My days are 9.5 hrs + driving. I'm out the door at 6am and home by 5pm.
While my job is not what you would call active - it is mentally exhausting.
There are some days, as I'm driving home, I find myself trying to talk myself out of doing my workout. On those days, I focus on why it's important to keep going. I will literally say out loud to myself "come on, you know you're going to workout so cut it out."
More often than not, once I start the workout I perk up mentally anyway. I'm always glad I didn't talk myself out of it.
It took practice, in the beginning, I would give in far too many times.
But now, even when I still play the mental game with myself I don't give in.
