Gym motivation


It’s quite possible I’ve never felt so lazy and unmotivated to get to the gym or do a workout!

Before Christmas I was running 4 times a week, mostly with my double pram, and I did ski for a week but in all honesty I spent more time drinking wine and eating cake than I did on the slopes! And although I’ve been for 2 runs in the last week I’m just not ‘feeling it’.


So here I am trying to psych myself up for a gym session and instead I’m writing about it….and thinking how I should get some new trainers, or new running socks, or download a better workout…..but you know what? None of these things really make you fitter. Maybe a little more comfortable or less bored but they don’t provide your exercise mojo. That can only be found inside ourselves. I’m hoping I may have misplaced mine at the gym though. See you on the other side 🙂

  1. No matter how slow you are, you are still lapping the person sat on the sofa!

    • Thank you! I love that saying and its exactly what I needed to hear today 🙂 I ran 3km, biked 6km and did some body weights so not bad but I haven’t really found my mojo yet tbh. Manyana manyana…
