mojolessness

I’m suffering from mojolessness! Or at a minimum my mojo is a bit faded. I’m not sure when it happened , but I gotta get it back to 100%…

After doing a little googling, I’ve discovered that I’m not the only one that this has happened to. It’s amazing the information you can find online these days. Mainly I found several blogs by others talking about the same thing… One day I had my mojo and the next day it was mysteriously gone. What happened to it? Where did it go?

It started last week on Tuesday or Wednesday. I took a trip into this philosophical place (in my head). I did not come back the same. What’s so frustrating is that the problem is no doubt IN MY HEAD! My body did not change in a few days but my state of mind did. This has affected my workouts and not for the better. I’ve lacked energy and oomph! I always have oomph! And now…all of the sudden my oomph is MIA.

I want my mojo back! I’m wondering if I have to take another trip to that philosophical land (which I was really glad when I snapped out of it on Friday) to get my mojo back. My only explanation is that I left it there and now I need to go rescue it. Or can I just snap my fingers or click my heals together and get it back, kindof like I’m Dorothy of the Wizard of Oz?

What does it matter? You are wondering. Without my mojo my workouts lack energy and I cheat…like eating chips and the yummy beans at Cabo on Saturday night. Did you look at my nutrition numbers above? That’s NO MOJO!!!

It took every ounce of self-restraint I have to not drive to the grocery store last night and buy a jar of peanut butter, which is why I don’t keep it in the house. If I had it in the house there’s no doubt I would have had at least 6 tablespoons last night. Honestly writing about peanut butter just brought the damn cravings back – yikes!

My cardio workout this morning lacked energy. It got better after the first 30 minutes. I hate to give this any more time than I already have. I really want to help motivate the world to win the fitbattle. The truth is this is an important part of the battle…fighting through mojolessness. It’s not all sunshine and roses. There are bad days and bad weeks.

What am I going to do about it? For one…I’m not going back into my head to that philosophical place – NO WAY! I am going to continue to fight the cravings and try to get to bed earlier the next few nights so I get a good night’s sleep. I also have a little project that I’ve been thinking about (making a desk – ambitious? yes) that I’m going to start working on tomorrow in hopes that a little manual labor helps me snap out of this funk.

Right now…I’m going to get ready for spin class. Maybe that will help me snap out of it.

Until tomorrow! Kathi

    Kathi, I hope you get your mojo back quickly. Fight for it!!! I lost mine and ended up with a 4 month exercise and good eating hiatus. It’s been 4 weeks since I got back to my normal routine and it took at least 2 1/2 weeks to look forward to a workout instead of forcing myself to do it.

    Hi Regina, I’m definitely not planning on a long-term mojolessness. Good for you fighting to get back and thanks for the encouragement! Kathi
