Why It Is Important To Know Why We Exercise

As the weather outside gets cooler and fall quickly turns into winter, I know people begin to get very unmotivated to stay in shape and get their daily exercise in. The shorter days tend to make people sleepy after work, and the thought of working out is thrown out the window as one drives by the gym. Nothing would have made me feel better than to go home and curl up on my couch instead of working out yesterday. The weather conditions fit my mood perfectly. However, I then remembered why I workout. I work out because it is my daily happy pill. It keeps me sane. It's one hour of the day I have to myself. I have come so used to exercising that it is as natural to me as brushing my teeth or taking a shower. I have engraved it in my daily life and nothing budges that appointment I have with myself and the other man named "Gym.”
I think many people exercise because they want to lose weight or build muscle. They want to fit in the clothes they haven't fit in for years. They want to feel better and have increased energy. There are so many different reasons, yet what happens when all those goals are met? What happens when all|all of your clothes are too big? The high we get from reaching our goals is awesome! It lasts a long time, but then we always seem to lose focus. The work-outs become boring no matter how much variety your fitness trainer uses. At home you might find yourself reaching for a cookie thinking, " I'm in my skinny jeans.It doesn't matter.” The zest for working out|exercising is lost. What do we do now?!?!
I suppose my message today is that while all those reasons above are fantasic reasons to start working out, you need a reason that will nerver expire. Maybe it is because you want to prevent diseases that being overweight may bring. Have you ever thought of running a race that raises money for a certain issue? How about relay for life? Or there is an organization called Girls on the run that teaches young girls how to run their first 5k. It is amazing how exercising doesn't seem to be exercising when you put a reason behind it. It might even be reasons like personal enjoyment, self-confidence, creating clarity or living a longer and healthier life. Those are all things that can't be measured by a tape measure or scale.
On a personal noteAfter I broke my foot in July I promised myself that I would never create excuses to not work-out. At that point in time I would have given anything to have the ability to exercise. What if you didn't have the ability to go for a jog or simply walk outside. Think about those things the next time you don't want to work up a sweat.
