Do I Workout Today?

You know, after coming from a rigorous activity, I have this tendency to rest and relax for like maybe a week or so.  I know, I know, it's like when you're on a diet and you've been good at it for a while, then one day, kaboom!  You indulge, thinking you deserve it as a reward for all those times you held back on an extra serving.  

So that's me after a long run.  After punishing myself, I pamper myself with rest.  Nothing wrong with that, for a few days but when it extends to a week, then someone has to really kick my butt and get me off this chair.  Muscle pain is just a good excuse for two or three days. So right now, I really don't have any more reason to be sitting around most times.  Yeah, yeah, I do have my lazy moments but I will not take being human as an excuse.  That's why we need to be constantly motivated, and not just once, but as many times as we need to.

Well, I found this one, asking a good question that many of us ask ourselves.  It seems that the only good excuse is when you're really totally indisposed.  I'm no gym junkie, but this still makes sense, after all, it's for our own well-being.  Discipline really takes a lot of conscious effort.

    I definitely need this flowchart pinned on my wall or somewhere I can always see it! LoL. My workout is in the form of Zumba, and I only do it here at home at the moment, though I plan on doing it outside at a studio/gym to keep me motivated. And when you're at home, I do tend to laze around. This sure is a great share! Glad I dropped by here. LoL

  16. It would be more fun to have an exercise buddy. That way, you can encourage each other especially when one is losing track of his/her fitness goals.

  17. We are planning to have Zumba at least 3x a week. We will do it at home na lang, Daddy and I. We have started to lessen carbs intake and do some little exercises like sit ups and push ups. In fairness, may improvement naman. Hehe... I know now, time is never an excuse if you have the will =)

  20. No workout for me today and on other days. I will just ride my bike on my way to work. Haven't tried going to a gym. By the way, this is one of the two blogs that always remind me to live healthy. Thanks to you and to another blogger friend.

  21. really interesting infographic.. I try to exercise but really hard without a exercise partner.

  22. Just like our faith, if there is no follow up we tend to let the "fire gone off" but with constant reminders we can keep the "fire burning".

  23. Well there are just times that slack off and do nothing after having that great week of exercise. I often felt like this and most of the time I feel guilty that I should have been continuing things what I have started. You're right sometimes we need to have someone to kick us in the butt just to get going.

  24. Sis, para ba sa akin yan?hehe I vowed to work out everyday. Did good last Monday kahit na super bagyo dito sa Baguio (3 k at the treadmill). Consistent kahapon (3k sa treadmill and 2o minutes on the stepper. Today, ate my second lunch at 3PM . Yun ang exercise haha. Hayy sana maging consistent ako cuz my midlife belly is showing na (consistent din since eight years ago hehe) Uyy, congrats on your other blog's custom domain!

  25. i love it when you post infographics. hehe. yeah, i'm in need of a serious work-out too. but i don't own my time these days so it's very hard to squeeze in some exercise time. i really hope i can achieve that before the year ends.

  29. Yeah, we often say we have a cheat day, lol... it really takes focus and discipline, which when it comes to exercising and dieting, I fail. hay!

  30. I used to be very motivated to hit the gym because of badminton. I saw how it helped my game. Now though, it seems my only exercise is badminton and I get out of breath now. My problem is motivation lately.

  31. I love the graphics. Some days, I feel like putting my feet up and staying home but I know that going to work out feels great afterwards. Exercise has been great for my mental and physical health and so I make the effort to get to the gym. Last week, I was sick so I chose to walk instead... It felt great. A little bit is better than nothing.
