Where did the motivation go???
Tuesday, October 09, 2012
It's been months since I posted a blog. It's been at least 6 weeks since I was faithfully tracking both food and exercise. And not that I'm not still exercising, but for some reason I haven't been able to get around to recording what I've been doing. So, where did my motivation go?
I'm starting to think it's been a couple of step process. First, we took a week and a half mid July to go on vacation. 19 hours straight in a car with little to do but stare out the window and eat crappy food. Back from vacation, I just start to get in the swing of things again with working out and yoga. And then bam, labor day weekend, I have the worst sinus infection I've had in years. It took almost three weeks to get over. And then right when I start to feel better, allergies mixed with a head cold hit. It's been a fabulous fall so far.
I'm so far behind in my workouts, it's not even funny. The upside? I'm still losing weight. The downside? I've got a Zombie 5k run on Sunday that I'm nowhere near where I should be. I should have been almost to jogging the entire thing, but I can barely jog for over a minute before I have to start walking again.
So, back to square one. Back to trying to get to yoga at least twice a week and back to working on building up my endurance for running. Unfortunately, it's just not in time to get through the race on Sunday.
