I Don't Want To

I don't want to go to the gym tonight. It's cold out, I'm tired and I have a thousand other excuses. It wouldn't be the end of the world to take a day off, but I am just having one of those days. That's when I should really force myself to go to the gym. The workout would do me good, but right now I think it would take a fork lift to get me out of my recliner. I am always afraid that if I skip a day it is the start of a slippery slope of not going the next day, and the next. But if if use some reverse psychology here, perhaps if I allow myself a day off today, it wouldn't feel like such a chore. Am I talking in circles or what? I should go, I don't want to and I guess I am trying to convince myself it's ok, or give myself permission to have one slacker night. Ugh!

Here's the upside, I am very happy with weight loss so far this month, I am already down 4 pounds and it is only half way through the month. So that is going well. But I sooooo want to see 209 on the scale. That is the only reason I want to go to the gym because I know that will help me get there faster. But I cannot get my ass out of my chair. Some days your mind is your biggest enemy.


  1. The mind is certainly an enemy, I agree with you there. Do you go to the gym every day? What about a rest day so your body can recover? I used to go a lot too, before I had kids, now I'm like 'what is a gym again?' lol.

  2. I am exactly the same, I really worry that if I miss one day that I'll never go again! You're doing great, do you allow yourself rest days?
