As much as I like working out, the lazy part of me likes NOT working out more.
Sure, the endorphin rush is awesome, but if I had the option, I would not mind sleeping in and skipping the gym altogether.
Yes, my love/hate relationship with the gym continues!
And as fun as not working out it, I just got a solid reminder of how easy it is to fall off the gym bandwagon.
Between pre-Sundance work, being in Park City and then post-Sundance exhaustion, I have not worked out for two weeks. Naively, I thought it would be easy to jump back in to the routine.
Then I went to the gym yesterday, tried to work out and wanted to crawl home.
I’m not even being slightly dramatic.
Then this morning, I went again and did better, but still was barely getting through my old routine.
Two weeks away felt like two years! It’s amazing how fast you can lose your momentum.
And what’s worse, is getting back in the early morning routine. The alarm goes off at 5:30 am and I want to knock it off the nightstand. But, I slowly get myself up and go, I mean, it has to get easier right?
I know this is only temporary and I’ll be back in the routine again soon but holy cow.
I definitely need to be better about working out while I’m traveling, why is that so difficult?
Do you find it easy to get back in your workout or other routines after being gone for a while?
