Where did the motivation go???

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

It's been months since I posted a blog. It's been at least 6 weeks since I was faithfully tracking both food and exercise. And not that I'm not still exercising, but for some reason I haven't been able to get around to recording what I've been doing. So, where did my motivation go?

I'm starting to think it's been a couple of step process. First, we took a week and a half mid July to go on vacation. 19 hours straight in a car with little to do but stare out the window and eat crappy food. Back from vacation, I just start to get in the swing of things again with working out and yoga. And then bam, labor day weekend, I have the worst sinus infection I've had in years. It took almost three weeks to get over. And then right when I start to feel better, allergies mixed with a head cold hit. It's been a fabulous fall so far.

I'm so far behind in my workouts, it's not even funny. The upside? I'm still losing weight. The downside? I've got a Zombie 5k run on Sunday that I'm nowhere near where I should be. I should have been almost to jogging the entire thing, but I can barely jog for over a minute before I have to start walking again.

So, back to square one. Back to trying to get to yoga at least twice a week and back to working on building up my endurance for running. Unfortunately, it's just not in time to get through the race on Sunday.

    I am so glad you are back! I just joined and i need all the motivation i can find--the good news is that you are here! Yeah, you may be back at what feels like square one but having been here before--this time it will count twice and get you closer to where you where and en-route to where you want to be!

    You have work to do to get to "where you should be" take it one day at a time...push yourself like you never have before and you will go where you've been before! You may not be any where near where you should be--but you are at a great place and will get to your best one step ata time :)

    Keep posting, keep tracking, keep jogging--one minute at a time!!!
