I’ve been on such a roll.
Blogging consistently. Losing weight. Running faster.
I feel like I’ve lost my mojo. My motivation. Whatever you want to call it.
I wish I could figure out why. Maybe it’s because I finally fit back in my pre-pregnancy clothes? Maybe it’s because I achieved my dream of running a half marathon? (Two actually).
I think it all comes down to this – I’ve hit that “maintenance” phase of life. And quite frankly, I’ve never been good at maintenance. I’m a much better “project person.” I’m good at setting goals and working toward them. I’m good at checking things off a list.
But this maintenance thing? Not so easy for me.
You would think with a half marathon coming up in less than two weeks, I’d be motivated. Training hard. Pushing through. But I’m not. I haven’t run more than 6.5 miles since my last half marathon – the Disney Princess Half a month and a half ago. That’s a problem, my friends. Especially since my half marathon will likely be sunny and hot and has some seriously challenging bridges (Florida’s version of hills). I haven’t done any bridge work.
You would also think that with my blog growing tremendously in the past few months (thank you!), I’d be a blogging machine. But honestly? I feel like I’ve lost my mojo there too. Maybe it’s tied into the maintenance thing. Quite frankly, when I’m not working out and accomplishing new goals, I have a hard time finding things to write about. But maybe that’s exactly when I need to be writing.
You all have been such a source of encouragement to me over the past two years I’ve been blogging. So I’m turning to you again.
What do you do when you’ve lost your mojo? Any advice for me?
