Since I am short on time and hair (yes, still pulling-out my hair over the end of school), here is an article originally published last May. Hope you enjoy it.
I’m just sitting here trying to come up with a good excuse to not exercise. I keep telling myself that my muscles need to recover from yesterday. They really do. Then I tell myself that if I do exercise, I’ll feel better for the rest of the day. What should I do?
Actually what I am trying to do is "guilt" myself into doing something that I really don’t feel like doing. I go through this everyday and I must say I am getting tired of it. From day to day, the excuses become lamer and lamer. What I really need is some huge Terminator-type personal trainer to get me motivated. It would be a combination of fear and envy. Fear, that he would actually follow through with his threats and envy, that I really would like to look like him.
The only problem is, I don’t have the $300 an hour I would need to hire Arnold. That’s where I kind of envy these Hollywood types. Why? Because they have the money to hire these people who not only motivate them, but show them the right exercises to do. Me, I have the pamphlet that came with my Total Gym and my own ability to guilt myself into doing it.
