I'm lacking motivation. Ideally I would go to the gym 4 times a week; Monday through Thursday after work. In all honesty, what is there to do after work on a work night? Why not stop at the gym on the way home, get in a long [or short] workout and feel good about yourself.
I swear I'm the master at coming up with lame excuses for skipping the gym. Thing is... once I get into a routine, of even like a week, I'm back in it full strength and make it there at least 2-3 times a week. I'm having a hard time getting that one or two solid weeks in to develop the routine. The other night I told myself I was skipping the gym, but that I'd go home and do this, that, and the other thing to remain active and [sort of] compensate for not going; last night it was Wii Sports [boxing specifically].
I actually have a lot going on this week because I'm house sitting for a week starting Saturday and I really won't be close enough to stop home if I need something. So I've been doing laundry and preparing for that, trying to do some mid-winter cleaning of our crawl space... and on top of those things, I've been extremely tired this entire week because a certain person insists on keeping me up past my bedtime of 9:00pm.
So, at the house I'll be at there is a Wii, so happens there is also Wii Fit, which I have no idea how to use, but plan to use it everyday, since there is not one of my gyms near by. There is also a treadmill and a Bowflex that I can use if the Wii Fit isn't rocking my world. I'm hoping that I'll have the motivation since I'll really have nothing else going on.
I want to be in shape, I want to look good, I want to feel comfortable in my body... I'm just having a hard time getting there once the end of the day rolls around.
So... Thoughts for Thursday: Do you workout? How often? What types of things do you do? What motivates you when you're feeling lazy? I need help here people... I need motivation! I'm also curious what things you've found that work for you and for what areas of your body they help?
If you don't exercise, why don't you?
