creeping thoughts

Most days I wake up and I feel good and I can't wait to get to the gym. I look forward to it for many reasons but one of them is the fact that I do have an hour on my own as the girls go to the sitting room. Sometimes I have both girls, sometimes I have one. 

For the first time in a long while I woke up today and my stomach had a nervous/nauseous feeling. I use to feel this way MOST MORNINGS, but now I have not. As I eat my breakfast I think of how I don't have either girl today, one has school, one has an art class. Which means that IF I didn't go to the gym, I could come home and shower, fold the laundry, why I could even just sit down and watch a tv show for myself without hearing, momommmmmmyyyy 50 times. And it is there that the thoughts start creeping into my head of reasons why maybe I should not go to the gym. Fuckers this has not happened to me and I am mad it is. I don't want to feel that way. Today is the day to swim with the ironlady and I really NEED this part of my workout. Which means I will put those thoughts OUT of mine and push through them. 

What do you do when you just don't feel it ? What thoughts get you out there and motivated ?


  1. Just get dressed/ready for the gym and that's half the battle. You'll get there!

  2. we all get those thoughts, of course. and sometimes we give in. and that is ok. i typically listen to the thoughts and try to understand if they are just excuses, or maybe i do need that time off. then, the decision is easier, because it is i, not my thoughts, that makes the decision.

  3. I remember how my jeans felt a little tight the last time I put them on -- that is all the motivation I need :)

    Seriously, most of my battle is getting out of bed. Once I am up and dressed it gets easier. I too look forward to the hour of not hearing"Mommmmmmyy"

  4. I usually Tweet about it and get encouragement from others to get me to go!
