Winning the Fight Against Yourself

  • I find it is easier to get my exercise in first thing in the morning. Maybe I am just too groggy to argue with myself when I first wake up. Ha! Ha! However, if I leave it until later, I can find a million reasons to talk myself out of it.
  • it took a while but now I love my early morning exercise...
  • It took me 5 years post bariatric surgery to embrace exercise. Now it is my "go to" to deal with my feelings and I actually miss it if my schedule is thrown off. I will find some way to include it every day. If I don't I am very crabby. I used to be a crab when I could not eat whatever I wanted. I will take the exercise crabby over the food crabby any day.
  • Sometimes motivation is hard; especially if you don't feel well.
  • I have been told that the reason I'm not losing weight is because I don't like exercise. I have this same fight, every morning, when I get up to do my 6 miles. I lie, to my self, every morning. "You can go back to bed, if you just put on your workout clothes." "You don't have to go very far - just to the end of the block." I do that for all 6 miles. I have a fitness tracker, so I know how far I go. It's good to hear that successful people have the same arguments.
  • Great article. I have not had a problem with motivation because I've been so excited about the Spark program and working out every day! Thank you.

  • Great article! Can definitely relate.
  • Who would ever thought a personal trainer would struggle with same issues that us "regular" people struggle with--exercise and eating right. Thank you for being transparent and for the encouragement to do what needs to be done to live longer and healthier.
    Me too realize the importance of exercise in life and the only thing which is keeping me behind is my hectic work schedule. I'm a working mother and I hardly get time for fitness. Can you please suggest workout schedule to upgrade my fitness.

    Thank you :)
