Gym motivation..

Help, I need motivation to get up off the sofa.  The time is now 7:00 pm and I am suppose to be at the gym by 7:30, the latest.  I haven’t even eaten anything yet.  I see all these ads about what I should stuff my mouth with before heading out, but I’m not really in the mood for peanut butter and bananas… ewww. Peanut butter, banana sandwich????  Who created that?  Potassium and protein for the fittest, on bread.  But wait, I thought bread was bad for you?!?  This craze about what and what not to eat drives me nuts. Can’t I eat what I want? I’ll burn it off anyway right? Anyway, I always end up eating right before the gym, then get angry with myself because of what I ate.  That’s what motivates me to go to the gym…. calories.

What to wear to the gym?

Can I NOT wear sweat pants to the gym? I heard that the proper attire for the gym really makes the work out better. Seems like the tighter the gear, the better. But my skin can’t breathe.  How? And why?  Will I squat better when wearing tights opposed to wearing sweatpants or something? Who came up with these rules?!? Idk! It’s all strange to me.  I just want to be comfortable. And men, please stop wearing  grey or gray sweats however you want to spell it.  Big no no.  The print of your manhood shows and it keeps staring at me, but that’s besides the point. How dare your girl OR guy let you walk out the house with those devilish things on.  It’s so right, I mean wrong in every way.  That’s what motivates me to go to the gym.  Clearly, I’m kidding.

But really, what motivates you all to go to the gym.

  1. I’m not a good role model in this department, as I let my gym membership expire a couple months ago. BUT…when I need a workout but am too lazy to leave the house, I commit to just 10 minutes of running on the spot/jumping jacks/knee lifts/push ups/etcetera, in front of the TV. It’s not an amazing workout, but it’s better than nothing. And usually, after the 10 minutes are up, I keep going. And I usually do break a sweat, so it’s not nothing!


    1. Thats good if that works for you. Seems like you have to do what you have to do. At least you get a workout in for the day. I do the same, but am mostly too drained to even think about working out. Like tonight. I think I did enough walking around in Joanne fabrics which equates to a great workout for me. Can I get an Amen!!!!
