Should I Workout Today?

I don't care what anyone other healthy living or running blogs say. Working out is not always sunshine and rainbows and unicorns. Some days, you just do NOT want to workout.
Today, I just do NOT want to workout. I slept in, skipping my morning workout. Today we had a potluck party thing at work and I ate... a LOT. Therefore, I feel just groooooss and the idea of hitting a treadmill almost makes me wanna vomit.
I JUST DON'T WANT TO WORKOUT. Not even a little bit.
But, I will.
Some days when you don't feel like working out I am a FIRM believer that means you shouldn't. Sometimes if you're just not feeling it I think it's your bodies way of telling you to sit your ass on the couch and chill.
Some days when you don't wanna workout you just gotta suck it up, stop being a whiny little bitch and get out there anyway. So, that's what I'm gonna go do. Treadmill for a few miles, then a spinning class. Even though I don't want to. Maybe I'll experience that ever-elusive feeling where you'll start feeling it after a few minutes of doing it... doubtful. I think today is just one of those whiny JUST DON'T WANNA DO IT kinda days. And, that's OK.
Shocking revelation ahead: sometimes, you gotta do things you don't wanna do. I know. I was amazed the first time I heard it to.

So, I'm off. Right now.


  1. I have days that I don't want to workout too, but I always do. I even try to talk myself out of it, but somehow I always manage to find the time. Working out is tough business. I hope that you ended up with a good workout and that it was worth it. :-)

    1. Working out is tough business! And, sometimes you just don't wanna go!!!! I'm w/ you though- most the time I somehow talk myself into it, which is good. :)
