I decided I do not like February. It’s a pesky month that makes winter linger longer while holding spring just out of arms reach. Every year, I get antsy for running around in spring weather and getting to back to my digging in the dirt sessions. The cold, dreary weather really puts me in a funk. It feels like forever since I last posted on here. Realistically, it’s only been twelve days. Last month I was on such a high with blasting goals and getting in as many work outs as possible. But something happened. It feels like I hit a wall. I did pass my plank PR on 2/1 (2:10!) but after that, I lost steam. Last week, Dan was traveling. I was getting out of work 15-30 minutes late, waking up late… Life just feels off kilter. I am still doing great with what I am eating. I am even trying new food combos and other snacks to keep things interesting. I have also been reading more about the whole clean eating thing. But workouts? Fugetaboutit. My plank a day, which BTW I can’t seem to focus on to even come close to 2 minutes, is still happening most days. However, I have slacked on everything else. The squat portion of that challenge is almost nonexistent and workouts at home didn’t happen at all last week! It’s not that I am not motivated. I mentally prepare for my WOs while at work. Some days it is all I think about. But when I get home, it all fizzles out. It frustrates the hell out of me. This is why I declared this week I would be taking it back! No food will be cooked in my house until I get some kind of WO in! Yesterday, I needed a good stretch so I did yoga for 30 minutes after work. Sure, we didn’t eat until 7:00. BUT I felt great and I was much more relaxed. Sometimes life gets in the way and I know this will pass. We have two and a half weeks until the roar of March. I hope I can turn things around before then!
