Sad to say I did not work out as much as I wanted to last week. I can blame it on school or work or I can just face the fact that I would rather relax in my minimal free time than work out. I hope that if I get back into it this week and keep it up, once I start seeing results I'll have more motivation.

It's so hard starting up again, I too would rather watch a movie and sit on my phone and eat shifty food than workout. But I've been finally getting up and doing it all, working out, AND eating healthy, if you need help with motivation I would love to help, we can workout at the same time and talk about it and talk about results or what else we need help on

Thank you so much for your help. Starting up is definitely the hardest part, I'm thinking that as long as in working out at least 15 minutes a day it'll get easier and I'll gain confidence and motivation

Stick with it Libby! You should try to grant your body and health 15 mins a day - which is barely nothing, but will really pay off!

You may add an additional health boost by just walking or jogging outside for another 15 mins - your metabolism needs oxygen and natural lighting for a good serotonin supply - especially in winter. You will find that it's almost as good and way more healthy than some chocolate!  :-)

Plus 1: you will feel great after getting yourself move a little - especially after a stressful day at work or at school.

Plus 2: you will not suffer from bad conscience and may enjoy your lazy time on couch or wherever even more!

Enjoy your new healthy self!

Best!

Thank you for all of the advice! You're totally right, I had a very slow day at school- just worked out a bit and I feel a little better about myself

You may wanna start with the Scientific 7-Minute Workout. It helped me a lot in the beginning and will move (and really challenge in the beginning) your whole body - you'll like it! Just give it a try! :-)

That's very impressive that you are taking responsibility and not making excuses. That's the first step to becoming consistent.

I know the feeling. Something I've gotten much better at over the past year is not being too hard on myself for temporary setbacks, since I now see that this is a long term thing and in always returning to it I make long term progress.

That a great point!

So what you're saying is that you DID workout last week. That's AWESOME! Don't get caught up focusing on what you didn't do, focus on what you did. Keep everything positive. I know it sounds trite but it really helps with motivation. At least for me anyway.

Yore totally right, thanks for the motivation!

You're welcome. Attitude makes a big difference.

Don't be so hard on yourself, I also don't workout as much as I like, but I keep going. The must important it's not to lose motivation. Try to get a balance in your like. Best of luck.
