Man I don't know what happened last week but I guess I was in a funk.
No exercise at all. Hear me? Nada.

So this week's been good. 3 days straight of at least 20 minutes, which is pretty darn good. So I looked at my fitness tracker from the last 2 months? Turns out I've done pretty darn good for the past 8 weeks straight. Well, except for last week. Which, like I said: FUNK.

What do you do when you're in a funk? Mine sort of passed away on it's own, but I wish I had noticed it/remedied it sooner. Instead I lived in like this no-exercise, eat cake for dinner existence.
Actually, can I just blame it on PMS?

  when I get in a funk, I meditate. Clearing my mind works wonders.

    That happens to me too with not only exercise, but diet as well.

Losing weight is a rigorous process. I think sometimes we just need a break. Since you've been doing so incredibly well, perhaps not working out for a week is exactly what you need to rejuvenate yourself.

I read somewhere once that the key to a successful weight loss is adjust exercise and/or diet to "maintain" for a week every so often as a mental break. This could be a good thing for your body too, to receive a break as a form of cycling. I know when I take breaks, I start to miss the healthy food and workouts, and when I start it up again, it's like visiting an old friend!

And don't forget, the important thing isn't how we get off the wagon or how long we take breaks for; it's when and how we get back on the wagon.

Hope this helps!

P.S. Just to prove that breaks are good for everybody, whenever a runner prepares to run a half or full marathon, their schedule always mandates that the last few weeks before the race, they run a whole lot less. Rest is good!

    I just have to take some quiet time for myself and review all my goals and the ways I hope to do it...
