I spend a LOT of hours in a gym, but too often they are behind a desk and at a computer. Who KNEW that running a fitness studio was so much administration??
There are weeks where it’s just torture to make the time to get out on the floor. I mean, I’m in a pretty good place with my self-talk and motivation, but some weeks…man. Some weeks.
Last week I had a four-day jag where I just couldn’t get it together to get my workout clothes on and get my ass into class.
- “I have to finish next week’s social media plan before I can work out.”
- “If I can’t do the whole hour, then why bother?”
- My (insert body part here) hurts.”
- “I’m too tired.”
Day 5? I forced it. No regrets.
…putting down the damn social media plan and coming back to it post-workout, refreshed, an hour later.
…doing 20, 30, 45-minutes of something rather than 4 hours of NOTHING
…figuring out how to work AROUND the body part that is aching or hurting
…sucking it up and finding the energy I've currently lost. It’s always out there on the floor (or on the run or at the yoga studio…)
This week I challenge you to take note of how you feel before you exercise. Put a word to it: tired, crabby, frustrated, confused, fearful, whipped, sore. At the end of your workout, tune in. What’s different? What word can you use now to describe how you feel or your energy level? Take the time to use the white boards around Method 360 this week to document the change 60 minutes can make to your day…hell, even your week!
