A Work in Progress: Excuses, Excuses...
So what I have been doing is first bringing my gym clothes to work with me and changing before I leave the office. This puts me in the mindset of automatically heading to the gym from work (do not pass go, do not collect $200) and prevents me from finding an excuse not to go. Once I've got the gear on, game on! It's working so far.
Having a workout partner also helps a lot. My best friend and I are keeping eachother motivated and we have incentivized out workouts. If we work out for at least 30 minutes per day we have agreed to treat ourselves to a massage at the end of the week. There are these great $20 hour-long reflexology massage places springing up all over the place. Cheaper than a pedicure and far more relaxing! :)
I'd love to know what some of my reader's excuses for not working out are and solutions that keep them pushing on. Please share and thanks for sticking with me!
