Motivation

6 years ago

I’m lacking it. My family and I met up with our good friends to walk around the Phoenix Zoo tonight for the annual ZooLights event.  It was amazing, freezing, and an all around good time.  The kids loved it, and I spent the whole time pissed that I forgot my camera.  Sure I had my cell phone, but that thing is practically prehistoric so the pictures are just completely disastrous.  Oh well.  I figure we walked at least over a mile around the Zoo, but now that I’m home I just can’t work up the motivation to go to the gym.

I put my workout clothes on, even my tennis shoes.  Then I sat on the couch and moped. Blaine has plans tonight, and Dan is to sleepy to come with me.  Then the shoes came off, and then I laid down.

I need to go so badly.  I haven’t been since Friday night.  I miss it, but right now going alone is just not something I’m up for.  I’m hoping in the morning I will be more pumped.  Actually, regardless of how I feel in the morning, I WILL GO!

I’m feeling bad about how lazy I’ve been since Saturday.  It’s a feeling that I know a good workout will wash away.

Do you guys ever feel this way?  Do you know you need to do something, but just can’t muster up the motivation to get it done?  What kinds of set backs have you experienced? What did you do to regain your motivation?
