Hello everyone! Hope your day has started off well. No gym today so I am trying to motivate myself to get going here at my house. I shall be honest with you and tell you that working out at home is much harder for me than it used to be. I still do it BUT it isn’t as easy for me as it used to be. I have to lite a fire under my own ass. I have become so dependant on workout partners that when I don’t have one, it’s just flat-out harder for me. When I try to encourage you to workout at home if you don’t belong to a gym, believe me I understand that it is not easy. When I know Bailey is going to be in my driveway or that T is going to be knocking on my door – that changes everything. Working out alone can be a total forced thing.
How do I get passed that? How do I make it happen? It’s not a choice. I literally tell myself that I have no option. I put music on that motivates me and I carve out the time. Never mind that I may be listening to Josh Groban sing in Italian, it’s what I like. Fast, pounding music isn’t what always gets me through a workout. A five-minute fat burn on the treadmill with T at that gym, that may require some Boom Boom Pow!
I took a break from typing and went in to my gym at my house and did my workout. I did several of the moves from the ballet exercise article that I posted, I like the ones with weights. I also did some P90x moves. I mix it up. I usually always do push-ups and if I want cardio – I add some jump rope and Burpee’s. I’d never admit the burpee part to T, I hate them but they work. Stepping away from some of the pressure that I put on myself, did some exercise and I feel better. Yes, while listening to Josh –
Never think for a second that I believe tossing in that workout is easy for everyone OR that it is easy for me. Some days I’d love nothing better than to sit and watch The Shining. I know if I do that though, the rest of my day will be a struggle to get things done. I have to stay one step ahead of fatigue or it will win. Keep positive and keep going!!
