But I am soo tired. I don't give a crap, get to the gym.

It is hard to explain the internal struggle and bargaining that goes on in my head every morning. "You road your bike last night, you don't need to work out this morning." "You were working on a shed and sweating your butt off, stay in bed" or my favorite. " I will get there tomorrow, I really need the sleep, I just feel so tired." Well of course you feel tired, your alarm just went off.

It has been like that this week, I still have made it to the gym twice and did get some pretty good rides in. So all in all I am feeling pretty good about my exercise this week. I still intend on hitting it tomorrow morning and again Sunday and Monday to try to get back in a groove, but all in all I am pleased. So I suppose what I need to analyze is what is bringing me back. Part of it is was the gains I saw a couple of weeks ago, but the part that I always forget about is the feeling you get from getting in a good workout. It just makes you feel better. I am more awake and alert. More ready to face the day. hopefully when I fall off track again and get out of the groove I can look back on this and realize the ultimately you just feel better when your are moving your body.

I can really relate to the struggle with exercise. I am starting to hit that point now too though where I want that "high" I get from a good workout so that helps ;)

I can't exercise in the evening and then again the following morning. Just doesn't work for me. Excuses are a dime a dozen...weightloss: PRICELESS!

Keep at it and fight the good fight!

"...internal struggle and bargaining..." I couldn't have said it better. I tend to argue with myself as well. Great post!

I can relate to the ease for which the justifications come sometimes. I've slept in many a-morning where I was just "too tired" to get up.

Good for you for getting it done!
