You know you should exercise. Yet you still struggle to get it done. You can’t seem to find the time, have various injuries, or any number of other excuses.
I think it comes down to not liking it enough. If you like something, you will make time for it.
Much like meditation, you need to commit to a regular exercise plan, and it can take a little time before you will start to see the benefits and enjoy it. I’m still working on my meditation habit, but exercising I have down.
I love to exercise. I usually enjoy the time spent actively working out; but, what I enjoy most is how I feel after. That’s the reason I do it and the reward for me.
Despite knowing that I like it and clearly understanding the reward, there are still plenty of days where it’s hard, and I don’t feel like doing it.
On those days I still have to push myself out the door. But I’m (almost) always happy when I do it, even if I am tired and unmotivated when I start.
I like to exercise so much I overtrained myself into a 10-pound weight gain, which obviously sucked. The weight gain was bad enough, but I also ended up far less fit all while exercising six days/week. So the amount and the type of exercise you are doing can make a big difference. More is not always better.
