Getting back on the wagon..

I feel like I have lost my motivation emoticon

I have had a lot going on lately and I am regretting not fitting in my workouts or logging my food. Shortly after the BIG move to Tennessee and getting settled into my new job, I went to Ireland for 2 weeks. It was an amazing trip!

BUT it threw me off my routine. So I have to suck it up and get back on it! I know its that first step I have to take and stick with it. I know its easier said than done but I did it once, I can do it again!

I have family visiting for the summer and I need to work out a schedule to fit a workout in. It makes it hard when you want to spend as much time with them as possible. One happens to be my 12 year old daughter who is not an active person. So I am trying to find activities she likes to do that can be beneficial as a workout for me and fun for her as well. She doesnt enjoy cycling anymore emoticon . She used to do 15 miles easy! But as she grows up..she just wants to sit around. I know its a phase, my oldest was the same way. If anyone has suggestions, I am open emoticon

I am training for the Color Run in Knoxville. Its in October and I know I have plenty of time but thats what makes it harder..I figure I can run tomorrow or the next day but never Today.

I can do this..I can get back into it!!

I brought my walking shoes to work today, I will go walking at lunch emoticon

Sometimes writting down your plans makes it easier to get motivated to do them.

    I figure on this healthy lifestyle journey we ALL hit bumps in the road (heck, I've wandered off the road ENTIRELY before!). The IMPORTANT thing is that you pick yourself back up and continue to head in the right direction. It sounds like that is EXACTLY what you're doing. Know there are lots of us right alongside you, cheering you on!
