I can sympathize with you, with our busy lives it's hard to fit everything in. I guess we all have to set our priorities and decide what is most important to us. I've just had 2 days with no exercise. Yesterday I was at an all day seminar and today had to do follow up work from the seminar and just didn't make time to get my walking in. All I can do is to do better tomorrow.

I myself find that I need to be motivated. I've been trying SparkPeople for over a month now and have only lost 2 pounds. My husband loves his big weekend breakfasts (sausage, bacon, eggs, pancakes, etc.), and it's so hard to resist when it all smells so good. Perhaps I should get the heck out of the house when he's cooking? (He refuses to change his eating habits.) But the hardest part is sticking to the exercise routine, especially after a long day at work.

(what does your usual daily schedule look like? are you a morning or a night person?

i'd look at that first and see where you might be able to find or make some time to workout.

is it possible to nap and the workout? when i was marathon training, i had to take a nap every single day after work because i was so tired.)

It's really hard sometimes to get and stay motivated. Eve's suggestion is right on, committ to a short amount of time and once you get started it is likely you will do more. Is it possible to do you exercise before going to work???

I tell myself just 10 minutes - that's all I have to do. I'll usually at least double that. But 10 minutes doesn't seem so insurmountable and it's usually just a matter of building momentum.

Hello everyone. How do you stay motivated to work out when you are tired? When I get home from work, I just want to take a nap. Any suggestions?
