When I think I'm just too tired to exercise, I commit to do 10 minutes of light exercise. If I'm tired after 10 minutes, I'm allowed to quit. But 95%+ percent of the time I feel better after 10 minutes and go on to get a good workout.
Sometimes if I feel too tired to exercise and it's tempting to just skip it. But then i remember how peaceful and relaxed I feel once I get into the groove of my lap swimming. I focus on how good and invigorated I feel once I've finished working out and next thing I know my bag is backed and I'm out the door to the gym. After I've finished working out I'm always proud of myself and glad I resisted the urge to skip it. 237
Whenever I feel that I'm too tired to exercise or just sometimes don't feel like it, I remember a quote from a book I read, "Every step I Take, is a Step in the RIGHT direction." It helps me every time!
