Your mental state before you start a workout can play a big part in how that workout goes. Yes, working out can help improve your mental state by pumping those endorphins through and relieving stress. But who wants to just “get” through a workout? Enjoying the workout and being proud of it is so much more beneficial.
We all have those days that we just don’t want to workout, but we do anyway. Take notice of how many days in a row those feelings are happening. You may need to make some transitions.
For one thing your really going to have to change your attitude about working out. What is it that has you thinking “I don’t wanna”? Double check it’s not a negative person you are around that is encouraging these thoughts. It may be subtle, but if they feel guilty about not working out and are jealous of your motivation, they could be sabotaging your workouts.
It could be time for a change. I know for me, I’ve been working out in the same little gym for 3 years now. The only classes we have are the one’s I put together and they have to be some kind of circuit training or small bootcamp. We just don’t have the room for more. I love my gym, but after 3 years of the same thing, I can honestly tell you I’m getting bored. My husband has had the same issue. So I will be adding some new fitness Dvd’s at home, I’m going to check into the yoga class through our parks & rec and there is always fitv for some free workouts to change things up.
By going into your workouts with a better attitude you are ensured to get much more from it. Enjoying your workout will help you push harder. You’ll improve your cardio, your stability, your muscle strength much faster if you push it.
