I wasn't in the mood for the gym today. For the most part, I love working out. Exercising revs up my energy level, makes me feel peaceful and happy (thanks endorphins!), keeps me calm and relaxed, helps me decompress from the day, gives me a sense of accomplishment.... I could go on and on. But there are days when I just don't feel like going to the stinky gym! It's a cycle though... if I don't go to the gym I waste my afternoon away by sitting on the couch, watching trash TV, surfing the net and eating snacks that I don't need.
Today, when I was watching my trash TV I came upon Exercise TV on my Comcast On Demand. You can choose a variety of exercise shows from AbBlaster to Den Yoga - what a brilliant idea! I chose the Cardio Mix Biggest Loser and was fully motivated by past Biggest Loser contestants getting pushed around by their trainer, Bob. My heart was pounding and I was sweating by the end, so now I feel better about skipping the gym!
