Much Better, kind of

I have a much better attitude today. I'm still kind of sad about the fact that I can't seem to motivate myself. I rely on others around me, whether it's real motivation or perceived, to get me working out. By perceived, I mean that even though the people at the gym have nothing to do with me while I'm there, they still motivate me. I still think that they're going to think I'm some wimp if I give up after a couple of minutes. Weirdly it motivates me to keep going. I need to work on motivating myself.

I wonder what motivates others to do things on their own?

I had a great workout this morning. I thought I'd only be able to do about 15 minutes on the ellipticl, but I did 25. I lifted weights for about 25 minutes also. Focusing on my arms and shoulders.

So today, I am good again. Other than the face that my face is so swollen from all the tree pollen that I looked lopsided after sleeping on my right side all night. I can't wait for spring to be over so that summer is here and the trees are mostly leafed out.

  1. You are way too hard on yourself. I'd love to be able to go to a gym and workout, but I'm the opposite, I get intimidated by all the people there.

    Your doing a great job! You should be proud of yourself!!
