Workout funk

Friday, November 15, 2013

I've been in a bit of a workout funk lately--I make sure to get some in on the weekend but I'm not great about working out after work, and try as I might, I just can't get up early to do it before.

This past weekend I went to visit my sister and brother-in-law and their new baby in North Carolina. It was a great time, and while I was there my brother-in-law's sister invited me to do a free bootcamp class. I decided to do it--and man, was I wrecked afterward! I was happy I accomplished it, though. It was definitely a rewarding challenge. I came back to NY and even after eating out and having desserts, I was my exact same weight, so yay!

What do you do when you just don't have the motivation to workout?

    Good question... Umm... I was in a funk for like... a month or more. What motivated me is that I sit in a desk for like...8 hours a day...then in the car for almost two. So, to "move" was like a treat to me!

    I would say, you just gotta start with baby steps. Pick a reasonable goal and nail that! Then make it a little more challenging... you can do this!

    Don't give up!

    I know what you mean. My problem lately has been that I'm just plain bored with my normal workouts. So, I decided to join a boot camp that meets 3 times per week from 5:30am-6:30am. It's tough to get up but I know that I'm accountable to the group. I've been at it for 2 weeks and it has really inspired me to focus and my motivation has increased tremendously. Find something you enjoy and then schedule it on your calendar as something you HAVE TO DO! emoticon emoticon
