**Weekend Workouts**

I had every intention of going to the gym this morning, but I woke up and, immediately,'s not happening, BUT not working out is not an option, so I did my Walk Away the Pounds dvd - 2 miles!  So, I'm okay with not going to the gym - I got a workout in, and that's what's important.

One of my goals for this month was to go the gym, at least, 26 days in March, but I need to modify that - my goal is to workout 26 days this month, and I don't need to go to the gym everyday to do that.  I have PLENTY of workout dvd's for the days when I don't make it to the gym for whatever reason - a sick kid, a busy day, or just needing a change of venue for my workout. :)

I have to admit, when the weekend rolls around I have a much harder time working out!  Fellow blogger Colleen brought this subject up on her FB page at the end of Feb.:
And I told her that I tell myself  I deserve a break on weekends, but, in truth, it's just me being lazy.  Like this morning, I did NOT want to workout!!  I thought -  I don't want to workout today.  And I really, really don't want to get up right now and get dressed, brush my hair, go out in the cold to get in my car to drive over to the gym to workout. I just don't want to go out!!  However, there's no reason I can't get up, walk straight downstairs, and do a workout dvd to get some kind of workout in today!  So, I did.  In the past, I would have talked myself out of working out altogether, so I'm making progress, right?


  1. You can overdo it though. I think it's best to make our goals attainable and work up from there. If you weren't exercising before and you start at 3 times per week and once you get used to that bump it up then you may not feel so frustrated. You're not lazy either. And walking at anytime is good, right? You don't always have to go to the gym. Mix it up. It's so easy to give advice, isn't it?

  2. I have a fear of falling into a rut again if I don't exercise nearly everyday, but, you're right, Darla, there has to be some balance. And if I start overduing it, I may start feeling overwhelmed, so it's something to think about it. Thanks!!
