I can totally relate to this. I get extremely fidgety when I don't work out. Some one once said to me, you don't have to feel guilty if you don't work out. You know the thing was it had nothing to do with feeling guilty. I had the energy to burn and needed to burn it. I've never had so much energy and I'm loving it!
In this day and age we are all looking for that quick fix, the miracle pill. By trial and error many of us have realised that it doesn't exist. So what is a person to do when the impossible doesn't happen? There is something to be said for good ol' fashioned hard work. My issue with exercise has always been the consistency thing. I will do well for a few days and then I loose desire and motivation to continue. I'm pretty sure I was getting bored and wasn't really exercising for the right reasons to keep me motivated. Well, I am here to say that I have finally gotten over that mountain! It is said that when your body gets into the habit of doing something it will get "upset" if you try to change things. Over the last few weeks I have been going for runs in the morning and last sunday I decided that it was going to be my day off since I had run the last two weeks. Well, I was working on my computer and I was all fidgety and couldn't sit still. I felt like I needed to run or do something! I finally feel like its not a constant struggle and argument with myself in the mornings and I enjoy the competition with myself to see if I can cut down my time. I never thought I would get to this point and can only hope that everyone else who has been in my position of not staying motivated can be where I am now. I not only am losing weight and improving my endurance and health, but I have more energy, am in a better mood, and feel more productive during the day! This feeling rock and hopefully its contagious!
