My groove

It appears I have lost it.  It’s not gone for good, or at least I hope it’s not, but it does seem to be missing.  The groove I am referring to is the one that got me to the gym 5 days a week.  My gym was closed last week for 8 days, but is now open and has been since Tuesday.  I have yet to make an appearance. 

Here's the thing - I am never going to wake up one day and think to myself, “Gee, I’m in the mood to exercise.”  It just isn’t going to happen.  Knowing that about myself, I try my best to not wait till the mood strikes before I actually do it.  If I did, I would be waiting a very long time.  For some reason however, I have fallen prey to letting my emotions lead my decision-making this past week and a half.  Welcome to the life of being a girl I guess.

I’m going to make a commitment though.  Today I am going to go to the gym.  I am going to ignore all the excuses that will, without fail, pop into my head and just suck it up.  Why?  Because I want to be in the best shape I can be while trying to conceive (TTC) and that can’t happen if I sit on my couch and eat.  I’m going to do it.  I hope.

You feel so good after excercising. When I ran, the first bit was brutal but I would get into a state that was so free. I would feel so good about myself after. Hopefully that can be some motivation for you.

You can do it... when I don't want to exercise, I just think "do it for the baby" then I'm motivated to get myself out of the house. Lately, I have enjoyed running in the park.

DId you make it to the gym? It is hard to actually get up and go, but once you are there it always seems worth it. And it does take away some of the stress we gather throughout the day. Hope you pounded some 'rubber pavement'!

Thank you everyone for your words of encouragement! I did make it to the gym 2 nights in a row. Starting tomorrow I am back to 5 nights a week. I need to drop some more pounds before ttc and exercise is the best way I know to do it!
