Excuses Excuses

When it comes to exercise, I never seem to run out of excuses not to get off my butt. Last night while watching the disappointing game 2 of the NBA finals, I caught a snippet of a commercial where someone said, "Of course you're plateauing, you're not doing anything!" Were they talking to me? It almost seemed like a personal message from Jillian Michael's. LOL.

Honestly, I haven't earned any activity points this entire week. It's so hard for me to find the motivation sometimes because I run around on concrete for 9 hours straight, five days a week. When I get out of work, the last thing I want to do is be active. So then one might say I should get up earlier in the morning to exercise. That sounds fine and dandy, but I do not work a 9-5. Sometimes my shifts are less than 9 hours apart because for my position they require ANYTIME availability. 

Today is weigh-in day and I know that I lost this past week, but today starts a new week and I really want to focus on exercise. I don't know what it takes to get me going. Maybe a challenge or competition of some sort. I perused the message boards on the WW website, but everybody was so active it depressed me.

I've lost all this weight, but I really want a healthy and lean body. I know I have to exercise to get it. Help?

I was in your boat 2 weeks ago.. I started out (when I first joined WW) exercsing regularly. Then one week I gained .6 pounds and was really frustrated and stopped, it was much easier to stop than start but I don't just want to lose weight- I want to be healthy. So I started again and after the last two weeks I don't hate it as much- in fact I am - believe it or not- sometimes looking forward to it. My kids are on board and keep me on track because they are enjoying our regular exercise. Try and set up a schedule that you can attian. Even if you start doing something 2 times a week and increasing over time to 3-4 times a week. Do what you can but just try and do something. !0 minutes is beter than no minutes!
Good Luck!
