I need help

I am completely lacking in motivation right now.

Here I sit, again, at Day 1. This is my third attempt at going just seven days with exercising every day.

I would have been almost there today (I believe this would have made Day 6), but I completely skipped out on the gym last night.

I went to the gym. But I didn’t actually do anything while there.

I also skipped Zumba last night… with a solid reason, or so I thought. I was working on graduation presents because the 30% off sale ended yesterday. Lo and behold, my inbox had a message today saying they were now 50% off. Curses. You made me skip Zumba.

I have no motivation to do anything besides Zumba for some reason… I know I really want to start to run, especially since I have a goal of running in Disney next Feb. But… I just can’t seem to start back on the c25k program again (my buddies, this would be a great moment for some help! lol).

I started to work on a Goals/Rewards list as a motivation of sorts, but I can’t figure out what else to add on there…. maybe someone has some suggestions as to what I can add?

So far:

  • 5 lbs: Zumba Shirt (this one’s already done! yay)
  • 10 lbs: new shoes (I love me some shoes)
  • 15 lbs: Glee cd… 🙂
  • 20 lbs: new dress

Besides that, I have no idea what to think of!!! What does everyone else have for their motivations?

    My motivation is to get back into the clothes I wore three years ago! Maybe you are trying to do too much too quickly. Do your Zumba clsses three times a week and enjoy every minute. Exercising should be enjoyable: otherwise we stop doing it!

      I usually go to more than 3x a week – I’m going through instructor training in about a month for Zumba, and have been going 4-5 times a week since January.

      My problem is I have no motivation to throw anything else in too. 😦 I want to, so that it builds up my endurance, but it’s just not working.

      I think you have something with the too-much-too-quickly part, but I have no idea what the next baby step is! lol.

    I personally don’t think you need to do anything else. Aerobic type exercises are good for endurance and you are doing those already. You need to give your body time to rest. And when you are stronger, you can Zumba 7 times a week 🙂
