Forcing Myself Out of a Funk

I have been in a horrible funk these past few days. I am deciding to force myself out of the funk because I refuse to be held back any longer!


I have joined a challenge for the month of July called the Summer Roadtrip Challenge. This challenge originated in the PCOS and Losing Weight team on Sparkpeople.com. It is called the Summer Roadtrip Challenge because at the end of the challenge, we will add up all of our fitness miles to see how far of a roadtrip we can take with our miles combined! This challenge is broken up in to three parts:

Part 1 - Non-fitness challenge.  

Part 2 – Fitness Challenge.

Part 3 - Food Challenge.

> For the non-fitness challenge this week, we were asked to set some goals. We were given 5 questions. These were my answers:

Question 1: What is one fitness related goal you hope to reach by the end of this challenge?
Answer: I would like to have “traveled” 20 miles by the end of this challenge.

Question 2: What is one nutrition goal you have set for yourself for this challenge?
Answer: Starting today, I would like to limit dining out to once a week during this challenge.

Question 3: What is one personal goal you set for yourself?My personal goal is to blog at least 5 times a week for the remainder of this challenge.

Question 4: What are you going to use (if anything) to reward yourself if you meet your goals?
Answer: I will reward myself with something small of my choosing once I have accomplished my goals.

Question 5: What motivational picture will you use during this challenge?
Answer: My motivational picture is actually a quote, “If we do what we have always done, we will stay the way we always have been.”

> For the fitness challenge this week, we were asked to complete at least 1 mile this week. I haven’t done this yet, but I have until July 7th to get my mile in. I am declaring right now, that my personal goal is to do more than 1 mile!

> For the food challenge this week, we were asked to try one new recipe this week, incorporating a fruit or vegetable. I haven’t done this yet, but I plan to try something new by the end of this challenge week!

I am hoping that this new challenge will be just what I need to help get me out of my funk. It’s always refreshing to have new goals to strive for! Don’t worry though; I am still keeping my Big Bridesmaid Challenge in mind. I’ve got 5 more weeks to go with that challenge before my friend’s wedding on August 11th!
