Working out when feeling Blah~~

Not in the workout Mood!!

Do you have those days when the couch looks a more appealing then getting in a good workout?
Today is that day for me, I feel exhausted, and worn out.
The day is cloudy, mix of snow, rain, and sleet coming down. Yuck!

I know my body needs the exercise, I have been working out long enough to know once I get started I will feel better. Its just the getting started part that is hard.
But.....I decided to get in the gym, even if I did a little its better than nothing at all.
I went to the gym, got on the treadmill and started at a fast walk, turned into a light jog, which turned into a run.
4 miles later......I am feeling revived, more energy, and happy.
Continued on with floor work, weights, and heavy bag.

My Sunday is turning out better than I thought, I will save my couch time for tonight when I will watch a movie with my hubby.
Life turns out the way you want it when you make the right choices, And we can all choose to do something to make our days better, for me that is getting in a good run.

Hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday!
What do you do to get out of your slump/funk?


  1. I often have a "funk" where I don't feel like working out, but just like you I find that if I just get started, I end up loving my workout :) :)

    1. It always seems to make the day a bit better. :)

  2. I was ready to pull my hair out on Sunday and went to the gym instead. Did 4 miles at 5.0 incline and was a sweaty mess. Felt so much better after that run. Some days the run just chases away the blahs doesn't it ?
    check out today's blog post for a great Green Soup recipe.

  3. There are many times that I don't feel like working out, but push myself with a lot of self talk because I always feel good when it's over!

  4. I do the same thing Debbie, and it always feels better.
    But I do have some days where I really just need couch and a book day. :)
