Get motivated!

I have been working mandatory overtime since the beginning of the year, and last week my overtime hours were increased from 10 hours/month to 10 hours/week. Coinciding with that, I upped my gym membership from 2 days/week to 3 days/week. Needless to say, I’m exhausted … but trying to remain positive.

Yesterday, I was so tired and grumpy that the last thing I wanted to do after work was work out. The siren call of my couch was overwhelming. My work schedule has been interfering with my sleep schedule and my eating schedule – so help me if I’m going to let it mess with my fitness schedule, too!

So yesterday afternoon I decided I needed to psyche myself up for the gym. Here’s what I came up with:

  •      I get to rock my new galaxy tank top. (I was going to take a photo of me wearing the shirt, but by the time I remembered, I was all sweaty and un-pretty. So you get the stock photo instead).

  •      I get to see all my FIT friends. You know, I never thought I would enjoy working out in a group, but these guys make it so much fun! Not to mention the encouragement, accountability, and sense of community. Did I mention how much I love Fun Intelligent Training?

  •  I get to eat a banana after my workout, and the carbs don’t count toward my daily allotted 100g!

  •     Going to the gym is certainly better than working late.

In case you’re wondering, yes, I went to the gym yesterday. Then came home, ate dinner, and promptly fell asleep on the couch. I might need to come up with a new list to get me through tomorrow’s Bootcamp class
