This Weeks Meeting

Hi, my name is Lori and I'm an exercise quitter for the first time in my life.  I stopped exercising daily approximately 10 days ago.  I've tried exercising three times since then and I usually am able to talk myself out of it (or we've half-cracked it.... a 4 mile run? naah lets do a 2 mile walk).  Finding justification has been simple with all that's going on in my life. I can't deny that the sleep has felt nice.  I can't remember when I've had so many nights of 7-8 hours of sleep.  However, this action has created quite the negative impact otherwise: I'm more tired, feel crappy, find myself losing my motivation, and miss hanging out with Amanda at the butt-crack of the morning.  

I now call this meeting to order.  All of us exercise quitters... and exercise blog quitters.... need to band together and overcome the funk.  Ready?  I am.  Who else is in?

Me! It's so true. I talk myself out of exercising enough lately that I only do it 3 or 4 times a week. I tell myself its because I am prego and tired, but in reality I am probably more tired because I didn't exercise that day and chose to eat crap instead. Boo! Can somebody hold me accountable? Otherwise I am afraid of the weight gain this pregnancy might have in store for me!

Megan, you can always check in here to be accountable.

I'm going to start blogging more. yes yes I am. Give me crap if I don't blog about my workouts... or lack thereof. haha.

I totally agree! I've kind of exercised, but not like I should, and not like I did a month or so ago. And blogging... haven't even had a desire to lately! Yes, yes, I need to, and am trying to, get out of this funk! Some days are definitely better than others. But, it's the beginning of a new week! Bike ride on the plan for tonight!! :)
