Photo Walk, Winter

These Pictures Kind of Sum Up January

Matt and I wanted to take advantage of the holiday on Monday (since both of us had it off), so we decided to finally catch Frozen (so cute!) and then attempted to go on a little photo walk after.

Honestly, I don’t know why I even bother going on stuff like that in January—unless it’s just snowed, January is generally quite an ugly time of year: grey skies, grey snow, and grey trees.

Therefore, I think it’s only appropriate that I posted these photos in full-on greyscale since that’s about all I see in January anyway.

You know, I don’t know what has been up with me lately, but ever since the end of the Christmas holidays, I have been more unmotivated and more gloomy than I’ve been since—wait for it!—last January.

I’ve found that I’m only completing my to-do lists and January goals on autopilot, and I think the majority of my diet has been chocolate for the past 4 weeks (I’m not even kidding—we’re talking over half of my daily calories). Last year at this time, I was at least cleaning up the apartment and stocking my fridge with lots of vegetables. This year, it’s all I can do to haul myself to work every day and remember to feed myself regularly (even if it just mostly with chocolate).

I’ve been through funks before, and so I know this one won’t last forever, but in the meantime, forgive me if my posts are a little lackluster. (And, by the way, I HAVE actually tried the usual tricks to snap myself out of it—vigorous exercise, walks outside, talking with friends, the works—to no avail.) So I guess this is just something I’ll probably have to live with as long as I live in Utah.

Other January posts that will prove this funk might be an annual tradition:

Do you feel a little “grey” come January?
