Exercise Log 9

The truth is, I haven't been doing very well.  I have also been doing AWFUL at keeping track lately.  Not sure why, but it's the truth.

I know why I haven't been motivated - I'm EXHAUSTED.  I mean, seriously, went to bed at 7:30 last night.  And slept through until my alarm went off at 6 this morning, and still could barely drag myself out of bed.  I know there are people who say "You're getting too much sleep then" that's not a problem for me.  I feel like I need a nap every day - kind of like when I had mono.  Except I'm pretty sure I don't.

I did run last Thursday - made a mile in 11:50.  Thought I was going to die after, but I pushed hard to finish in less than 12 minutes.  I don't know why, but that was pretty important to me.

What do you do to stay motivated when you are tired?  Any tips for beating exhaustion?

No tips, just commiserating. I cannot force myself to get out of bed and work out when I'm exhausted. Just doesn't happen. Wish I knew the secret!

my tip for when you are exhausted- make a deal with yourself to just move for 10 minutes. If you are still tired after that- quit. If not (and you probably won't be) finish your workout!

I can't do it when I'm tired either. I have to work out at night. I know they say not to and such, but I'm already awake and that's when I can fit it in. Very few things get me out of bed.
