    It helps me a lot to choose a workout that I like and have fun, without fixing myself on the result, training is something I choose to do, it must have fun and I must like it, if I realize that I don't like a workout and I don't enjoy it, I change and I'm looking for something better

    PETERMORRIS966 I've had a number of days where I am like "ohhh man, i need to rest..." and just seem like I am NOT gonna do ANYTHING. Then I end up mentally working to convince myself to just go do SOMETHING at easier pace, be more gentle and "hang in there". It's a little tough sometime at this early sixties age, but with some determination I find I can do it.

    Changing up the routine or challenge, switching the Darebee program is always "ok" in my mind...be flexible in the training and find enjoyment in it (my best $0.02 suggestions). Hope that may help.

    Be well.

    I have had a whole terrible month at work, and since I finished Ironborn, I'm not really enjoying working out now either. I think that best thing to do would be trying to do what you have to, no matter how lazy you are that day. When I do it I feel stupid because I usually don't perform as much as I would like, but at least it's better than doing nothing.

    The only thing bringing me some kind of joy is going out with the bycicle, but the work done there is minimum and I have burned my skin 5 times in a row by now and is the worst, haha. God bless Spanish Sun I guess.

    I have started 2 programs now to see if they help me focusing again, but I just want to go back to Karate, to be honest. Hope time was faster.

    I find a 'change of scenery' can help. There are many different ways to get yourself moving. CaptainCanuck has a pretty diverse checkin thread.

    It's pretty much the only solution. If it makes you feel not so guilty i'll confess you that i've also been struggling this month, the whole situation around the world, along with the pressure of university, its making this time of the year pretty stressful. (Not wanting to disrespect people who's ACTUALLY having a bad time, obviously..).

    Some days i just would'nt want to do anything, yet there i was, forcing myself to get back at it, because at the end of the day this website managed to make fitness a daily thing in my life, something i thought impossible.

    Take it easy, we'll get trough this. If you don't feel like throwing 100 punches and you just want to walk your dog, then go for it, technically you'll be doing excersise either way.

    Let's keep on rockin' it!

    started a topic Lack of Motivation

    Lack of Motivation

    Since around Easter I have been struggling with motivation. I will several days following what I should be. Then a few days where a light walk is about I will do. Nutrition has been a bit of a challenge as well. By the end of June is will finish MIlitary Fit.
    I guess it is time for me to “pull up my big boy pants” and get the job done!
Working...
