Day 2- Post Holiday Funk

Day 2 of my blog. I haven't linked this sucker anywhere yet, so I think the only person reading it is me. That's ok. Ha.

Today I feel very tired. Holidays are always really emotional for me... Yesterday it all sort of came to a head and I spent a lot of it crying. My poor husband. Luckily he is very supportive and always around to lend a hug and a tissue. I feel like this weekend is my last weekend to be a schlub and cry and eat all of the bad food and lay around and be a turd. Starting Monday I get back into beast mode and get motivated. I know everyone says this, but I am serious!!
Trevor and I have started going on walks and I think that helps my life balance. Fresh air and sunshine always peps me up. Today I feel tired but I also feel hopeful.
THIS YEAR IS MINE.

  2. My fiancé and I are going to start going on walks. We are getting married in may so we want to exercise together before the wedding. It's great because it gives us a chance to get away from technology and distractions and just enjoy each other's company. Keep up the good work!!!

  4. I'm reading as well :) I live on the east coast and work in a basement all day. I always try to walk outside when I get home since I miss the daylight all the time. Cold fresh air cures a lot of things, at least it has for me over the years.

  6. I spent New Year's Day crying all day too a couple of years ago, and to make matters worse, new year's is my birthday! I'm glad you got out and got some air with Trevor. He's awesome! Sending you lots of love and support from SF!

  7. I'm feeling pretty down on myself having to dig deep and find motivation, 3 months to go to black belt grading and not feeling good enough.
    I know the dark days will pass but it's a rotten time if year full of expectations and as we get older it all feels unrealistic.
    We can do it, forget the date, success is in us all year we just need to push forward. Have a great day,week, month, year. Xx

  8. The holidays are a downer for me too. I've been having a fall out with my family and it's just real depressing because I was always the one who bent over backwards for them. So when the holidays come up I leave my house. Me and my fiance make a trip. This year he took me to the flea market and let me Cruz around. It was nice. Just keep your head up because you're not one in your struggles and you are an inspiring and passionate woman who has alot of women looking up to her. I admire you. You let you're heart show.

  11. I really like this blog of yours. Even though I don't know you, I have been following you on youtube and facebook some years now and you seem such an interesting person and so empowering for us, women. I love that you're sharing your real life, it's also empowering to think that everyone has difficult days, everyone feels like shit on occasion and sharing this always brings me closer to other people. I also have a difficult time on holidays. Thank you for your presence. Cheers from Athens, Greece (yeap, that's awfully far from USA!)

  12. I can totally relate! I cried off and on all Christmas eve. My parents were visiting, my girls (4 & 5 yrs) were with me and I had no good reason to be sad and yet I was!

  13. The end of the year always feels so heavy. I have been having a lot of these same feelings, but am so ready for the goodness 2016 will bring. I am so happy that you have started a blog. You are SUCH an inspiration, and I just love you! Here's to a great week, and a great year! <3

  14. It's crazy how such happy seasons and celebrations can do this to us, but it is reassuring to know that we aren't alone!!! This is a great start to owning your life and 2016! I'm already looking forward to tomorrow!!!

  17. I know that feeling! The holidays can be hard, especially if someone important isn't there to share it. I normally cope well but following five weeks away from the world due to an operation and a husband being at work for most of the week, I pretty much lost the plot!. Poor man had to sit with me while I picked myself back up and stopped being a gross mess in the corner! Having that support is amazing! And walks are so cathartic.

  18. The end of the year has always been hard for me, too. My poor husband has spent many a New Year's trying to cheer me up or help me stay optimistic about the new year ahead. The awesome part about being married to your favorite person is that he'll just do these things and be there to cheer for you when you do get your butt in gear again. (Hurray, Trevor! I know he's got your back on this. Y'all have the sweetest friendship at the base of your relationship. How awesome is that!) Know that you have friends all over the world who are looking forward to all the incredible things you'll share with us this year, and this particular girl is sending you huge hugs from Texas!

  19. I've overeaten the last month... Thanksgiving, vacation, getting married, Christmas and now my baby turned 1 today. I'm so bloated and unhappy with myself. Time to pick ourselves back up!!

  20. Holidays and winter in general same for me, only now I just feel a bit empty, hubby even had to force me to put up a tree...you are not alone to be sure, here in Sacramento it's not even warm enough to go out, but fresh air does help...good for you...best of luck.

  21. Going on walks can be good for the soul. There was a time in my life when I would walk home late every night around town,and feel so much peace and happiness. Being under a dark sky full of stars with the beautiful moon shining down. Loved it so much :) Plus during that particular period in my life, my walks home truly felt like the only time I had to myself. To be by myself, de-stress, get that exercise in, and enjoy the beautiful night.

  22. You're not alone sistah. Lol. The holidays are emotional for me too. Family is so spread out and it's just my hubby and i. We try to make it festive but really it's not the same. His parents have passed on and mine live in two different states on the other side of the country...so we're alone alot. Feel what you need to feel and let it out. Walk, relax and live for the day.

  23. I hope you feel better more and more. Holidays (at least christmas and new years) are indeed very emotional. I have the same.
    What I do, is take my dog and take a walk with some fresh air - or I watch him sleep, which makes me even happier!
    Hope we'll all be more motivated on Monday...

  24. I think this will be so great for you. Even though you are already a very special person to all of us, maybe doing this will help you realize it too. I look forward to reading your blog. I personally think you're great. It shows in your YouTube Channel and FB. And generally how you conduct yourself and how encouraging you are. This. Will. Be. Great!

  25. I go out for walks since I have my little boy (so for a few months now). Even when we had a stressfull day, after the walk it all gets better!

  26. This year is definitely yours! Someday you'll own the Holidays as well. I am taking back Christmas, little by little, by celebrating it on my own terms. A walk in the snow, candles, and plenty of spiced incense can work miracles. And sometimes the quiet pain of broken hopes and dreams linger longer than I like. I win some, I lose some, and it's okay. I am 41 and like to think that I am "getting better at" this thing called life. May 2016 be a year of abundance for us all!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Please be nice and kind with your words even if you have something to criticize. I am trying to answer to as many questions as possible but please have some understanding that I cannot answer to all of you. XOXO
