Excuses, diversions and compromise

Wednesday, February 09, 2011

I am having a motivation problem this week. Well, not the entire week, just yesterday and today. I was not feeling "well" yesterday. I had a sore throat and do have swollen glands. Doctor says probably just viral infection (the second one in a couple of weeks...its getting really old really fast, I want to open windows!!!). So when I got to the hotel room after work yesterday I did not feel like working out at all. Since I did two work outs on Saturday (yoga for 90 minutes and a workout with my Personal Trainer for 60 minutes) and spent a good hour at the gym on Sunday running and strength training and then back again on Monday to do my interval work out taking off yesterday was probably a good thing for me. But here I am today, sitting at my desk with two hours of work left and already I am trying to think of reasons not to work out tonight. I have talked myself down from a long and hard circuit training routine to my short (but potentially difficult) interval routine on the treadmill (might not be a bad idea since I am running a 5 k in 17 days). I am hoping that by the time I get to the hotel room around 6:00 I will not have talked myself out doing any work out. I do not know why I am so lazy this week...I should be motivated and happy. My trip to Disney is coming up in 16 days, I am finished here at this job in 15 days (I finally get to move out of my hotel room which I have had rented since July 8th).

I need to make sure that I do not compromise too much tonight and I actually do get a work out in !

    Feel better soon! The 5k coming up should be motivation enough to get you going and keep you going! emoticon emoticon

    I was just thinking today it is a good idea to have a rest from the workout every now and then. This is yours, embrace it. I love your background where is that?

    It can be so easy to talk ourselves out of just going and getting the work out done..I know - I've been there myself. I hope you got the work out in after all.

    Hope you start feeling better it is a bummer when not 100% I also can understand why you may not be as motivated as you normally are It has to be hard living in a hotel room for all those months I'm sure when you get back to normal life you will truly enjoy yourself Have fun @ Disney
