My mental conversation for the past week has pretty much consisted of snap out of it, get moving, what's causing this blah feeling...just to mention a few. Since I've started this challenge back in February I have not have more than a weak day or two in a row and easily bounced back from it knowing others were counting on me.
This past week I just didn't care. I didn't fall into an eating binge, I didn't completely stop working out but there was no motivation behind what I was doing. I was just going through the motions and discouraged that I could not be there to support others in need.
Mondays always build my weeks foundation. I'm a little OCD about everything that needs to happen on that day...but I was tired and didn't get up to go to the gym. After a day without a workout but accomplishing many things on my list I decided it was time to get out of my funk. One important step to getting out of a funk is knowing what got you there in the first place. This time it was an external factor, one of which I have not control and really shouldn't care about, but I do. But, I realize this and need to move on.
So this morning I was out the door early with Sam in tow and headed for the gym. I got a three mile run in before my yoga class which meant I had to continue to pick up the pace so I could make it to class on time.
As I've mentioned before I love this yoga class. There is just something about this instructor that speaks to me. She always has such profound and real things to say. Today I really needed to hear what she had to say. Here are two that stuck:
1) If you don't take time to get yourself healthy who is?
2) Sometimes you just let life happen to you, when are you going to decide that you can make something out of life, do something about it?
She always ends with a long quote, I almost walked up and asked her for it today...but I was out of time. My two hours of in the kids center were up and I had to move it....RIGHT OUT OF MY FUNK.
