(44 F) For the last 3 weeks (missed 2 days) I’ve gotten up at 5 am to start my day. Exercise, breakfast and prep lunch before leaving to work. Problem is although I’ve been going through the motions, it’s all in a zombie trance state and sloppy. It’s like when I’m exercising my movements are floppy instead of purposeful and defined. I’m getting married in 3 months and I’m so physically blah and tired that I can’t make my body move to get anything out of this time I’m spending it’s just flop from one movement to the next. I’m sure I can’t really be accomplishing anything. Thoughts?

I felt the same when I started waking up early... I then realised that I was breaking the inertia in body to be lazy.. after a few weeks that became my routine and I am so glad I did that, because now I seem to find that extra time for myself, which I otherwise would have wasted.. And as for the reason to continue.. Ask yourself, If you go back to your old routine, would you be any better? And what can you achieve once you start feeling active with this new routine of yours..
And congratulations for your wedding ☺️

Do you have darker skin by chance? You could be lacking vitamin D

I live in Wyoming. Work inside all day. It’s frozen and snow covered from November through May. Everyone has a lack of vitamin D here.

I’m black and was recently prescribed a super high dosage of vitamin D. I live in Vegas and have absolutely no reason to have a deficiency in this desert sun but mine was scary low. When I wake up in the mornings now, I feel content instead of groggy. All of my muscles don’t ache so much that I don’t want to get up out of bed. I’m also recovering from a very bad depressive episode (aka my whole life) and I literally feel like I have energy again. Please give it a look if you’re interested, you can get D2 supplements anywhere.
