Ok, I have to admit, I am struggling to get motivated a bit at the moment. Well, maybe more than just a bit…
After the holiday period, along with getting absolutely slammed with work over December (I 0nly had 2 days off ALL month.. so exhausting!), my routine has become unstuck and I am seriously battling to get back into my regular training.
The past two mornings I have set my alarm for 5:30am to get up and go for my usual morning walk or run. And both mornings I’ve hit the snooze button, rolled over and fallen back asleep. I then somehow justified this laziness in my head by convincing myself it was ok because “I am going to the gym tonight”. Which I did do, but this is still NOT OK!!!
At the time, although that oh so enticing extra little bit of sleep seemed liked the better option, it really wasn’t. I completely regret not getting out of bed and doing my morning workout. Not only do I feel so much better and have more energy throughout the day when I workout first thing in the morning, but it also sets me straight for a healthy, active day ahead!
I never regret when I do workout, but always regret it when I don’t. This is itself is enough to motivate me. Knowing how much better I will feel once its done, is the mind over matter technique I plan to use tomorrow when me alarm goes off.
No more excuses! No more giving in to the temptation of my soft, comfortable bed!
Because, after all…
“The only workout you’ll ever regret, is the one you didn’t do”
