Today's motivation

Thursday, May 08, 2014

Okay, this image is not completely correct. But it's how I feel this morning.

Yesterday was a day off. That being said, I still did step aerobics, walked the dogs 1.5miles, and did 90min yoga. I took the day off of running.

Good thing too. My body was tired from the day before.

But today I'm supposed to get the dogs out and run before my morning fitness class. The above image describes how I feel. I just want to melt under my blanket. On the couch.

Why is it so hard to get back to doing what I need to do after I take a day off? I go through this EVERY time. I wish it would go away, but it doesn't.

So here I am working my motivation up to go out the door this morning.

It hasn't been 12 weeks, so I can't let myself give in. I need to keep pushing.

I have backed off in the past, and have regretted it every time. I need to stop starting over. The only way to do that is to STOP QUITTING!!!

No matter what, this morning will pass. Do I want to go to work wishing I'd pushed myself out the door to do what I needed to do to get my fitness in for today? Or do I want to feel strong having completed my training? Do I want to go riding on the endorphins I will get from the workout?

I'm thinking I want the latter. I have another 45min before I have to get out and go. I'm thinking drink some water, and then get out the door in 30min.

    Sometimes we all just need a kick in the pants. I did not want to exercise yesterday but I still did something. Have a great day and love all the motivation.
