I know how important exercise is. I know all of the benefits. And believe me, I know that I could use some of those benefits right about now! There is just one slight problem....I absolutely have no motivation! Exercise to me, is well, not always fun. I know I need to just get up and do it and make a habit of it. Then maybe it will be fun again.
Here are a few more issues:
- I have tried gym memberships. I don't go often enough and it is painful to see the money wasted.
- I have bought home workout videos. But trying to work out with kids at my feet or tugging on my shirt or wanting something every other minute, only discourages me more! Not only do I turn if off, I am then ornery at my kids for just being kids!
- I don't like to run. This makes going on a morning jog not so desirable!
- Because I love shopping and clothes, I have bought "cute" workout clothes in hopes that I will be excited to wear them and therefore, exercise in them.
I haven't always been this unmotivated to exercise. I just need to get back into action! I have a goal to drop at least ten pounds in the coming months. Oh, and I would like to shed a few inches from the not so loved areas of my body!!
I know many of my readers are avid exercisers. So to you, am I a lost cause? I need some suggestions. Have any of you had similar experiences? How do you exercise with kids and not get frustrated and just quit? Please send me your words of wisdom.
All I need is a gentle nudge.......okay maybe a hefty shove! Nontheless, I am ready to do this!
