Suffering From a Lack of Momentum

I think I lost my momentum, somewhere back in NYC.  I think it was the getting sick thing, followed by the getting sick thing, followed by work and the stress of wanting something that just isn’t happening the way that I want it to.  I think I have been sick more than I have been healthy the last two months.  It sucks.

So, I haven’t been running.  Like, I’ve run all of twice since I went to BlogHer.  I’m ashamed to have ordered that runner necklace back in August.

I know, of course, that it won’t last.  I will find my healthy lungs again, even if it takes a round of steroids to get them.  I will sign up for that trial health club membership and start working out by work/daycare, even if it means leaving M in daycare a little longer some days.  I will suck it up and be Jillian’s bitch once again.

I will write a post about all of this because I know that while I am off my game, I have made too many changes in my life, and I have enjoyed finding out that I am a runner too much to just let it go now.

That doesn’t mean that it isn’t hard, to find yourself when you’ve lost your way.

Since the meal planning (except for that one week when everything went to hell) has helped me stay on track a little bit, I’m going to start exercise planning at the same time.  Meal plan posts tomorrow (I already have it done!) but here is my exercise plan for this week.

Monday: Run/walk 3 miles (trying to ease back in to it as my lungs will allow)

Tuesday: Go to the park with M

Wednesday:  Run/walk 3 miles (this may be the last week with enough daylight)

Thursday: Go to the park or Shred

Friday: Rest

Saturday: Go to the park with M

Sunday: Shred or Gym (starting my membership this week I think)

    I was in a slump starting in May through September. Seriously. I kept going through the motions (for the races that I was actually signed up for) but the “heart” wasn’t there. I’m happy to have found my mojo again – and so running has now become fun again for me, as it will for you.

    I agree with Kari—-you will find it again. I have been “off” since May and really have been slacking at running (or any exercise, really)—I think I have the commitment, it’s the time I can’t seem to figure out. And desire to push myself. Sigh. It’s hard and pisses me off b/c I follow the SAME pattern I have all my life. And I always end up back at Square One, though maybe my square moves forward slightly every time?

    Good luck to you! You’ll get there b/c you are thinking about it and that is more than many do!
