I cant get myself motivated to exersise



Recommended Posts

I will NEVER love working out, so I agree with screwing the idea of motivation. I just think of it like another thing I have to do, like wiping your ass. You HAVE to wipe your ass! Lol!

Whatever gets you to the gym I guess. I enjoy my gym sessions, but they are a little easier to enjoy than wiping my ass....because it's slightly less messy, but takes nearly as long. :huh:

*le sigh....I was referring to the topic: MOTIVATION. You don't need to be motivated, you just have to do it....

It took about two months. I do Water aerobics 4days a week and work with a personal trainer for strength training two days a week.

It's very much a "Just Do It" thing for me too. I don't look forward to it, I don't like it when I'm there, I don't like the extra laundry, I don't like losing an hour out of every day, but I still go 5 days a week. Every Week. No exceptions.

I doubt I'll ever like going to the gym, but I DO like what it's doing for me. 91 pounds down, off my BP meds, blood sugar back into normal ranges, energy is up and my clothes sizes keep on getting smaller. That's why I keep going.

Just Do It!

I'm a 66 year old who did a 5 k walk for the first time in April. Water aerobic exercise 3 times a week... Golf twice a week. Still taking a cart because I hit so many times for 9 holes. Will walk another 5 k in color run in Lansing MI in July. I hated exercise!! Haha

You may just need an energy boost. Tried eating more nutrient dense food, natural foods, stuff that is not processed. It made a big difference for me. I am always wanting to get up and go now, I do lots of walking and starting to hike now and I'm and old man. If you eat right and take good supplements, you will always wanting to be doing something, you'll be dancing around darling. Go to your local healthfood store and speak to a nutritionist. A lot of it won't taste great at first, but you start to look and feel great, and exercising...it's a snow ball effect.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
