I'll be honest.

This week my body has been in a funk.


I blame two things:

one. I remember the first time I put on a pair of jeans after having Alivia. I remember bending down for the first time and pulling them up like-a-normal-person for the first time in a couple months and a pain went down my leg. A pain that I believe is a pinched nerve. Well, I am still struggling with that pain today, and running just doesn't sound appealing at all.

two. At the beginning of August I set a goal to only weigh myself 4-times-this-month. This has been the hardest thing about the month. Seeing that number everyday gets me going, and not seeing that number has kept me on the couch.

Something needs to change. I got new running shoes for my birthday, I have two 5K's to run in September, I am fitting into my pre-Alivia clothes (with a muffin top and a belly bulge, but things are still zipping!) I am out of the 150's: these are all things that should be motivating me, but for some reason my hiney is on the couch right now.

Maybe your motivation will get me going! What's motivating you?

Get moving today.


  1. I hate that you have that pain right now, Patrick's knee has been doing some crazy pains as well lately, which has set us back. I think my motivation has been the way I have been feeling after my workouts. I feel that I acutely am improving and challenging myself. When you don't want to work out, just think of how good you will feel afterwards that you completed your workout and how refreshed you feel. Don't get caught up in how long it is, just do something. You look so good Megan, don't be so hard on yourself! Enjoy working out, don't think of it as if you "have" to do it. Get it girl, I know you have it in you!

  2. I know it seem small but it is such a great feeling to get those pre baby clothing zipped even if extra stuff is hanging Hang in there you are doing great!!!

  3. You are a rockstar! Don't get too down on yourself quite yet! You are doing great things through running, blogging, & inspiring! Your humble honesty & determined mind set is what impacts so many! Everyone has times like these but it's what you do about those times that makes the difference! Stretch & take it easy... but don't give up! :) I believe in you!

  4. You are an inspiration to many, especially me. Thank you for being honest about the days you don't want to exercise. That helps.
