Today SparkCoach says to blog about excuses for not working out, which is funny since I had actually planned to skip my workout today since it was too cold this morning to go to the gym and I just "didn't feel like it". In fact I was in a pretty funky mood, didn't get out of bed for an hour, and wasn't sure I was even going to continue trying to get healthy. Welcome to the world of being bipolar. After about a month-long exercise "high", I've started to crash. So now we'll see if I can do this without the fixation on it.

Anyway, I've decided that I don't need that extra boost of help. I can do this. I'm not going to the gym, though. Instead, I'll try the Fit, Firm and Fired Up video again. Being healthy is worth it, and if it requires a few sacrifices in other areas, that's okay.

  I do the 10 minutes rule. Even when I don't want to, I walk for at least 10 minutes and it usually helps. I too am bipolar. usually once I start I feel so much better. Blessings to you on your journey

    I like you had big plans when I woke up but decided to wait and then had another excuse. You've inspired me to get off the couch and do something. emoticon

    Videos are most helpful on those days.

    Well...I don't really ever 'feel' like doing my workouts but somehow I put one foot forward and the rest comes easy. It's the 1st step that's the hardest.

Hats off to you that you did choose an option instead of NOT doing anything at all.. emoticon
