How Recent Was The Last Time You Felt Like Not Exercising?

Staying motivated week after week, month after month, year after year - it's hard work.

Didn’t feel like running this morning. Didn’t feel like going to the gym the other day either. These demotivating feelings come and go with variable frequency, and are short lived because I always feel better after the workout. But the frequency (of not wanting to workout) can sometimes be weekly. Can you relate?

  1. Weekly? Sometimes it’s daily. When the number on the scale either fails to move lower or goes up, I wonder why is it that I’m exercising. Then I remind myself to think about my health if I didn’t exercise at all. Every little bit helps.

  2. Absolutely.
    I try to mollify it by blaming the fact that I don’t want to get up, but do want to run.
    Either way, it’s laziness and lack of self-control!

  3. Craig, it’s so unlike yourself to say that last sentence. In fact, there’s a decent chance you may never say (or think) that thought again – because it is so unlike you.

    Say it with me, “It’s so unlike me, it’s so unlike me, it’s so unlike me…”
