Making a Comeback


This is my first Mamavation Monday post in what feels like forever. Honestly, I have been in a funk for awhile now and did not even realize it. My life feels permanently stuck in a loop-d-loop roller coaster right now. Now that I know I’m in a dark place I have been fighting to get back to the light. This is not only for working out, but my daily life too.

I am no longer able to go to the gym, and missing my favorite Zumba class has been hard on me. I resolved to download the music and do it at home, but it is definitely not the same. I like working out with my friends, which may sound wimpy but that’s just what works for me. I plan on participating in the new 2 week challenge. I’m praying that will help me shake the rest of this dark cloud away.

I haven’t stepped on a scale since the end of the last challenge. In fact at this point, with taking so much time away from the gym, I’m terrified even thinking about it. I just don’t need anymore bad news at this point. Despite the lack of exercise Ihave still been eating right, so I guess that is one positive thing!

I’m looking forward to getting back in the swing of things with my fellow sisters. To all the finalists, you have worked very hard and I can’t wait to see you ladies tonight on Mamavation TV.

  1. And….it even happens to me dear. When I originally lost all the weight, I did it all by myself in my house…then afterward I got used to classes and the energy you get from that and I was addicted. Going back to doing things in my home again by myself has been a challenge. I think it’s just a matter of what you get used to…and I need to experiment…and force myself OUT of the house too to get motivated at times.

  2. Thanks Leah for the love! I miss the energy of the class and the fun of being with my friends. I’m working up to liking my new normal lol

  3. ((hugs)) I’m sorry you are in a dark place. Have you tried taking your workouts outside? That usually brightens my mood, well when the weather permits it does. I hope that your week gets better.

  4. I can understand why you’d want to work out with friends. Everything is more fun with friends!! I think we all get into a funk sometimes. The important thing is that you know you aren’t alone. Good luck this week!!

  5. Thanks! I’m hoping to come out of this soon, it doesn’t even feel good! Frustrating

    everybody gets side tracked. Get back up there and get your butt moving you can do it. Have a great week

  7. Classes are a blast and seems like there is an energy not available at home. Like you i’m not able to hit the gym right now. Have you thought about looking into some fun new videos. Putting music on loud sure helps me.

    Talk to you soon.

    Don’t step on the scale until you’ve had a week or two back in the swing of things. That way, you don’t have to think about the number…just how you feel! Good luck to you!

    It can be tough when your routine changes, you just have to figure out what’s going to work for you now! I hope you come out of your funk soon!

  10. I know EXACTLY how you feel. and have been battling it myself. and it sucks… but identifying the issue is part of the battle for me at least. Baby steps to get back on track… baby steps. Don’t try to take an all or nothing approach. (might be preaching to myself here)

    It happens to the best of us =)
    The best way to get out of a funk is just to throw yourself back into it!
    Hope you have a great week!
