Being stuck in a Rut SUCKS!
We have all been there, it’s a part of training, but it sucks none the less! Getting stuck in a rut SUCKS!
I tore my bicep about 3 weeks ago (Fluke accident during boxing/sparring) and ever since I just can’t seem to get back on track. I find reasons to avoid the gym (and they aren’t reasons they are excuses lol). So I am digging deep and trying to find the reasoning or motivation to at least get my butt into the gym!!
I feel that some of the reason I can’t get motivated is knowing that my training will be very limited due to my bicep rupture (I need 6-8 weeks of VERY light training to let it recover). I can’t do much boxing or jiu jitsu, which sucks as I really enjoy those workouts. However I could/should be hitting the gym and hitting stretching, legs, cardio etc.
I know what I SHOULD be doing, but doing that is a different story!
In the past I have always found that setting short term goals, or writing goals on paper is a great way to get motivated. So today I am writing some goals for November. They are
– Get down to 185. Currently 192 (7lbs seems like a lot but there is a lot of Halloween choc there that has to go ASAP Lol)
– Hit the treadmill 5 days a week for 20 min interval sessions
– Cut out all junk except for Friday Night (damn Halloween candies got me ruined lol)
– Try to hit some yoga or stretching daily.
Pretty basic simple goals, but it’s better than nothing!
I would love to hear from people here how they have gotten out of a rut or any current goals people have. Please post em up!
