I ran with the pooch today.

It was a slow and short one thanks to all the sniffing and potty breaks we had to take. I wasn’t feeling very motivated, so at least it got me out of the house.

I seem to be struggling with motivation. For weeks I just haven’t been able to get back into it. I keep trying, but I’m just not feeling it. And I’m not sure how to fix it?

I’m going to pull out my journal today and see if I can write it out. Maybe revisit my goals or pin some motivational stuff on Pinterest.

How do you all get fired back up when you’re just not feeling motivated?

This weekend - this morning.

It was an active weekend. I ran, I did yoga, I hiked. I did not make the healthiest choices, but at least I got up and got moving.

This morning is a different story. I woke up on time to run only to realize I had left my shoes outside to air out last night and it rained. They’re soaked. I figured I’d try out one of my Jillian Michaels DVDs, but I didn’t have hand weights. It’s been one of those mornings.

Luckily, I can work out during my lunch break. So all hope is not lost for today.

143.8 lbs

Despite my hiatus from all things healthy, I don’t seem to have done too much damage as far as the number on the scale goes. In fact, that’s the lowest I’ve been in like a year. Unfortunately, it’s not legitimate weight loss. It’s more like a loss of water weight since I haven’t been drinking water like I should and I’m super dehydrated. Just another reason why weight is really just a number on a scale and nothing more.

I ran today for the first in what seems like forever. My Map My Run app says the last time I ran before today was August 25th. That’s how long I’ve been off the wagon. Goodness gracious. 

Today’s a new start though. I’m committed to getting back to it. My pace wasn’t terrible today despite my body protesting every step, and I’m headed to yoga here in a little bit. Later this afternoon I’m meeting a friend for a very short hike. It feels good to get moving again!

Yesterday…

Just didn’t go well. I slept in and skipped my run. I ate a lot of unhealthy stuff, and although I didn’t have a drink, I vegged out in front of the laptop watching Kdramas until 2:30am. Oh, and I didn’t post on Tumblr. Needless to say, I’m not doing much better today.

That being said, I may have finally gotten the kick in the butt I needed to get back in the game. I can be a competitive person at times, and someone’s inadvertently challenged me (they don’t even know it).

So yeah, I think I’ll be salvaging what’s left of the day and doing my best to get back on track.
