Earlier today I was exactly at a zero for exercise motivation. It is raining and I am doing the Couch to 5k and today was supposed to be my day 3 of week 2.
However, I convinced my boyfriend that he should go out with me in the pouring rain so I can get *some* exercise and let me tell you, it was incredible!! He rode his bike next to me while I walked/ran. It wasn't the entire C25k session, but it was one mile and I ran straight for longer than I ever have before!
Right now I feel so good! So, for everyone out there who has absolutely no motivation today, just remember the feeling you get after a workout and if possible, get a friend to go with you!
My motivation for the rest of the day today is 10.
10... Life is too short, today I'm not taking anything for granted! LOL Kathy
"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm! P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But I don't think you have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too!
Wow...can I be a 1 and a 4?? Today was hard by afternoon. I so want to give up some days. I am motivated but boy as you know this is tough as all get up and go some days.
