MMM..a link up...I need help

It's Sunday night and I'm thinking about what to write....
What can I say to motivate you today when I'm lacking in motivation myself.

I have been putting this post off all week.
I keep asking Jayson..."What should my topic be on"
 Everything we discuss I don't feel passionate about. 
I feel like anything I write would be a lie. 

Usually my posts are on what I accomplished through out the week.
What I'm feeling good about. 

This week I feel like I ate decent. 
I drank a fare amount of water.
I went on a few walks with the kids...

But I just feel like I could have done better in every area.

I have a desire to be motivated.
I want to get out and get healthy.

I even got the OK from my doctor to start exercising again since Ember has been born. 
I have been looking forward to this for a long time. 
A part of me is SOOO happy.
I love to exercise. I love to run. lift weights. do korny work out videos. 

I love it all.
So why am I struggling to actually do it???

Why can you want to do something so bad and not do it.

I felt bad at the beginning of this post...
I felt like I am the HOST, I should always be positive and motivate you...

But then I just wouldn't be human.
I couldn't force myself to write a lie. 

So there it is. I'm struggling at the moment. 
I need your encouraging words this week...

Here is a small quote I wrote on the 

It's so much easier to be healthy and work out when you have friends and motivators along side you. 
Whatever your goals may be....we can be here to help each other.

So there it is...
anyone go through this at times??
Did you have a hard time getting back into working out after having a baby?

Please share so I know I'm not the only one.

  1. I know how you feel - sort of. I have not had a baby, but have been so caught up with work that all forms of exercise have gone completely out the window and I am now feeling so awful and frumpy.

    But as you say, taking that first step is always the hardest part. I need to get back into routine and back to my healthy active self.
    So as a first step i have signed up to a ladies bootcamp and now cannot wait for it to start!

    love your blog


  2. It's hard to get back into something once you have had a long break especially after having a baby. You are not the only one. Plus taking care of a new baby is alot of work and tiring. I think the best way to get started is to just force yourself to do it and get back into a routine. Good luck. :)

  3. just found your blog via the bloghop. I loveit! I will definitely be back.

  4. Visiting from the RTF blog hop! I would love to link up, but I'm definitely at the really want to do it but haven't phase so I don't have any related posts. I'm gonna work on that so I can link up next time. I'm following via GFC, hope you'll visit and return the favor.

  6. Oh Girl..
    I think this post was for me!
    I have been struggling. I want so badly to be healthy but my motivation has fallen off a cliff. I want to be healthy with my next pregnancy. Before, During, and After.
    I'm glad I am not the only on struggling.
    You are strong and I know you will be looking absolutely great in no time!!
    Thank you for showing your struggle. I think that helps people too.

  7. is so dang tricky!!
    Sometimes I just don't have it & I do take a break. Other times I just promise myself to start the workout/run and go for 10 mins and then I can stop if I want to..I never end up!

    A couple of weeks ago I was in a real funk, sad, crying , not wanting to work out, feeling crappy..but once I got in a couple of really good workouts & realized how amazing I felt afterwards I found my way back to my regular routine!

    I hope you find your mojo!
