Hey girl - sorry it took me some time to get back to you. I read your comment on my page and I just felt like I know what you're going through. It's tough when there are life changes to get back into working out and eating healthy and all that. Adjustments are difficult and they interrupt our routine, which is enough to throw most of us off track. I've done the same thing. When I started my new job two years ago, it was right before Thanksgiving, started a new job (that required I get in to work two hours earlier, which meant no more morning runs), the time changed and the holidays, amongst other boyfriend drama and I totally lost "it" that drive, desire, motivation and I gained 20 pounds. Ugh, then I've been on a roller coaster ever since. Up and down up and down. Again, this summer I split up with my boyfriend (ex now) yet again and was kicking butt and getting in shape and down to my lowest weight. Then I got involved with him again and gained 10 pounds in just a few months. Then we finally ended it for good about 6 weeks ago and I thought that would be enough to give me that drive again but it wasn't. Then there were the holidays and I thought for sure once those were over, I'd have that motivation again. I didn't. This weekend I had a crazy run filled weekend and I made a decision at the beginning of the week that I need to start eating clean again. I feel so much better when I do so why don't I just make the choice and do it? I've been eating clean for a week, I didn't work out at all last week, I rested and got plenty of sleep. This weekend, I ran three races (that was crazy and exhausting) but I finally feel motivated. I'm seeing some changes in the scale and more importantly in my mood.

I guess my point is that I understand how you feel and why you feel the way you feel. It is normal to go through that. It's upsetting when we aren't motivated especially because we know that we can be motivated, we knew that we once had it, we knew how amazing we felt when we were on our game but then these elements combine with life and zaps it right out of us. I hope you had a relaxing weekend. Spent time on the beach and rested and that you find that motivation and inspiration again. You can do it girl, you deserve it. Think of how wonderful you will feel when you get it under control!

How is your new job going, anyway? I hope it's fabulous!!

I wish I could come up with the magic words to lead you down the inspired path, or that I could put it in a bottle and ship it to you!

Let me know how your weekend was and how you're feeling!

Hey lady! How are you doing? How's life since graduation? How's 2011 treating you? Working towards any particular goals? I love your motivation pic - you will get it done! I'm finally taking some time to try to catch up with my spark friends and just wanted to stop in and say hi and check in on you!

Hey Girl - just trying to catch up with my Spark Friends! I haven't been able to get on here much in the last couple months but have been spending a bit of time here the last couple days, finding a renewed sense of motivation from it! Anyway, I hope you are doing well!! Are you ready for the new year with some new goals??
