How to Get Your Workout Mojo Back…

I had grand plans when the new year started, which included involving more yoga in my life and getting back on track with lifting weights…

Well on Jan 1 (not kidding) I came down with the flu and was down and out for a solid 4 days, this also happened during one of my busy times at work. The following week (Jan 7-13), I literally was working 12-14 hour days (no working out happened). And now this week is almost over, and I hit the gym once… and am down with a cold once again. I feel a bit discouraged about my dismal workout start to the new year. BUT… I’m determined to turn it around today and this weekend, and continue into next week.

Here’s what I’m hoping to get into the next 10 days, and that writing it down motivates me to keep it up:

Fri jog on treadmill – 30 minutes
Sat GPP Workout
Sun Power Yoga
Mon GPP Workout
Tues GPP Workout
Wed Yoga
Thurs GPP Workout
Fri Rest
Sat GPP Workout
Sun Power Yoga

Lastly, here are some of the things that motivate me when I’m trying to regroup on the workout front. Hope these help you too!

As always, thanks to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting!

Chicken Salad
