Exercise and me

Saturday, December 01, 2012

I have a love hate relationship with exercise. If I let myself off the hook and don't do it, it's then easier to keep going like that. It makes me feel better after I have done it and I feel good that I did it. But while I am doing it I still have the mindset that there is something else I could be doing. And it's not just work, it's that I could be lounging on the computer or reading. I don't like while I am going, I just keep wanting to stop and I don't want to keep going. I was hoping that feeling would go away and that I would "feel it" and would just have to keep going. I have not reached that feeling yet and I have been doing this now for multiple months. I guess I am going to continue with it because I want to be strong and I need to be strong. But I don't enjoy it as much as I hoped I would.

    I know exactly what you mean!! I feel so much better after I exercise, so I can't figure out why I am not motivated to do it in the first place. It doesn't make sense to me at all. Every minute that I am on my treadmill, I am counting down the seconds until I can quit. That said, once I am past the half way point, my outlook tends to improve and I can usually push myself to go farther.

    I wish I could figure this out, I would like to enjoy exercise more! I need to work more on consistency and not skip any days, because for me one day becomes two, two days become three.......

    Good Luck!! I hope one day we look back and laugh at this because we eventually love to exercise!! emoticon

    I know exactly what you're saying. I feel totally dysfunctional because every single second of exercise feels like an hour to me. All I can think about is being finished. Despite that, I've been getting out there 6 days/wk. I don't expect it will ever suck less while I'm doing it, but I am hoping that soon the results will make it completely worth it.

    Good luck keepin' on keepin' on!
