Pushing through the Lazy

Thursday, October 29, 2009

I have a group of friends from all over the country. We all meet on a weight loss site. We have never met. We email every day. They are great and we keep eachother motivated.

I ask them on a daily basis who is 'going to work out with me tonight.' Just knowing that they will be working out makes me go to the gym or pop a workout video in. I don't want to let them down. They are my cross country workout buddies.

Yesterday when I asked one girls answer was she wasn't going because she was lazy. At least she was honest. But it gave me motivation. I don't want to say that I gained weight or haven't lost anything because I was too lazy to go to the gym.

Now don't get me wrong, I don't always want to the gym. However, after work it is a good stress reliever. But yesterday, I had no motivation to go to the gym and needed one of the girls to 'go with me.' By the responses it looked as though I was on my own. I am my own workout buddy and if I don't kick my own butt, who will? I went to the gym. I did the cardio machine for half hour then I did some upper body weight machines. Then I went home.

Maybe it wasn't the best workout I have gotten but I was proud of myself. I pushed through the lazy. I will make my goal because I pushed myself. No one else will!

    Woot woot go Rosie! Maybe I can figure out something so that I can go to the gym with you... I know for sure once Josh finishes getting my car track ready and his car track ready he will be around a lot more so I can leave Olivia with him for an hour while I am at the gym.. maybe for now I can just go walk during the day and that can be your motivation to go to the gym when you get off!

  Nice job being your own work out buddy - sometimes it's hard but you feel so much better after. emoticon

    I'm proud of you. I have been wrestling the old motivation thing for the past week. You are an inspiration to all! Keep it up...
