In a funk
Wednesday, April 24, 2013
I've been totally stressed this week as I try to get ready for this Disney trip. The kids still don't know we're going (we leave on Saturday, and will tell them Friday night). So I had to get them all packed without them knowing I'd taken a bunch of their stuff. I'm running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to get all the last minute stuff done.
In the meantime, I feel like I've lost some of my motivation. On Monday, I got dressed to go to the gym, and, on the way there, decided to stop at my favorite thrift shop that has 50% off everything on Mondays. 45 minutes later and $20 poorer, I had missed my class at the gym. It's the second Monday in a row that I got ready to go workout, and got distracted with other stuff instead. Ugh!
I'm still eating well, and still working out daily, but I really have to push myself to do it. I suppose we all go through phases of feeling blasé, and my philosophy is just to focus on my long term goals and power through it. How do you stay motivated when you're stuck in a funk?
On the upside, I finally ran a 5k in less than 40 minutes. I think my official time was 39:43. And even though I walked a portion of it, I was really proud of myself. If only I could get my stamina up and keep my head in the game, I might even be able to get my time down to around 36 minutes. That just boggles my mind!
