Trying to re-motivate
Wednesday, October 05, 2011
Everything was going so well!
I was eating well, and paying close attention to my portions.
I was running every other day, and had done that for just over three weeks. I was really ENJOYING running.
But then the floods came, the darker mornings set in, my money was a bit tighter, and my life started to seem too hectic due to impending real estate transactions.
Though this would have been a great time to KEEP taking care of myself, I simply quit my routine and diet altogether, and have been generally dragging for the last 3 weeks.
I'm not beating myself up TOO much, and I don't mean to whine. But I am a *little* disappointed.
Now getting kick-started again seems daunting somehow.
Do I have to start at the beginning of my couch to 5k program? Can I just pick up where I left off?
Can I find the time to go grocery shopping?
When I feel overwhelmed I tend to do this "shutting down" thing. Anyone familiar with that?
Well, simply writing about this was good. I've been lurking around Spark, but not really participating much. My friend Jenn urged me to get on and say something, so here I am--thank you, Jenn!
I hope you're all well and happy!
