For legitimate (medical) reasons, I had to stop working out 3 weeks ago. Normally I work out at least 4 days per week, usually 5.
It is said it takes 14 days to create a habit and maybe it's that long to break one?
I got back on the wagon last Thursday, took it slowly and carefully, and felt ok. I haven't exercised since and it's Monday!!
I feel a bit stodgy, I know I'll feel better if I start again, but somehow I have totally lost my motivation and I hate it! I need to start again - pronto - before I lose my habit altogether. Exercise has made such a difference to me, both physically and mentally!
Why is this happening? I am used to long hours, parenting full-time and working very hard in general and suddenly now I just want to stop exercising.
Any tips to getting back on the bandwagon?
