I know weight loss usually ends up with an increase in energy but I feel like I'm a chronically lazy and it's constantly derailing my plan.
For as long as I can remember, I've been a come-home-and-sit kind of person. I was this way at a higher weight and a lower weight and I am now somewhere in the middle.
Right now I only work 8 short hours a day. My commute is about 25 minutes so I'm gone from about 8-5 everyday. At 5 I feel dead and I eat dinner and then want to do NOTHING. Exercise feels like it will take more energy than I can muster. I can't even bring myself to do other things around the apartment, like clean or study or other chores and those all get pushed back to the weekend.
I've tried "pushing through" and working out everyday before work or after and I end up feeling overtaxed. Last night I got home, made dinner & ate it, took a short break and then did 45 minutes of Wii exercise plus a shower. By then it was 7:30 and I felt no energy to do anything and just watched TV and went to sleep at 9:30.
The last time I consistently worked out was when I worked half-days at school and left at noon. Now I'm back to full days and I'm just so tired!
Anyone have some energy-creating tips? Or stories about overcoming low energy (laziness!)?
