I think I've lost my motivation to exercise. Not really, it's more subtle than that. I definitely want to exercise still but I seem to have lost the time that I used to make. I started scheduling my exercise workouts on the calendar so I could go to the gym but the first day I missed that, it kind of threw me off and now I can't seem to even get back up to 15,000 steps.
I think it has to do with getting our house back in order along with school stuff. We still have a few boxes to unpack and I've been slowly getting to those but I seem to keep falling behind on regular household chores. Those just pile up if I don't stay up on them until I want to take the whole day and just clean, but I can't because I don't have time. It's become either exercise or clean and I need to do both. Soooo, first things first. I need to get the house back in order and get my schedule back out. It's time to go back to paper and keep a cleaning schedule. I used to do that at our old house and it kept cleaning to a minimum and brought my time back. My old schedule does not fit my new house and routines, so I'll work on revamping that.
Next, is exercise. I LOVE to exercise. I love to watch the steps add up and put everything down on paper later. But that is also a reason that it gets put off. I am a reward type of person. Basically, I try to do everything I don't like to do first before I'll let myself do the things that I enjoy. So that means I tell myself I need to clean before I exercise. Well, that's just BULL! And I need to get over it. So, I think I may get up and start exercising first, in the morning. Tons of people do it and it's supposed to be the best time to exercise. I'm not exactly at my best in the morning but I think I'll give it a try. It may help get me more motivated to catch up on all of this cleaning!
