Default I Need Motivation!!!!!!

Hello Everyone.!

It is Monday- I know I either need to go to a spinning class or run! I just don't know which to do? And I really don't feel like doing either! I just need someone to wake my Booty up and make me go!!! I know it will make me feel better but I am lacking in motivation. Help!!!!

Does anyone else suffer from this condition? And do you do anything special to get going?

You said it yourself.... you know you need to do it. So suck it up and go....just think of how good you'll feel after the workout.
Its always hard to get started but worth it when you finish.
I haven't been to the gym in a week cause I've been down with the flu. I'm still feeling a bit under the weather, and its cold, and dark and I don't want to go. BUT I know I have to ..... so I'm gonna suck it up and go. thats my best advice

Hi Lovestorun!

First, I want to congratulate you on your fifty-eight pounds lost! That's GREAT!

Do you give yourself a day every so often just to reflect on how well you have done? Have you gone for a massage lately? Are you getting enough sleep? Have you taken your vitamins?

My future daughter-in-law is a distance runner training for her first Ultra. She runs every day BUT listens to her body and takes stock every so often if she's feeling bad about getting out there to train. The paragraph of ideas is hers, so I KNOW they will help you get back on track.

Good Luck!

I pick out an event to train for. Running for just one motivation loses steam so I try to get as many motivators as possible.
Lost successfully, maintained successfully. Followed by a whole lot of setbacks and obstacles. Starting over with the knowledge gained before.

The hardest part is getting your shoes on and walking out the door, after that it's a breeze.

You can do this!

I really have to make myself exercise too.

I don't know that motivation is the only answer -- lots of times I don't have it. I think of it as making a commitment -- I make the commitment to exercise and I just do it, whether I want to or not.

My 5 C's of healthy living: Commitment to conscious control, with the understanding that choices have consequences

I am in the same boat. I am losing steam. It is hard to have to plan out everything that you are eating and getting to the gym for an honest workout. I need to get over the hump! Go for it! You are really close to goal there! How long have you been losing?
