Struggling with motivation

Wednesday, February 07, 2007

I am very dissappointed in myself because I feel my commitment is wavering and I need something to change. I am not commited to doing my 1 to 1.5 hours of exercise every day or 5 days a week at the very least. I find all kinds of things to do instead of what I should be. I need to get back to where I was in October when it didn't matter what was going on I was going to do my exercise come hell or high water. Tonight I will commit to doing at least 45 mins (15 km) on my bike. Tommorrow is a new day but all the kids are home for a 4 day weekend.

    Hi there Wantto. I'm sorry that you've been going through this. Perhaps stoping by the group and reading some of the posts from all the new folks might help. We havn't heard from you in a while. In case you didn't notice the name has changed from Lets be skinny to Life inspired Calgarians. I really think you can do this, and help is just a key pad away. Don't give up on yourself ok, your worth more then that.

    Hey, sorry to pop in like this. I was checking out the most recent blog posts and ran across yours. It's terrible when you dread exercise. Have you ever thought about maybe trying workouts videos to mix things up? I've been doing a program called Turbo Jam for about 8 months. I absolutely adore it. They have cardio and strength training (you need both to loose weight effectively and healthily). I never dread it, I actually look forward too it. :)

    Stay after it, you're worth it!!! Maybe try putting in shorter workouts until you can get back into the 1.5 hour routine. Remember, ANYTHING is better than NOTHING. 20-30 minutes will not kill you and it'll get you back into the groove.

    YOU CAN DO IT!!!!
