The Brain Gets It - why isn't the body moving?
Wednesday, June 16, 2010
I am gonna nag this exercise phobia of mine to death until I am so sick of hearing about it that I actually DO IT!!
I go through periods like this where I just wanna sit. I have a very stressful job and I tend to physically shut down. Just wanna curl up in a ball and physically vegetate.
And I WILL, sooner or later, snap out of it, but sometimes the WAIT for the MOVEMENT to begin is mentally and emotionally draining.
I KNOW I feel better when I exercise. I have no idea why I fight it so.
And it is not like I am not moving at all right now - it's just that there is no real, true effort. I climb on the elliptical and do 20, I walk and do 20-30, but it is just a matter of doing it.
I need to be engaged in the effort. Feel the effort. PUSH the effort. Make it count.
So, for today - even if it is "only 20" - it is gonna be 20 COMMITTED, POWERFUL MINUTES!!
