For those of you who know me in real life, when it comes to exercise, I’m not about that life. I’m very into yoga, because it’s disguised as something peaceful and relaxing, but when it gets to be intense work outs, I’m all set. However, recently, my boyfriend, our friend, and myself all joined Planet Fitness. They’ve been going to the gym regularly all semester, but I wanted to join as well, thinking that having a group to go with with subconsciously motivate me to go.
Well I was wrong. Our three schedules are rather conflicting, and I find myself forcing myself to go to the gym alone. I’ve tried bribing myself, I’ve tried a hundred different playlists on Songza (recently: #BadBitchAlert has proven successful), and I’ve broken out the Netflix app and began watching Orange Is The New Black while working out. (Which by the way, I obviously did not think through, and I suggest you don’t watch in public. Watch That 70s Show instead).
But also on top of all of this, my problem is that my lack of motivation to go to the gym is a snowball effect, and if I don’t go today, I DEFINITELY won’t go tomorrow. So I guess what I’m asking is how do you motivate yourself to be active? Leave me a comment or follow me on Twitter/Instagram at @SuperKatieJean !
