My skull is quite thick...

Sunday, January 06, 2013

Why is it that making yourself do a workout is SO HARD?! When you put it into this context, then it doesn't seem so hard. But MAKING MYSELF DO IT.....oh that can be a whole other thing!!

Just as a Spark Streak builds on itself, so does when you do something negative. One day of being lazy and skipping a workout......turns into two.........into a week........maybe longer......

But that's okay. It's not an excuse - it's just thick-skulledness. And I'm working on thinning it out! Starting now!

Spark Streak: Day 1. I will keep on keeping on. I will get it done. Despite a thick skull!

    That all sounds so familiar - I think we all have a little of that thick skullness going on every once in a while. Keep up the great work, you will make it.

    Keep going girl! One foot in front of the other... you know how good it makes you feel after and even more down the road.

    Just like Bob the Builder says, "you can do it... YES you can!"

    I'm pulling for you

    Since I started working out regularly, last February, I have been worried about this too. Over Christmas, I had a nasty head cold and moving my head hurt, so I didn't work out for a little over a week. I was worried that not moving would become a new habit, but I started back slow. It helped. One of the things I realized is that I have to do workouts that are fun or else I won't do them. I actually look forward to my morning workout - it wakes me up and the music makes me want to move more.

    Good luck with your new streak!

    Beating yourself up has been shown to have little to no correlation with reducing the thickness of one's skull. Just start over as many times as you need. Day ones have a habit of become day twos and day threes.

    Keep sparkin' ... emoticon or should I say emoticon I understand how you feel. It takes awhile for a new action to become a habit.

    I used to feel that way. When dinosaurs roamed the earth, I hated doing my workouts. I had to do them to fill out my thin-framed body. Years and years of doing this got me to the point that I long ago stopped feeling like I had to 'make myself' do them. It just became part of who I was. I really can't remember the last time I didn't start a workout without feeling good about it.
    Keep doing what you are doing. As the years add up, it will become part of who you are. Good luck!
