Every so often the funk hits.

 

No, not like a foot funk or a smelly funk. It's the kind of funk where you feel like you are just going through the motions. The kind of funk where the intensity... the drive... the motivation to work out just isn't there. Where did it go? I feel like lately I have had a mild case of The Funk. My eating has been decent... of course it could be better (a pecan pie got the better of me this weekend). I have been sweating a little each day (half hearted attempts at sweating). It's not like I don't have goals to work towards. As of late, I would rather stay home and bake all things pumpkin spice and hangout in my onesie than workout. But the tiny voice of reason reminds me that trying to be Martha Stewart in my PJs just won't cut it, and that I need to go workout (also the fact that I work in the fitness industry and not working out just doesn't make sense). Does anyone else get the funk? Or am I the only one?

I think The Funk is starting to diminish. I can see the light at the end of The Funk tunnel!  My motivation is slowly but surely coming back. Fun Fact: I have the same number of hours in the day as Serena Williams soooooo... that should be enough motivation to get up and get going. My fitness fire is being stoked and it's getting ready to start blazin'! I HAVE GOALS TO REACH! Complacency and going through the motions will get me nowhere. The end of 2014 is fast approaching and I want to end the year feeling accomplished and strong. Also, coming up is the holiday season that is filled with delicious pies and casseroles. I don't want to enter this season unmotivated and fall victim to consuming an excessive amount food. It's time to get going.
