Finding Motivation after a Long Weekend


sangria Let’s just be honest here, I love LOVE LOVE Sangria. I tried my hand on making some this weekend, and literally had a glass in my hand all afternoon/evening. As a result, I was not interested in doing my good morning run of 4 miles at 5:45 this morning, and it got postponed to after work. 😦 Bad runner that I am. I also got a pretty awesome sunburn, which didn’t help in my current state of dehydration… so I’m carrying my water around all day today!
Anyone else suffering from a lack of motivation after a fun, sunny long weekend? It’s so easy for me to let the long weekend attitude last all week, and find myself with an entire week of no or pitiful workouts!

This is my plan of attack for getting back on track, thank you Bonnie Pfiester for the motivation…
Get back on track… if that means getting on the scale to assess the damage, then get on there! Don’t obsess about your weight, but let the extra pound(s) gained work as a motivator to get back on the track and watch the food you put in your mouth.

Scale back on portion sizes, which will get your metabolism back to normal. Don’t stop eating the day after you pigged out, your body will hold onto those calories and inhibit your weight loss. Not cool.

This is what I’m working on today- drinking a lot of water. It flushes out the toxins and hydrated my dehydrated body. Drink as much water as you can handle for the next couple days, and you’ll be regulated in no time!
