After a year and a bit of working out, for the first time, my motivation has tanked. It was like someone flipped a switch. I feel like I could walk away and never look back. I doubt I will, but the very fact that I have this feeling surprises me.
I have heard others talk about how hard it is to get motivated to get to the gym or do whatever form of exercise they do, and I have listened, nodding... but not understanding. After I finally got comfortable in the gym, I looked forward to it... "Sarah time".
But now... I get it.
Dragged my sorry ass into the gym today, wanting to be anywhere else. I burned through a quickie workout in 45 minutes... No way I could stand my usual 1.5 to 2 hours in there.
Maybe it's that my chiropractor has been on holidays for 2 weeks and my entire body feels shattered. Maybe it's that I had every intention of being outside running this summer and injury has prevented that... and I feel "stuck" inside... Maybe it's that I'm just bored of my current workout...
Don't really know.
I was talking to A. about it today. She said, "Your motivation can't have tanked! You're my inspiration!"
Truth be told, I think we are each other's inspiration. She's one of my heroes, as much in fitness as in life.
Today she accompanied me on a little expedition which may help me to get out of the rut... Dunno...
In the meantime, I am left wondering what the hell has happened... ?
