When you’re out of the groove

I wanted to write this post about how to get re-motivated when you’ve lost your spark, but sadly I don’t actually have any advice to give as I am trying to discover this myself.

I have been away from my general fitness lifestyle routine and all social media for a little while due to multiple changes and stressors in my life that I am dealing with.

I’ve mentioned before, I recently moved, which has been great, I am loving the new place. I am now in the throws of what is looking like is going to be a complicated divorce. It’s not fun, its greatly affected many aspects of my life and has many things difficult.

My father passed away sort of unexpectedly a couple of weeks ago and that too has really thrown me off my game. I’ll admit that I have felt the ugly feeling of depression of the past month or so and it’s really wearing down on me.

I know what I need to do. I need to again look to exercise and helping others as my passion. I need to get back to the gym and start slow and remember that It is good for my physical and mental well-being.

Next week I start two new classes, Wellness and Introduction to Community Health. Both of these are in line with my goals and should be very helpful and informative. I’ve also joined my company’s Wellness Committee; I am looking forward to making Wellness a cornerstone of my life once again.

  1. It sounds like your life has been completed flipped upside down in the past few weeks. How do you find motivation to work out when you are depressed and dealing with so much? It’s hard! Don’t beat yourself up over it. Just know that it will come with time, and starting your new classes. Good luck! I hope things start looking up soon!
