It is 90% mental (at least for me)The thing about exercise is that sometimes I just don't wanna... I mean seriously, I was a fat couch potato for 23 years, it doesn't just change. But, I have NEVER finished a workout and thought "Oh my heck, I wish I wouldn't have done that." (I have thought "I think I'm going to throw up" or "I'm pretty sure I am going to die.)
Case in point the 3 mile run I just went on. I was committed to 3 miles when I got on the treadmill. .2 miles in, I thought, 1 mile will be enough... maybe even a 1/2 mile will be plenty.
I just told myself "you said 3 miles, we are doing 3 miles." I kept pushing and I did 3 miles, no walking and it felt so good and I was proud of myself. Yes proud of myself. So here is my push:
If you are debating working out JUST DO IT! If you can't run, walk, if you don't wanna walk, bike, just do something. The couch will be there when you get done.
Oh, and hook yourself up with some good tunes:)
