So I need some help–for some reason or another I have been lacking some serious motivation to run/workout! I had two great runs this weekend with Drew and since then I have lost the urge to workout/run/eat healthy. I put in two miles yesterday with Scout thinking that I was going to do another 6 in the evening–but that definitely did not happen. I guess I am just in a small rut (I know it has only been a couple days, but I usually feel the urge to workout rather than working out feeling like a chore!). Maybe its the heat?! I don’t know, but it is certainly frustrating!
When you don’t want to workout–you can always go shopping (walking around shops is walking right?!). Yesterday, I went to a few stores to pick items up for this weekend and I was really just in the mood to get my shopping on. In recent years, it seems like more and more people are dressing causally when going shopping. Growing up, I remember my mom saying that store associates are more likely to assist you if you look nice rather than slumpy (Pretty Woman advice anyone?!). I took the middle road yesterday and dressed in super causal clothes–but not workout clothes!
Reading this article from Marie Claire, totally solidified the idea that it is now appropriate to wear workout clothes in public and not just in the gym (news flash right?!). I don’t think that corporate America is going to jump on that band wagon anytime soon, but I personally think that it is great that society is going more lax on fashion. Mind you, there is always a time and place to dress up and you cannot look like a “slob” all the time but at least we are getting a break!
Last night, Drew was in Kansas for business which meant that Scout and I had the house to ourselves. I absolutely love my husband and definitely missed him, but I will say that there is something nice about having the house to myself every once and awhile! I got to eat when I wanted to, I got to read instead of watching TV, and I went to bed a little later than normal #marriedlife. It was nice to have a night to myself, but I am certainly happy he is home now 🙂
Have a Happy Hump Day!!
What do you do to get out of a workout rut?!
What do you do when you have a couple of nights to yourself?
When do you think the workout clothes fashion era will end?
