This post is inspired by a conversation my wife and I had this morning. Perhaps you can relate to what we talked about.
Bedtime is one of our favorite parts to our day.
But only the part that we are actually in bed and ready to go to sleep.
Getting ready for bed is one of our least favorite parts to our day.
Even though we can’t wait to go to sleep, the process of getting to that point (going upstairs, taking a shower, brushing teeth, etc.) always seems like a chore.
We usually find ourselves stalling to go to bed, and often end up making it to bed later than we should.
It is interesting how we let something we loathe delay something we love.
Working out can be the same way.
There’s not a person on earth who doesn’t feel great after a workout, yet it is easy to never make it to your workout because the things that must precede a workout can seem like a hassle.
Who wants to plan to go to the gym and pack the necessary gear the night before? Who wants to drive to the gym, when it’s just as far (or shorter) to just go home? Who wants to push them self during a workout, when they would be more comfortable not?
Give yourself the chance to feel great about working out.
Don’t let small obstacles prevent you from getting to the gym.
