Tricking Myself


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

When I have an off day and don't feel like going to the gym, I still make myself drive by. Somehow I always end up pulling into the parking lot and thinking "Well, since I'm already here, I might as well go inside". I feel like I'm tricking myself into getting there, but it works! It's easy to stay at home on the couch, but once you're in the gym's parking lot then the couch isn't quite as tempting.

    On days I don't feel like going to the gym, I put on my gym clothes and have the same thing. "Well, as long as I'm wearing my gym clothes I might as well go." Or, "As long as I'm wearing my gym clothes I might as well run."
