Why do I complain, moan, groan, and make excuses about exercising when I know that I feel SO INCREDIBLE when I'm done??

Why?? WHy?? WHY???

Memo to February: You swept the awards with "Month of Least Exercise", "Month of Most Sporadic Tracking" and "Month of Most Complaining, Task Avoidance, and Griping". Congratulations. Enjoy the One Hit Wonder rise & fall. You'll be unrecognizeable in a year...and so will I. emoticon

    Focus on the positive - the feeling you have when its over - that's what I do when I'm procrastinating on getting my sweat on! Focus on the end game and its easier to get going....

    I have always had that problem but this time I'm actually following the advice to commit to 10 minutes a day. That just seemed like too little to me before. But, the hardest part is getting started and I have a much easier time getting started if I know I can stop after 10 minutes. It seems kind of like a silly trick on myself that I shouldn't fall for but it works for me. Most days I keep going after 10 minutes but I don't feel like I have failed if I do stop after 10. :-) I'm still not loving exercise but my goal is to keep at it and, like you, to remind myself how much better it feels when I exercise AND when I keep my promises to myself!

    I do the same thing, and constantly remind myself how much better I feel.
