Ever since November I have been in this downward slump in my motivation. No energy, no desire to workout, and no desire to eat sensibly. It has been up and down at times with a good week here and a good week there.
But today while sitting on the couch I was surfing my spark page, which by the way I have been keeping up on, and decided to re-evaluate my measurement. Oh boy was that not such a good idea, or perhaps it was. Although I have been in a slump I have noticed I managed to stay within my current weight give or take, mostly give, a couple of pounds (which has increased my BMI, but that is a subject for another time).
So as I was doing this I decided it was time to get off the couch and get a workout in. I am up, and my son is still sleep, so this is the perfect time to do it. Boy that was the eye opener, my fitness level as decreased a bit and I know I need to be more consistent. I just don't want this to consume my life to where it becomes stressful, like it did last summer.
Although I do enjoy working out and finding new ones to do, it became stressful to find the time to fit them in. I am a single mother and my child craves all of my time, something I enjoy don't get me wrong, but it difficult to find that "me time" we all need.
So, Dear God I do pray that this is the beginning to a new start by incorporating what I had before but with much less stress and much more enjoyment. Although this is not a resolution it is always good to re-evaluate ones place from time to time.
I have rambled enough and although this is not a venting session this has been quite freeing.
