In a Slump, Not a Funk

I just celebraed my ten year anniversary with the hubby. We decided it was time to leave the kids for a week and go on a vacation. We headed to St. John Virgin Islands. The picture above still doesn't do it justice. We had a relaxing vacation snorkeling, and lounging on the beach. It was AMAZING to say the least! I came home all jazzed and ready to hit the exercise hard again, but I hate to admit, I am in a slump (very different than a funk) While I feel the motivation, I am exhausted. How do I get in gear when all I want to do is crash on the couch? I read Trainer Momma's recent post on traveling:


So good! While I am so used to throwing in the towel and eating whatever I want on vacation, it doesn't feel so good anymore. Time to readjust my way of traveling.
As a side note, are you wondering how to buy a good running shoe? Check this article out:


  1. i'm always exhausted after a vacation... even when they are "relaxing". when did you get home? the time difference may still be throwing you off :)
    so glad you had a wonderful trip!

  2. After our cruise, I struggled with lack of motivation to get moving for three weeks. I get how you are feeling! Finally got off my backside with the 120 mile challenge and walking in the mornings with Kristi. Come join us? You've been doing so well with your exercise and running lately, I'm sure you'll get out of the slump before long!
