I KNOW I should move more, but I find exercise so boring. I was put off at school after being given top marks for effort and D minus for achievement. I thought 'I'm working my hardest and getting nowhere, so why bother?' - teachers weren't so understanding back in the day! I have tried going to clubs - but everyone else goes with their friend and I am on my own, so I get a bit disheartened - even though I try to make friends there. My other half has a very physical job so doesn't feel like going for a walk, or joining a dance class or things like that. My son with whom I used to go to the gym has now left home and I can't afford the gym any more. I am so unmotivated to exercise. I do go for a walk at lunch time and I do try to get on my exercise bike while I watch tv, but I am not thrilled.
These are all excuses, I know, and I know that I will continue to get on my exercise bike and be bored. I am just throwing out a few thoughts and feelings as to why I (and probably a lot of others) procrastinate about doing exercise.
I am also going to take a photo of me and stick it up in my little exercise room! Maybe that will give me an incentive!
