Lacking motivation

February 16, 2012 in workout,yoga

Confession: I’ve been in a serious workout funk.

I’ve always been religious about working out, both with gym workouts and with regular yoga classes.

And lately I just find myself lacking motivation almost entirely.

There have been workouts, but they are not nearly as intense as they were just a couple months ago. I tend to workout “better” in the early mornings, but a combination of cold/snowy weather and weird illnesses I’ve had have left most of my workouts to be, for lack of a better term, half-assed evening workouts. Yuck.

I know this semi-gym-hiatus will likely be short-lived, but I’m just so bummed about being in a slump.

Anyone else suffer from the gym/winter blues?

For now, I’ll be fighting my way through my gym/winter blues with lots of sleep, healthy eats, drinking some tea, and snuggling with a couple of puppies.

I’m exactly in the same situation as you, couldn’t have happened at a worse time 🙁

I have been in a workout funk for about a month now. I cannot find the motivation to go to the gym at all. I’ve also been doing a ton for the wedding and my volunteer work so I rarely have time in the evenings. I don’t think this crazy winter has helped either, but I’m hoping that next week I can find my motivation again!

*raising my hand* i am a stickler for schedules. I work out each day at 11 at work in the gym. if anything throws this off, a meeting, late breakfast so i cant run yet, anything, i skip my workout, and “ill go later”.

I have been here the last week and a half, and i hate it. the longer i miss workouts the harder it is to go.
