The alarm rang quite early this morning and my groggy head just couldn’t be bothered to lift up off the pillow. The plan was to get back on track with my plan to to hit the gym before work in the morning, but I’m having a good deal of difficulty getting things back in order after all the time off from being sick. I did get my first workout back in on Tuesday this week, but I’ve been down again since then. My cough is still at it, waking me up in the middle of the night, which creates enough of a disruption that sleep is difficult resulting in the groggy head lift problem.
Without the workouts, I’m also making some poor food choices and resorting to those after work drinks again. It’s such a vicious cycle and one that I know I need to break. Why is it so hard to get back into a routine again? It wasn’t so long ago that I was going at it full force. I keep telling myself that once I get rolling, the motivation will come right back – but telling myself and actually doing it are clearly two different things.
The barbell is calling my name – it’s just a little difficult to hear over this bugger of a cough. Here’s to hoping for restful sleep tonight.
