Working Out When You Really Don’t Want To

We all have our little routines when it comes to working out.  And for the most part, I’m sure we stick to our routines for the duration.

But on occasion something happens that interrupts that routine or makes us unable to even do it for a day or two.

Recently I was sick and unable to get on the treadmill.  Towards the end of the illness, I was able to start walking my dog again.  But getting on the treadmill has really been hard for me.

My mind has come up with every excuse available and then some to avoid the treadmill.  But I have forced myself to get back on the treadmill.  Some days I can do 30+ minutes, some days only 10 or 15.  And THAT’s OK!

Some time on the treadmill is way better than none at all.  So I will continue to persevere and drag my lazy bohunkus to the treadmill and workout.  I will refuse to believe the lies my brain is telling me and in the end I will be glad I didn’t listen to those lies.
