@mrstilly:  I get worked up inside when I miss a workout.  I had a baby seven months ago (I have two under two) and I also have a destination wedding planned for April.  When I miss my workouts I feel pretty bad and guilty until the next day. I try to workout extra hard to make up for it! Iam in the best shape of my life right now, I started working out 6 weeks after the baby was born and I’m so proud of where I’ve gotten to physically.  For me I think I’m afraid that I won’t be able to keep this up.  My body is my motivator now.

My MOH and I were talking about this just yesterday. I sometimes feel guilty if I don’t get a workout/run in, but she was telling me how it was seriously bothering her to the point that she was working out 7 days a week and injuring herself, but because she felt so guilty, she just kept going. She’s cut back a lot now, but she still keeps herself active. Wanting to be healthy and fit is good, but don’t let your guilt get away from you, because it can be just as unhealthy as staying in your couch. Let yourself off the hook every now and again.

I feel guilty if I miss a workout. I hit the gym every weekday and I feel blah if I miss a day. My weekends are my relax days.

Yes, definitely. I missed today because I had so many errands to run and then got stuck in a traffic jam. By the time I got home, it was quarter to five and I knew I had to get supper started or we’d have to go to our dance lesson hungry. I wouldn’t have minded, but FI comes home famished. Then I was grumpy for eating supper when I hadn’t worked out. I’m also feeling really fat right now because I’m pre-period, so because of that, I cleared my whole schedule tomorrow and I’m going to work out the whole day. I hate feeling pudgy! And I know I’ll miss a workout the day I get my period because of cramps, so gotta make up for that now.

STOP READING RUNNING BLOGS.  Many of these people have serious excercise addictions and crazy obsessions with running too fast or doing too much too soon.  Not good.  Check our runnersworld.com forums instead- I love it over there- all rational people.

If they make you feel that way, its not good.  I’m a runner, I have pretty decent times.  I squeeze runs in when I can, and they do work as stress relief…BUT there is a point where it is more healthy NOT to run.  Your family has to come first.  I promise your times won’t suffer that much, and neither will your mileage.  One missed run can be a blessing in disguise (more recovery).  It’s not the end of the world.

I used to be like this.  I really would feel terrible if I didn’t run/work out.  I also had an eating disorder.  I think the two may have been related (not saying it is for you).  It may not be that bad for you, but it really made me look at my priorities.

I can relate! Running and exercising has always been a huge part of my life and I was raised to be very active.  My fiance will jog once a week and bike a few times, but doesn’t value fitness the way I do.  Because of this, he doesn’t understand why I hate missing a workout. I’m just a nicer, happier, better person after a workout! I’m trying to let go a little bit and take an extra day off here and there, but it’s not easy. However, I am starting to realize that it isn’t the end of the world if I can’t get a run/workout in and just try to do some planks, push ups, squats, etc at my house.  If you can’t get a run in, just try to eat a little healthier that day and maybe add on a couple extra miles the next time you run to even it out 🙂

I do get worked up–about how awesome it is to sit on the couch and drink a glass of wine instead. 🙂

I get worked up if it was out of my control.

For instance, the pool I workout at was closed for weather teo days this week (hurricane effects) and I was more than pissed off.  I chewed out a lifeguard, made a huge scene with my SO..etc.

But, if I have a day I’m going out or don’t feel like going, I don’t beat myself up.  I just work a bitsharer on my next workout..

Lol, just ask my husband about the time I cried because I overslept for my Wednesday morning cardio strength class. I also get stressed when I know I have to get into work early and will have to skip or cut short a workout. Logically, I know that one day won’t make a difference, but I am a very routine-oriented person and I hate getting out of my daily groove.

Yes I do, before I used to use that as an excuse to keep not going but not anymore.  I try my best to make it to the gym twice a week and work out in some form for 3 to 4 days.
