Fitness Friday-Where's My Motivation?

Have you been looking for new blogs to read?  Interested in fitness and a healthy lifestyle?  Head over to Jill's Fitness Friday Blog Hop.  I love reading about different workouts, everyone's individual struggles and triumphs and people involved in this blog hop are so supportive!  Check it out!

I've been back from my vacation for almost two weeks now and I still haven't gotten motivated to work out.  In these past two weeks, I worked out only two days--1.75 miles (does that even count?) and Jackie Warner's 40 Minute Power Circuit.  I just have no motivation.

Now there have been surrounding factors that have made it a little more difficult but, let's face it, when it comes to my fitness it is MY responsibility. I have stayed on top of my eating which has become somewhat second nature now but the motivation to get up and put out any energy is just not there.  I guess maybe I stayed in that vacation relaxation mode

I'm hoping by reading everyone's blogs today that I will get that desire again. 

My biggest motivation for working out over the past 6 months has been knowing that I was going to be in a bathing suit for 6 straight days.  Everytime I wanted to skip a workout, I would just think "bathing suit, bathing suit, bathing suit" and immediately I would hop up and do it.  But now that the vacation is over, I feel like I just need a break . . . which is a bad thing.

Maybe I need to start planning another beach vacation?  Hmmm . . .

What do you do to get yourself motivated after a break?



  1. I do the same thing after a vacation. Horrible, right?

    I'm going to have to bookmark that blog to read here in the next couple of months.

    Maybe now you can be motivated to stay in shape so you can be a bit easier on yourself through the holidays? I know it always makes me feel great to know that even thought I indulge more than I should, at least the scale isn't reflecting that!

  2. The mirror is a great motivator! I look healthier, even in the face, when I'm working out.

  3. I think everyone does that after a vacation. I usually sign up for a race to get my booty going because I hate to be unprepared for a race.

    New here from the blog hop!

  4. i totally use health-related blogs to find motivation. Seems like I can always find a powerful story of inspiration and then one workout and I'm BACK!!! Good luck to ya, I think we all do that from time to time.

  5. It amy seem silly but a little time on Pinterest. Great great great motivation! And reading health and fitness blog and magazines work too.

    No worries. You'll get your mojo back!

  6. I know how you feel after I've been away it's hard to get back into but the main thing is you want to so plan something nice to aim for :)

  7. Often seeing what other fitness-minded people are up to gives me the motivation to jump back into the game. Good luck :)
