My fitness update is very similar to the previous two. Or one, seeing as the last one disappears.
I’ve been getting a bit disheartened really, because things just keep getting in my way. I’ve had a lot going on in real life so I’m feeling distracted by everything and things keep happening to make me feel like I want to just not bother with exercising.
Like I forgot my water bottle on Friday so didn’t go to the gym as planned, my blog post disappearing, I was running on the treadmill and my hip hurt so I couldn’t run, I forgot my padlock for my locker, I forgot to start my polar watch so it didn’t record any data, I left my headphones in the car.. just things like that.
Little, tiny things that can easily frustrate me and make me feel like I don’t want to even try and go to the gym anymore.
I think that deep down, I’ve not enjoying exercise as much as I was a few months ago. I don’t want to admit that to myself. But I’ve just found myself wanting to make excuses not to go to the gym.
I think if I didn’t do this update every week, I probably would have talked myself out of even going at all!
But twice a week is better than nothing and I’m hoping soon enough, I’ll be more motivated.
Next week I’m going to try a lot harder with eating better and not drinking as much. I say try, it’s because I don’t have that feeling of I AM GOING TO 100% DO THIS inside me, I don’t have that drive.
As much as I WANT to be better with food and exercise, it’s not a massive priority right now so it’s making it difficult for me to be strict with myself.
I guess the best I can do is keep trying until I get the motivation for it again. This happens to me, it happens to us all. I just hope it’s not going to last too long.
After writing this post, I decided to get myself to the gym to make myself feel better. And you know what? It worked.
Here’s to better weeks.
