I had a real hard time last eve with exercising. Between knee problems and allergies that effect my ears I was like a drunk trying to say upright and not stagger around! LOL I try and have to force myself to exercise, but I usually feel much better. emoticon

I seem to be almost manic when it comes to exercise. I love doing it when I'm doing it but the thought of it doesn't appeal to me. hmmmm. Less thinking and more doing?

I second what all the others are saying.

I absolutely HATE to exercise, despise being sweaty, abhore the after-ache ...... I never have trouble finding an excuse NOT to exercise. And, when I finish, I do not get that lovely "endorphin high" that so many people wax eloquent about.

However, I DO like knowing that I did something for my health and that I had the self discipline to do something good even though I didn't especially like it.

I try to find different kinds of exercise that I hate less than others. I don't like to run so I never set myself up to fail by planning a run or any kind of sport that involves running. I do enjoy walking so, when the weather is nice, I walk in the evenings and bring a resistance band to do some strength training as I walk. In miserable weather I do a Leslie Sansone walking video or ride a stationary bike or walk on the treadmill. I know swimming is a good exercise -- I just happen to hate that one too.

The point is, try to find something that is acceptable to you, even if it's not your dream of how to spend a given block of time.

Good luck! Happy moving!

Maybe you're setting yourself up for failure. Are you telling yourself you need to exercise 5 times a week or for long sessions? Set a goal you can achieve and you'll feel great. Maybe 2 times a week for 20 minutes. sounds easy but nice to accomplish. Then next week go to 30 min.

I agree. You have low motivaion now because you haven't seen what it can do for you yet. Try it, you may not like it, but you will like what it does for you.
Why don't you join our sparkteam "SparkGuy's 10 minute fitness club". You just have to do 10 minutes a day, and you'll have a big fan club cheering you on!

Good luck!

Judi. Exercise is tough for me because of the limited time that I have due to working long hours. I find that I have to force myself alot of the time in order to complete an exercise. I have to admit that there are some things that I am not able to do because of the knee surgery. When this is the case I try to come up with something else. You feel much better and I think that the motivationcomes from losing weight and being able to see the changes!!!! So hang in there and stay positive! emoticon

Well today I have been checking into sp all day because doing the week I am limited to the times Ican check in, today read some post that they had lost 13lbs and another person said she cried in her closet when she couldn't find anything to wear, it was all too big for her. So that got me up off the computer and I done 45 on the emoticon .

I doubt I am alone in finding hundreds of excuses not to exercise. Has anyone found a way to overcome this??
