I don’t know if it’s just the summer slump or what, but I seriously can’t get motivated. AT. ALL.
Each evening I make my plan that involves getting up early and heading to the gym with the kiddos, but each morning my alarm goes off and I quickly turn it off and snuggle back down under the covers.
I just have no giddy in my up.
I know that this is something I need to conquer. No one can really help me with this. I have to be able to find that willpower to motivate myself. I need to find the woman that was inside of me less than a year ago, that truly had the desire, the want, the NEED, to get up and get moving each day.
Sadly, right now I think that woman has been eaten by the one that likes to sleep in and eat cookies.
Looking back I realize that I actually hit a similar slump last summer as well, though it wasn’t quite this bad. I was able to drag myself out of that one when my kids went back to school and I’m hoping that that happens this year as well, but I can’t help but be saddened that I can’t find the wherewithal to get my butt into gear NOW.
Do you find yourself drifting into slumps at certain times? What do you do to fight it?
