Very poor effort

I put in a very poor effort at the gym this morning. I saw a friend I had not seen for a while and as both of us like to talk, that's what we did. In the back of my mind I kept thinking I will go now but the conversation just rolled. I ended up doing a slow 30 minutes on the bike (as instructed by physio) but missed my weights. I chose the bike over the weights so we could carry on chatting.

Not good I know, and this is happening more and more often, even on the weekend when I went earlier than my usual time, I still saw people I don't see very often any more. Head down and run in future I think.

I also got a call from the receptionist at my physio saying that my physio was sick and could I reschedule. I really needed that appt today, my shoulder is giving me some grief this week. Also another reason I chose the bike over weights.

Never mind, I will just have to train my clients hard this evening to make up for my lack of effort.

I often ponder the question of who motivates the motivator???
Hope you are able to push yourself a little harder later today!

Actually, it's often my clients, when I think I can't do it, I see in my mind the determination of certain clients when I am pushing them to their limits, and feel I owe it to them to work just as hard.

Other times it's my family. I am doing this to be strong and healthy so that I can live life to the max with them for a very long time.
