Winter blues..

Winter is one of the most unmotivated seasons every year for so many reasons.  Did you ever feel like you were in this funk and wonder what the heck can you do to push out?  It happens so much during this time of year.  The holidays kick if off with family in town, traveling, and indulgent foods that throw a wrench in your meal-planning.  When you are not eating right, you will not be motivated to exercise so that gets out of control.  Also, it gets cold and you don’t want to get out of bed.  The flu is also going around!  I myself came down with a head cold starting last Tuesday and finally breaking yesterday.  I had no energy and could not breathe.  In those instances make sure to listen to your body and get the appropriate amount of rest to help you bounce back sooner.  When you start to exercise, start back slowly and don’t get frustrated when little things seem difficult.  It may take you a few weeks to get back to the intensity you were before.  The important thing is that you return as soon as you can.  The longer you wait the harder it will be to return.  Remember you are creating a lifestyle so it has to be part of who you are (not when you just feel like it).  So if you feel like that funk has hit you hard, get back up, start slow, and pull yourself out to get that momentum rolling again.  Your health is that important to you, you got this!

Happy Monday!
