It”s a celebration of sorts in my house today. Today I graduated to putting my gym gear on.
That”s a big deal.
You see, I”ve had them sitting neatly in a pile in my bedroom for about a week now, just in case I find the time to go.
Every day I look at the clothes with good intentions. Every day the pile sits there, unmoved.
So, today I put them on.
Perhaps by the end of the day I might actually take the next casino online step and put my runners on. Wooooaaaahhh, steady up. Little steps people. Let”s just start with the clothes. No need to rush this.
Then when the night draws to a close, I”ll take my gym gear off and put it all in the washing basket, thus giving me an excuse as to why I haven”t gone to the gym yet. “My gym gear”s dirty”, I”ll proclaim with undeserved bravado.
Got any tips to get motivated?
I put my gym gear on to this morning….. Then made pancakes and folded the washing : )…. Make yourself a gym mix (dodgy dance & a bit of beyonce) on your iPod and start with a walk around the suburbs either sunrise or sunset. Sounds great & looks pretty you’ll want to do it again x fab shoes btw xx
Have just found my motivation. 10yr school reunion AT THE BEACH. Holy hell! The gym clothes will be put on, then sandshoes and I’ll go purely so that the only painfully embarrassing part of that event is remembering what it was like being in high school.
I’ve recently started running again after a 6 month winter hiatus. It’s not easy to get myself out the door but once I’m moving it’s great. For me it helps to say it out loud ‘I’m going for a run tonight’ and then picture myself doing it all day. You can do it B! x
Gym gear is often all day wear for Mums. I can help you with de-motivation. I recently broke up with my gym to pursue a deeper relationship with large cappuccinos, chocolate (Lindt) and blogging. I’m still fitting in my skinny jeans (deep breath – just)
If you find your motivation can you ask it if it knows where mine is hiding out?
Points for putting it on.
I live in gym wear because 1) my feet get all achy if I don’t have proper support,
And 2)it gives the illusion I am a super fit sporty mum,
I go as an excuse for not cleaning and for the free childcare 😉
Gym gear? Isn’t that what the trends Mums wear when they gather in groups to have their coffees?
I sleep in exercise-y clothes and make the most of the minutes of post sleep delirium when the alarm goes off in the morning. Before I have actually had a chance to wake up, I am downstairs pulling shoes on and out the door all before I am actually awake. Once I am out, it is great to wake up and enjoy the early morning peace and quiet before the madness of the day begins.
