I don’t know if it’s just me, but I always feel a bit funny when the seasons change. I’m sure there’s some spiritual-type explanation about the moon and such like!
As we move in to Autumn, I just feel exhausted. I always feel tired, as you do with a baby and a toddler. But at the moment, it’s different. Like I feel exhausted throughout my body. I don’t want to do anything. I kind of just want to hibernate.
I don’t want to cook. In fact, the thought of cooking is filling me with dread! I want to just eat something comforting and carby, like buttery toast, for every meal! I usually really suffer with cabin fever, but right now I don’t want to go anywhere.
And I don’t want to do anything in the house either. What I really want to do is just put comfies on and sit and crochet all day!! Since Sienna was born, I’ve not crocheted anywhere near as much as I was when pregnant. But I’ve really gotten back in to it the last couple of weeks.
Ella is going through a ‘play with me phase’. Of course, we always do some play together through the day. But she wants to play together all day at the moment, and I’m doing everything I can to stop myself putting her in front of the iPad so that I don’t have to play. Not good!!
I have plans for the business, an event in November to promote. But I just don’t want to pick up my laptop. I really need to get moving with it.
And I was doing so well with exercise. I haven’t been for a run in over a week now. I’m still going to my twice weekly bootcamp sessions (nothing like pre-paying to get you motivated to go!). But, where I usually give it my all, I found yesterday I just couldn’t push myself to the max.
I know it’ll pass, as I’ve been here before. And I need to push on regardless. Get out for a run. Go for more walks with the girls. Snuggle up with Ella and read a book. And stop eating toast!!!!
