Maya is the Physical Activity Coordinator for DPH.  And needs your advice!

So, I have a question for you.  Have you ever been “good” about getting in your workouts regularly only to then have something throw you off your game?  And, then the worst part… to be off your game for so long that you don’t realize it’s been like, I don’t know, say a month, and now you’re wondering how to just get back into the game (never mind, trying to get back into the game at the level you were previously playing at)? 

I have a confession to make:  this is kind of where I am right now.  And, as a person who’s job title is physical activity coordinator, I feel guilty — really, really guilty — that I haven’t gotten to the gym in a month.  I try and take little lunchtime walks here and there so I’m getting in at least a teeny bit of activity, but truthfully, I’m just not feeling the workouts right now.

Have you experienced this before?  How have you overcome it?  I (personally) could use your advice – and hopefully, others out there will relate to my temporary state of inertia as well, and could use your tips too!
