I'm in a super exercise slump. I haven't properly worked out in weeks. I ride my bike everyday and move around a lot at work but it's not enough. I'm only maintaining my weight but need to get back on the proverbial bike and keep losing.
I know if I just suck it up and do a great workout, I'll be motivated again (possibly). That's where I'm at this morning, I am all suited up in workout gear and am gonna do it...after I finish this post because this is obviously a procrastination ploy.
One of the big issues is that lately I've been starting work at 5:15am, meaning I get up at 4:20am. Another is that I don't get enough sleep. I would have to go to bed around 8pm to get a full 8hrs of sleep but the sun is still out and I feel like a loser going to bed so early so I end up getting only 5-6hrs of sleep. So when I get off my shift I feel dizzy and sluggish.
I know this is not a big deal, in college I continuously ran on 4-5 hrs of sleep each night but I am really good at talking myself out of things.
How do you de-slump yourselves. Mind you, I do all my exercise at home or by cycling (lol, nice word play). I need to join a gym but haven't put forth the effort because I don't want to deal with pushy sales persons.
Help, push me tell me I need to lose weight, that I am not healthy yet - something! to put me back on track.
