Plans for Exercise for the day

Wednesday, July 04, 2012

It is July 4th and, yes, I am planning to go to gym and work with trainer this morning. I signed up for program three weeks ago, and I keep pushing off returning to the place. Everything else that is going on in life gives me an excuse to cancel my appointment.

I need to not talk myself out of taking care of myself. Why do we do that? In the end It causes more regrets than getting myself in gear and doing it.

Nothing like being out of shape to make you feel bizillion years old. Must put an end to that feeling!

    O-oh . . . I know exactly what you mean. Absolutely anything is, for me, an excuse not to exercise myself into shape. I know that what a friend here said a while ago is true - I feel SO much better for making the effort - mentally as much as physically - and all is right - or at least better - in my world, whatever else is going on.
    I also relate to the fact that being out of shape makes me feel older even than I am - NOT what I want. What I DO want is more respect for myself - to like myself enough to do this thing that I've been struggling with on Spark (and before).
    I wish you what it takes to get yourself to the gym today and I double wish for you that you feel a sense of achievement once you're done there that will keep you going back.

    Good luck - and . . . let me know? emoticon

    Taking care of yourself will always make you feel good. If you think the gym is too far, why not go for a program that is more accessible and that you'll enjoy instead. Just my 2 cents. Good luck!
