One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Fighting the Funk

3 Comments 1054 views

Let me start by saying, I don’t know what’s up with me. I really have had NO desire to write, journal, eat good, or even get out of bed for the last few days. I’m just NOT motivated. As everyone knows, especially those with kids, you just gotta deal but boy I’ve been kinda miserable. I just feel off and in a funk. That’s about the only way I can describe it.

Let’s see, what’s been going on?

  • We had a little get together on Saturday for the toddlers 3rd birthday. For the food spread I stuck with mostly healthy options of Simple Homemade Hummus (I added some roasted red pepper – YUM), fresh cut veggies, cut up whole wheat pitas, baked tortillas, salsa, a cold cut platter with with whole wheat buns, and to wash it down, my healthy party punch! The hummus and punch were both big hits which made me SO happy, the only thing that competed with them was the chicken nugget platter I ordered from Chick-Fil-A. It really was the hit of the party!
  • The toddler and I posted a fun chicken salad video this week on GreenLiteBites, and I’ve been loving the leftovers!
  • Speaking of GreenLiteBites, the cookbook is in full production! My plan is a small photo filled book with about 35 recipes, separated by meals. I have another meeting on Tuesday to brainstorm the design a bit more. I’ll keep you posted on that!
  • I didn’t make it to weigh in this week and I won’t be able to make it again this week. I probably should but I really have no desire with this funk I’m in. That should be a sign to go, shouldn’t it? *sigh*
  • BlogToLose is now over 600 members! I have a few ideas for scheduled chats and more activities. I just wish I had more time to get in there!
  • I had my first experience running in the heat tonight. Oh my WORD, this crazy heat wave is nuts! I missed the gym this morning as I took the toddler to the movies and I really wanted to get some activity in. So I took it nice and easy and stayed close to home, getting a mile and half in. Of course I used my new favorite gadget! Here’s the run…

My Run

I know I had a few other things to tell you but now I can’t remember. That’s what I get for holding off on the journal entry. This funks got a hold and I’m trying my darnedest to shake it off! Writing this actually helped a little. Sometimes taking a minute to access what’s going on helps but things in prospective.

Until tomorrow.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    could it be a simple as youre exhausted? you are doing so much and, as always, SO WELL that it has to be fatiguing.

    also, FOR ME, when I owned my training studio and was busy working managing and writing (a book with went along with some protein we private labeled) I almost didnt have it in me any longer to cook my own CLEAN FOOD or train my OWN BOD.
    I was so tired/sick of it from thinking about it all the time for others.

    just my .02 in case it triggers any YES YES THAT’S HOW I FEEL moments :)

    I have always struggled with a bit of post race funk. It usually takes me a few days to find my groove again. Good luck! I hope you get back into the swing of things soon.

    I have been feeling down, tired and groggy lately also. I think it is the weather, I live in Michigan and it has been dark and rainy for over a week. I blame it on humidity…and the air pressure!
