I know it!  Some days it just feels like torture!  But you just have to power through and you will feel great when it’s done!

UGH, that’s how I felt yesterday!  I’ve taken it a little easy since finishing my first half marathon in Jan.  But I’m signed up for another in six weeks and I have to get back to training.  I was cursing my “break” on the treadmill yesterday when I wanted. to. die.

Ugh I hear you!!  The hardest part for me is getting ready for the gym – I make up so many excuses NOT to go.  I am fine once I get into the car and physically driving there though…I did give up being a lazyass for Lent though so now I have to go.

This is how I say motivated at the gym (I am there for 40-55mins).  Our gym has little tvs on each machine so I bring my iPod and some headphones to listen – I check which shows are on each night so I sometimes plan my workouts around the tv (pathetic, I know!  but it helps me stay at the gym longer!!).  I used to bring a magazine that I saved specifically for the gym and would read it cover to cover – that way I also covered the time on the machines so I wouldn’t constantly stare at it.   There are also music programs you can download on you iPod/MP3 player which plays music to match your workout – for ex:  the music gets faster and more upbeat when you have to intensify your workout – that way its switching it up a bit.

I hear you on this one! I’m actually sitting on the couch right now trying to get myself to GET UP and go work out. I keep telling myself “I’ll go during the next commercial break!”

Week 9?  What program are you doing?

I’m on week 3 of my self-made program and this morning was killer.  Maybe it’s just one of those days 😛

I thought my legs were going to fall off during spinning today. Glad it was my last Friday noon class – it was too much to fit 40 minutes of spinning into a 60 minute lunch break.

Agreed! I always go for my run right after I take my dog out for his walk because if I sit down for even a minute, I know I won’t get back up.  This morning I made my dog wait until 10 before his walk so I could stay in bed longer. 🙁 I’m such a bad dog mamma. haha.

I hate working out on fridays too! it feels so wrong somehow…lol. Luckily the gym is at work…(I work at a hospital that has a fitness center) and as long as I get my butt over there before sitting anywhere Im fine. I went yesterday for an hour and a half! I did a resistance band class and one of the bands I was using snapped and hit me straight on the @$$ and now I have a big red mark/bruise. Now thats dedication! lol
