Injured Hip Flexor and Motivation Gone to Shit

My motivation is at an all time low.  I am depressed as a muthafuker.  I feel so sad.  I can’t break free.  My current weight is the highest it’s been in close to 10 years.  My back fat is flopping about like crazy.  I’ve only managed to convince myself to go to BJJ 2 times in the last 3 weeks.  I went on Monday and injured my hip flexor somehow.  It hurts like a son-of-a-bitch.  I still go to the gym almost every day, but the workouts are forced.  I can’t wait to get out of there.  All the fun is gone.  I just want to stay in bed…

  1. I don’t have any clever words of comfort for you – but I’d say hang on in there. It will get better. You don’t HAVE to train, particularly if it’s no fun for now. Take time out. Go find a friend to hang out with. Do something different for a while.

    Don’t worry aboutyour weight. Weight gained can be lost again. I took off over 70lbs a couple of years back at the ripe old age of 52. I did it when the time was right and I was ready to go at it and not before. When you’re ready to venture back in the gym/on the mat, that weight will start to shift.

  2. I can empathize two thoughts come to mind. 1) Push yourself through it. Double up on classes. I teach so I can’t take off, but I feel better once I start rolling. 2) Life is too short and just do what you want to do. Right now I feel like option 2.
