KATHY, it's very common to go through times where exercise feels more like a chore rather than something we do because we enjoy it. It can be quite demoralising to go through phases like this, but it's also a common feeling.
I have some days when I struggle through my warm up and the early part of my workout, but after a time I get settled in and feel as if I'm actually going to enjoy it and make some progress.
Other times, I get stuck in straight away and at the end I think "Yes, I was really up for that today!"
Some days, when I'm finished, I shower and get home from the gym feeling as if I could take on the world.
Other days it takes me all my effort just to get showered! Then, when I get home and think of all the other chores and jobs I have to do that day, it's almost as if there's a mountain in front of that I somehow have to climb.
I guess what I'm saying is keep at it - good days, bad days, we all have them, but in the end it's consistency that counts - and of course enjoying your workouts too!
Please read my ticker backwards as I am trying to gain weight.
