Lacking Motivation...

One problem I have had of late is I am lacking a bit of motivation. It is part of why I haven't posted in a bit.

As of the last few days, I got a shorter run in at the gym on Saturday, a break day happened on Sunday, and  yesterday was a short weight workout; Big Bear took me through some basics! I am not a huge fan of weights, but I am sure going more will help push me.

Yesterday I did a run, and that brings me to my lack of motivation. You know that feeling when nothing seems to be going right? It has been the last week for me. I have had bad sugars (mostly over the last few days) where I am constantly up and down. I have a feeling I am becoming less sensitive to my insulin pump routine, so my carb ratio needs to be smaller. However, I think my correction is too much, because it seems I go low with every correction. Ya, as I said, bad week.

Not only that, but my run didn't go so well. I have been less into running of late. I think it has to do with taking on a 10k that I feel very unprepared for. Also, I have been having pains recently. Every time I run, my foot feels tight and cramped and hurts a lot in the morning of the next day. My hip and shoulder both have had feelings of a pinched nerve. So in general, each time I exercise something else seems to begin to hurt, and bringing myself to run is getting harder. I want to do well in my 10k, but I feel so off of my previous times, I am down on myself.

I want to be excited, I want to get outside, but I want to stop hurting. Tomorrow is a new day! I want to get back in everything, I need to push into the positive thoughts. Sorry for the lack of posting, and positivity, and I will work to come back with something more fun and driven!

Sherlock, my little crested gecko!
For now, enjoy part of what keeps me happy. Big Bear is a huge part of my happiness, but this is a picture of my pet gecko, Sherlock, who always manages to put a smile on my face!


  1. Pain sucks, and it's no wonder you're not feeling motivated if you hurt! I'm no expert on any of it, but maybe you can find a different activity to do for a bit?

    I don't know. But I totally understand about the motivation being lacking.

    1. Thanks Scott! Ya, I know I have to watch the pain, and that is why my runs have been few and far between of late. My run on Tuesday didn't hurt until I got back unfortunately, so I didn't realize it was a problem. Thanks again for the support!
