I had gotten injured from sparring. I don't remember how, but my chest hurt badly. It felt like my ribs were ripping away from my sternum. Well, it feels much better now, but it kept me from doing anything really physical.
I also went back to the States to visit my family and friends for a little bit. The problem is that my forced layoff has made it hard for me to get back into the swing of things.
I finally made it to the dojo today, first time in about 2 weeks. I just wanted to know what you all did to get your motivation back from a long layoff.

Being gassed, sloppy, and shamed wasn't enough?
I expect plenty of that. I been off for more than 2 months. :(

i suggest you dig deep inside and rediscover why you are doing MA. if you haven't figure it out, make up one... a temporary fix won't make you succeed for the long haul. unless you got something to measure against, you won't know if you are getting anywhere.
so what's the master plan my man?
Hold me... :3some:
I love MA. Unlike many things in life, you get what you put in.

Well, it's like this. I have aspirations of becoming an amature fighter. I train as best I can, but sometimes I get so frustrated when I get injured or when I cheat on my diet or something. I know there're a lot of people out there who must be training harder than me, so this is what motivates me. Sometimes, I think I should be doing judo or BJJ instead of kickboxing though.

sounds like you got a few questions to answer for yourself
unless you believe you can't learn anymore in kickboxing, i think you should stick with it. when you are able to teach what you learn, that might be a better time to pursue another art.
just my 2 pennies... (though i'm running out of pennies these days)

Well, I've got a lot to learn when it comes to kickboxing. I'm still a beginner and haven't taken enough beatings yet. I hope to teach kickboxing when I get older. I like teaching, because it's fun and it's cool to share with other people. However, for now it's all about me.

having fun is also important. If you don't enjoy what you're doing why DON'T you give Judo or BJJ a try? Maybe that way you can regain your motivation.
And : you can always go back to kickboxing, you'll still be in good shape.
