I've been in a rut

Monday, July 01, 2013

And it's sucked.

For 2 weeks I just didn't want to do anything. And so I didn't.

Than last night the hubs out of the blue asked if I was going for a run. In retrospect I think he was just giving me my space and letting me work through whatever was going on, and when he'd had enough he thought he'd throw out that suggestion like it was no big deal. I felt lazy, so I told him I was going for a walk. I needed 55 minutes to get my 1000 fitness minutes this month. If it weren't for him and that little tidbit of knowledge I probably wouldn't have gone. But I did. I got 2.50 miles into my walk and I couldn't take it anymore. I started jogging. My pace kicked some serious arse too! I just felt 100 times better than I had the 2 weeks I "needed" off. So I ended up doing 4.50 miles in 60 minutes. That's not even the best thing! I walk in the door and a good friend text me and wants my advice on a good jogging program. I'm floored. She said she asked me cause I'm a rockstar in this kind of stuff. Of course she opened a pandora's box of advice lol. But all of a sudden that spark I was missing the last 2 weeks was lit up again. I got on Pinterest and pinned a ton a motivation crap. I felt like I knew what I was doing again. So here's to a new month and a new start.

    Sorry to hear about your rut and so glad you were able to find your motivation again. Sounds like your hubby was able to make the right suggestion to encourage and support you- I love that.
