Why it’s so hard to go there?




We all know the benefits of working out, yes We’ll  live longer. Hopefully we won’t break out in a sweat opening up a box of hot pockets. I may even see my feet without leaning forward (just like an inch). These are all valid reasons to workout. Yet I like so many of us, find myself sitting in the parking lot staring at the gym and thinking …Do I really need to go? I’m not that fat(BTW Yes, Yes I am). Even when we live a positive lifestyle, those pesky little negative thoughts find a way to creep in.

I have these thoughts almost every time I go. The crazy part is, once I’m in the door, I feel great! It doesn’t matter if I’m doing the dreaded cardio stairs or lifting weights. I feel amazing. The Positive will always outweigh the negative. I wish I was one of those guys or girls you see on Instagram or YouTube waking up all pumped to get to the gym, but I’m not. Chances are I may never be one of those people. I will however continue to think of creative reasons on why its OK to skip the gym. As long as in the end, I remember no matter how great of a reason I come up with not to go, I know the real benefits will always be better. Here are a quick 10 reasons to go to the gym!
