There Are At Least “100 Reasons You Should Work Out Today”

There is a great post on Sparkpeople.com (the site I use to keep track of my calories in vs. calories out btw) today to help light a fire under your arse on those days when you are lacking the motivation to workout.

Today was one of those days for me,  I woke up and my allergies were kicking me in the face, I was feeling dried out, my throat hurt from breathing through my mouth and my eyes were itching like crazy.  I procrastinated in bed for 20 minutes or more, but at about 5:15 I remembered that I run for me. I’m making the choice each day to run because I love it and because I love what it does for me. So, I dragged myself out of bed, and got myself on the road.

5 wonderful (if stuffy) miles and a 30 minute weight training session later, I got home and waiting in my inbox was 100 Reasons You Should Work Out Today.  Although some of them don’t really fit my reasons for working out, many of them ring true for me, and here are a few that particularly struck me:

2. Because it helps you get stronger

5. Because you have goals you want to reach

57. Because you want to shave time off your running pace

98. Because you want to be stronger than your excuses

100. Because the only workout you ever regret is the one you skip

Which ones in the list speak the most to you?
