a Mohn-Birne cake, both were delicious. I rarely ate these types of sweets, but today I felt I really need to give myself something sweet. Otherwise, I kept my calorie budget fully.

Otherwise, last week I did every day the 10K run, on Saturday morning I was running with a friend in Budapest. He used to be "the runner", and funnily, I was doing better then him. This was such a good experience, that I really make progress.

Today, I did my 10K run in the evening. I was just dragging myself along, I had energy, but I was not energetic. This sadness also influenced my exercise.

This is the inside of a house from Saturday in Budapest.

    I hope the sadness has left and you are feeling better today. I am amazed that you were still able to get out and do the run. You always do so well with your eating and running. Having the cake and cookies just makes you more human. It helps those of us still struggling to see that everyone else has temptations too!

    Your dedication to running, and seeing your improvements along the way, is a wonderful thing. Eventually you'll figure out where the sadness is coming from, feel it, learn from it and then move forward. It's all any of us can do. Keep on putting one foot in front of the other and you'll get back to being your energetic self. emoticon

    If you think about it, I'll bet you are getting more in touch with your feelings than you were before you started Sparkpeople. I believe that the running and the tracking is making you very tuned in to yourself, and your emotions. I am glad you allowed yourself to feel sad--hopefully you will not always turn to sweets when you are, but it is good that you recognize your feelings. I hope tomorrow will be a very happy day.

    I hope you're feeling better by now. Could it be that you were feeling blue because of the bad news that came out of Norway this weekend?

    Well now, sometimes the ebb and flow of life can do that to us and we never know what the cause it. Could you be sad about the Oslo Norway massacre? leaving your friends? Make a change in your routine and add something fun see if it doesn't break the spell. May God bless your endeavors. :)
