So Unmotivated Today...

Sunday, February 24, 2013

OK. Today was long and full of movement here and there I am just tired. As I sit here in my bed knowing that the day I decided not to exercise was yesterday. I can't move. I thought well get in 30 minutes of something anything! I'm just tired and don't feel like doing anything just sitting here. I didn't want to even log on to write this lol. It is now almost 9pm and I sit here typing about not wanting to exercise....argh. emoticon

    Hey we all get like this sometimes. It's okay to take a break. I was like that yesterday but I did go to the gym and put in a workout. It wasn't my best performance but...

If your body needs rest give it rest. Just make sure you're not being lazy or making excuses and if you are limit them. Sometimes it helps to review your goals, reasons for wanting to you just the right dosage of motivation

    No need to beat yourself up about taking a day off. The body needs rest as much as it needs activity. You know yourself better than anyone else. If taking too many days off throws you off track, take a look at your workout and put more things in that are fun. Dance for me is something that really fills that gap. I love my music, I get a great cardio workout and I do wear my pedometer so I know I get lots of steps in as well. I invested in a trampoline for the same reason, it make me feel like a kid again and allows variation in my workout.

Newton's First Law of Motion that states: "An object at rest will remain at rest...; An object in motion will remain in motion..." Sarah Bernhardt put it simpler “Energy creates energy...." Build the consistency that you want, You have to build the consistency that you want and check with your doc to make sure there's nothing else going on.

The power is in YOU to make your goals happen. Do it! emoticon

    It's ok to take a day or two off. Just as long as we don't totally stop!

    I got a hot Pink FitBit Zip via
I wear it every single day even when I don't feel like taking a shower or going out of my house (most Saturday's)!
The steps really add up doing ordinary things like laundry, taking out the garbage, checking the mailbox, vacumming! OhhhKayyy...those steps add up and I don't beat myself up for having a day off or three from exercise when I am utterly exhausted, sick or just plain ole' lazy as hell.

If I'm not actually feeling really sick I will squeeze in a couple of sets of
"Close Wall Arm PushUps" (search SparkPeople Excecises). I use these to bribe myself into KNOWING that at least I did something and being kind to myself. emoticon

    I have been like that a lot lately. Part of it is the cold weather and not wanting to leave my warm home! Sometimes we just need a break too!

    Our bodies have a way of telling us what it needs. Get some rest. Then get back in there. I Like Debby4576's advice fitbit is great for tracking your movement. It actually challenges me to move more. emoticon

    I feel like that often! A day of rest now and then is ok. Don't beat yourself up about it. If it gets to be more than now and then, you just have to make yourself move. Maybe shake it up by doing something different for your exercising?

    I agree it happens. I hate the tired days. Have you thought about a fitbit or pedometer. On days that you don't do ST, you can feel better seeing how much you actually did move.
