Mojo, where are you?

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

After my last post, I had to really think about what has caused me to lose my mojo. I think part of it is baby all the time, no me time. I tried to get a routine down, but DH's routine really affects it. For a week or so when he went to bed early, I went down to our basement and did ST. Like a said it was a week or so. He has stopped going to the gym himself and his eating is bad. Now that he is on work share aka 4 day work weeks he is home more days and he doesn't want to cook or anything, let's just say pizza and hamburgers have become a part of our diet these past couple months. Yes I have been eating gluten because I'm tired of him complaining that I restrict him on where we can eat. I believe that is were my mojo started to go. I have less energy, plus I feel it has been making more depressed since I started eating it again., and thinking about past relationships wondering where it all went wrong. Viscous cycle I know! I have told hubby no more gluten, I'm tired of the headaches, low energy and the depression when it is so nice and sunny out.

After today's announcement I kinda wondered if my Mojo went because I no longer get Oxygen mag, looking at the recipes and fit women did keep me motivated. Today they finally announced that they found a publisher and will start printing again. But do I dare get another subscription? I feel a tad bit scorned over the whole thing, leaving us all hanging not know what was happening. Taking money the day of the closure from many subscribers. I probably will subscribe again just to help get that motivation back, but it won't be so easily handed over LOL. I also thought that maybe finding a gym that has child care while I go work out would help out with my getting back to the routine and getting fit.

Did you lose your mojo? What did you do to get it back?

    I hear ya. I keep getting thrown off too. This morning I LOOKED at my gym bag...lol! Maybe I will do a run tonight :) Don't let by drag you down with him. Start buying your own food and cooking it yourself. What you eat ISN'T his decision. And the gluten does make a difference. Let him eat what he wants and if he sees you aren't playing into it, perhaps he will get back on track too..?
