The scale has not been kind to me for over a week now. My clothes actually feel a bit tighter. My ankle hurts, my knee hurts, and my sinuses feel like they've been pumped full of cement.

My trainer had me do both a little bit of running and some full body strength yesterday and my body is telling me to take it easy, so I guess I'll just walk on the treadmill. Maybe I'll play with the incline a bit. Maybe I'll try a stationary bike. I dunno, I'm just not feeling it. Part of me is saying if I know I can't push myself, what's the point? Mentally I know that the point is to be healthy, I'm just having a bit more trouble than usual convincing myself this morning.

I'm gonna get the biggest kid off to school, have some breakfast, and head to the gym. The middle kid will have fun at babysitting and I'll have an hour of peace, at least.

    I was in an exercise slump about a week ago. I made myself go to the gym anyway and tried new things. It helped a little. It's OK to have an easy workout day. Rest and recovery are important too.

    I hope you feel better soon!

    I'm sorry you've got the blahs. I an definitely relate! For me, when I'm feeling that way, I just make myself go to the gym anyway. Sometimes I only do a little bit, and other times, just being there inspires me to do more. Don't give up- as long as you keep moving forward, you're going to make progress. Best of luck!
