taking a break

Lately it seems when I sit down to right my 'move it monday' post, I don't feel compelled to write anything.  Honestly I haven't really been running much lately, or doing anything besides walking.  I'm still getting in at least five workouts a week, but a lot of times those workouts are just a long walk.  And that is ok.

What I'm trying to say is right now I'm in a bit of fitness slump, and instead of coming here each week and whining about it, I think I'm going to take a little break from the 'move it monday' posts.  If I have something to share, no worries I'll pop it in.  But I'm just not going to make myself feel guilty for not wanting to write anything.

For the record, I'm kind of ok with all of this.  There will be a lot of times in life that I can't or won't want to give 110% to fitness, and that is completely fine, as long as I don't completely jump off the deep end.  I'm still trying to make healthier food choices, and trying to keep moving.  My speed is just slowing down for the moment.

Anyway, so thats that.  I'd still love to read about your health and fitness adventures.  They are incredibly motivational to me.  So share links in the comments or on my facebook wall if you'd like.


Have a good one.

I'm with ya. I stopped linking up quite a few weeks (maybe months) ago because i felt the same way. Still getting up and going, but I don't really feel like talking about it anymore. I think it's a summer thing, too. It's hot, and I'm sure it's not as fun to run outside!

i've stopped linking for a while now too. partly because i found out i was pregnant in april, but just walking doesn't make me want post every monday. my training begins when i get my clearance after this baby is born. signed up for my first 1/2 for june 2013! i will enjoy this time while it lasts ;)

I'm glad you are feeling okay about this. I have been taking my workouts down a notch as well lately, still working out regularly, just not as hard. Part of it has to do with the busyness of summer of course, but also, I think we all just need a little break now and then. Enjoy yours!

I have been feeling the same way. Having a hard time getting excited about logging my walks, and occasional swims. I haven't run at all in a few weeks now. I miss it! Glad you are ok with it, and hope that you are otherwise doing well!

I think it's funny cause I feel the same way but it's summer time. So I feel I should be more motivated. But I'm just not. I think chasing after a 2 year old totally counts as fitness.
