Fitness has taken over my life. Lol. It isn’t as bad as it sounds. Being fit makes life easier. No matter what the occasion, fitness will never hurt. Whether your friends want to go mountain biking, rock climbing, hiking, you are always up for the challenge. Knowing and experiencing all this, I still find that getting to the gym sometimes seems like a chore. I still weigh the pros and cons of going to the gym. I try to make excuses saying, “I didn’t get enough sleep last night” or ” I will do extra work tomorrow”. It always seems like a great idea at the time. When I do skip a day, I always feel terrible. It feels like I have let myself down. I feel that all i have been working for is just slipping away. So I end up just sucking it up and going. I always feel better afterwards. All that being said, skipping a day is not always bad. Rest days are needed. Nobody is superman. There are many legitimate reasons for missing a workout. I just have to make sure it is legitimate before I make the decision. If you ever feel that way just know you are not alone. We all feel it. Stay motivated people. I will see you guys in the gym.
