Been feeling pretty blah. All I wanna do is sit on my ass lately. Haven't really felt motivated to lace up my kicks in a couple weeks. End of school year craziness an tryin to get the 14 yr old to give a shit abt finals, my brother being home from the Air Force, nasty blisters from soccer, my house is a wreck, its been nasty raining or nast hot, Excuses, excuses... Lol. I've been at a weight plateau for a while now and that's frustrating too!

Man I'm just full of complain today!

Time to pull up the big girl panties and get back on routine. Wooosahh big daddy!! :-p

    Fake it 'til you make it. Pretend you are enthused to exercise. Act like someone who makes good food choices. Instead of finding excuses why you can't/didn't/won't find reasons why you can/did/will. You can get past this slump.

    I agree with Tracy. When Im not motivated I just tell myself to go out and run 1 mile. that 1 mile usually turns into 4 or more miles.

    Exactly like Erik said - force yourself out there. Or get some new songs to your playlist! Even just ONE new song helps me when I'm in a rut! Or a new item of running clothing - like a new top? Or shorts? Even socks?! :)

    Complain away! We get it and we'll wait... ...ok, that's good. Now lace up & get a mile or two and see what happens. (Oh, and that whole 14 yr old thing. Ugh, I know! But we're responsible TO them, not FOR them. They'll step up or they won't. Don't beat yourself up! You're doing great!)

    Like the Nike ad says: "just do it". Don't get into the conversation with yourself about whether you want to exercise, or have time, or feel like it. Just lace'm up and go... without thinking.

    I totally understand....many of the same issues here. But you're battling through. We all have good days and bad days. Hang in there! Get out there...even if it's just for 1 mile, 30 minutes, etc. You are strong...you can do it! :)

    Sometimes just a little thing can help get a ball rolling. Your house is a mess--- pick one thing to focus on a day (each day being a different tackle) for 7 days straight. At the end of the week you will notice a change and it will feel more like a routine again. Maybe take the 14 yr old out for a walk with you and through some activity and get some quality time. BListers suck...so go out in flippity flops! LOL.... Brother airforce! Sounds like AF PT time with bro! :P Hang in there!!

    We all have times like this. I've found that life transitions, even small ones, can throw me off my routine. Keep at it. Try to squeeze in a little run. The endorphines will help you feel better when you get back home. Hang in there!!

    Your mind must rule over your body. Lace up your shoes and walk out the door. Before you know it, you will be running free and happy. Running helps me deal with everything else that comes my way. I find that having a plan works best for me. On Sunday, I plan the coming week. Most of the time, it does not go exactly as I plan but......if you shoot for the moon you will always land somewhere among the stars. Happy running! You can do this!

    One day at a time...just get out the door and do a little something for you and it'll energize you to be able to do all the other stuff. I can totally sympathize with the 14 y.o. and end of school year craziness, that's enough to make a "sanity" run necessary!

    Stupid character limit!!

    But anyway... The kids handling her business, the brother left for his next post :(, the blisters (mostly) healed, the house can wait, an it's gonna be nasty hot for the next 3 months.. Unfortunately I'll have to wait one more day to lace em up. Or slip em on, since both my pair have locklaces :). A good friend of ours is moving to his next post this week. Thank you Coast Guard. So tonight we're taking him for pizza and beer.

    Tomorrow, however.. It's on!

    Life happens! I've been on-again off-again losing weight for the past couple of years. Sometimes a plateau does me good because I just need a rest. Other times I need to shake things up. I'm a paleo 2.0 dieter, and the more I try to get away from it the more convicted I seem to get. My latest kick is intermittent fasting....skip breakfast and lunch, hard workout with weights and aerobics (the hunt), and then eat lots of meat and veggies at night after getting home. Its a plateau buster
