How do I get my motivation back? I think it took a vacation with the Sun. Neither one is visiting me lately. It is very depressing.

Sounds to me like you need to be your own sun. Have you tried switching up your workout? Sometimes the excitement of something new is enough to get me motivated. I know yesterday for me was one of the longest days at work, because I was so excited to get home and start the Crunches and Punches challenge. On my way home, I had to make a few stops and I almost lost the drive to do my workout when I got home, but I remembered how I felt all day and let that rekindle the flame. Maybe you can tap into a time when you were extremely motivated and that will help you get through today.

I know what you mean about the sun not visiting lately. As for the motivation, are you keeping up on your vitamins? B-complex is great along with a good one-aday and I like B-12. Might be worth a try. Hope your day improves and love the flowers.:)

Vitamin D and omega-3 oils are supposed to be good for mood. Also, just making yourself do something can boost your mood because you'll feel proud of yourself when you accomplish something.
