Such a procrastinator I am.

 I have come to the realization that I am truly a visual person.  I NEED the visuals in order to become and to stay motivated.   I can have no interest in working out, look at someone's progress photo and that is the push that I need to get off my behind.  I don't know why that is.  I know I'm a competitive person.  When I'm viewing someone else's progress photos, while I'm thinking, If they can do it then I can do it too.... I'm not really thinking that I can lose more or do it quicker than they did.  So it may not be because of my competitiveness but I guess more so inspiration.   I've also come to the realization that I'm even more of a procrastinator than I thought.  Yes,  the little project that I was working on mid January for 3 weeks kept me plenty busy and prevented me from working out. Well I could've worked out  had I not been run ragged, and dog tired when I got off.  I had no energy to do anything other than eat( and I even skipped  that a few times) and sleep.   After things returned to normal, I really had no excuse not to work out other than the fact that I just didn't feel like it.  Like I've said  in previous posts, I wake up having every intention of getting a work out in, but as the day drags on, it starts looking less and less like that will be happening.  Then my mind starts to churning and making up excuses in addition to the ones that my body has already come up with.  Today I decided that I just needed to do it and I did but my stamina wasn't anywhere  near where it should've been,  hell, it wasn't anywhere  near where it was when I started at the beginning of the year.  Nevertheless,  I got up and moved something.

I am still undecided about renewing my Bally's  membership. I just really hate driving that far. They have offered me a 20% discount on my membership renewal fee which is somewhat of an incentive so I really need to give that some thought.   There are 2 Bally's near me.  The one closest to me which is about 15-20 minutes away, you have to deal with the men trying to hit on you while you are working out, plus the amenities aren't that great.  I mean, I go in there and I put on my IPOD and you still have dudes trying to chat when it is obvious that i don't want to be bothered.  The other ( which is about 30 minutes away) allows me to work out in peace.  I love the set up of the place and they have a wider variety of equipment to use.  I mean you have your oglers there as well but they won't bother you unless invited.   When it gets warmer out, I also have a walking/running track near my home which I could also put to good use.  

The summer will be here before I know it and I've already wasted 2 months this year.  From here on out I will stay on the grind tweaking my diet and exercising regularly ( regularly for me means at least 3 days per week) although once I get my mojo back I'm sure that I will be working out considerably more than that.
