HOW DO I PREPARE MYSELF TO WORKOUT WHEN I DON'T REALLY WANT TO

Saturday, January 16, 2010

I try to imagine going into stores and buying the size clothes that I should be wearing. And knowing how it would feel not to carry all these extra pounds around. Also getting off all my meds is a great motivator.

    I like to get it done first thing in the morning - such a good feeling to know that all the extra activity I may do during the day is a bonus.

    What you need to do is first find out what time of day will fit into your schedule best. Then find what type of exercise you like best (do you do to a gym, or have things at home?) Then make it part of what you have to do that day... just like brushing your teeth, or paying bills. It has to become part of your routine. Then it will become something you just do.

    Find something you somewhat enjoy doing. That one type of cardio that makes you smile when you're done. And don't over work yourself. Wear a heart rate monitor so you can keep track of where you are in your intensity level. If you are going over a lot, that will actually defeat the purpose, make you sluggish, and not give you those happy endorphins.

    If you know what time you want to work out, put on those workout clothes at that time, and do it. Wake up and immediately put on your clothes. Finish work and before you leave go to the bathroom and change. Once you have those clothes on you get a totally different view of things.

    Good luck!

    Great visualizer, getting those "cute" clothes - and coming off meds is a SUPER bonus!
