The dress is my motivator.  I purposefully ordered it a smaller size, so now I know I need to get my butt into gear.  

What if you try downloading some new songs to workout too?

I”ve found that if I wake up and immediately put on my workout clothes, then I”m more likely to go to the gym. I heard a quotation once: : “The hardest part of running is putting on your sneakers.” For me, that’s so true!

Ugh, I had EVERY intention of going to the gym this morning and I just could. not. get. up. And now I’m KICKING myself for not going. That’s 800 calories, almost 1/3 of a pound I could have lost! So disappointed in myself and yet I probably won’t go tomorrow either.

The things that work best for me are:
1) Making a schedule. If I know how many times I want to go combined with what else I have going on during the week, I know how much flexibility I have with when I can work out.
2) Tracking my calorie burn and mileage. I started running a few months ago and got a Nike+ for the holidays. I’m officially obsessed with it.
3) Aside from the wedding dress, wedding pictures! I don’t want to get my pictures back and see extra chins, arm flaps etc. and know that if I had just put in the time and committed to workint out…

Good luck! Don’t let one little rough patch foul up your plans entirely! You can do it!

we all have rough patches and cycles – don’t stress! just get back up on that horse (or treadmill or bike or elliptical or weights…) and start again!  Every bit helps and you will feel great afterwards!

@KMSull – Whoah! How long do you spend at the gym to burn 800 calories? What exercise do you do?

I wear a heart rate monitor. Im on the heavier side right now so I get to burn more calories than someone who’s say, 110 pounds doing the same activity! I’m usually there about an hour and a half doing a weight class and a high intensity aerobic class. I don’t get NEARLY as good calories counts if I work out by myself, though.

I have such a hard time getting motivated to work out. I have the best of intentions and then I get tired, or lazy, or have to clean, or want to hang out with FI, and it just doesn’t happen. Sigh.
