Where is my pep?????

Anyone who knows me well would probably agree that I am a relatively perky person normally. Perhaps a little bit Polyanna, glass is half full, try to make the best of it, but perky nonetheless.

This leads me to feel EXTREMELY frustrated that I have absolutely no pep these days. I know I am coming off of an illness, and that I have to give it time. Monday was my first day back at work after two weeks off (the first of which I pretty much spent in a supine position, on meds for pain and nausea). For the past three days, I have carried my gym bag into work, hoping for a short run at the end of the day. For the past three evenings, I have carried the back back out to my car without opening it. I worked later than planned on Monday, but each day have left work completely exhausted. Yes, we have been busy at the hospital, but not the busiest we've ever been.

I know I need to listen to my body and give it time. I keep reminding myself that just going to work and being on my feet all day is more exercise than I've had in two weeks. I still don't like it, though.

So enough whining, but if you find a little extra pep or perkiness lying around, would you please send it my way?


  1. I'm draggin' lately too Keirsten. If you find some extra mojo lying around after you fill your tank, give me a holla.

  2. Relatively perky? You are the cheerleader of cheerleaders! While you may not feel too much like training, don't worry about it. Use this time to spend it with your fam. Once you feel better, you'll be back at and wish you had a little extra time to spend with them... Enjoy the time sista!

  3. I know how weird it is to feel so "drab" when you're used to feeling peppy-been there done that. don't fight it-go with the flow-let the body do it's thing and you will be stronger than ever!! Got faith in you chica :)

  4. I've been really dragging this week too!! It must be something in the air! Hang in there, girlie!! You've had a tough time the past few weeks with everything that has been going on. Treat yourself right and you will find the pep.
