Motivation to Workout

I so didn’t want to exercise this morning.  I had a hard time getting to sleep last night with thoughts racing through my head.  Finally fell asleep around 2:00 am.  And I had to get up before 7:30 to wake my son for a bowling trip with his friends.  Not a cheerful person this morning.

But I got up, woke him, made his bagel sandwich to go and sent him on his way. Then I folded laundry, read 2 chapters in a motivational book and listened to a lecture from my online Integrative Nutrition class.  Then I was thinking, why am I putting this off?

The book I am reading is Eat That Frog! by Brian Tracy and is all about procrastination.  I should have written the “what not to do” book on that subject since I have been an expert most of my life.  And it’s the reason I’m reading the darn book in the first place!

So on went the bright blue sneakers and I completed the Push 2 circuit of the ChaLEAN Extreme program.  Once I was done I was asking myself, “Why put it off?  If you don’t want to do it, then do it first and get it done!”  Brian Tracy would tell me that exercising was one of my biggest frogs and I have to eat that one first.
