Default A way to get yourself to go to the gym?

I always feel like I want to go especially because it makes me feel and look better when I do but it's hard for me to do it. I was wondering if anybody had any ideas in how you get motivated to go

Sometimes i find when i have a shower in the morning that gets me motivated to go..

Also forcing your self to get otu i also found made me more motivated because if you do things your enjoy the morelikely you will do it more often.

*Hugz* Lack of motivation comes greatly with depression and is also very hard to get so i know how ya feel.

I recently started to go to the gym. It makes me feel good for a couple hours afterward, but then I begin to feel like crap again. I know it's going to be a lot of hard work to get out of this.

Just get out of your house, get in the car/walk there. Don't look back. You'll thank yourself afterward. Soon it will become routine.

I walk to the gym. It gets me outside, in the light, and I stay longer because it took 20minutes to get there instead of 5.

Also make yourself a really good working out playlist or cd, full of happy, up-beat music that makes you want to sweat. "Die Another Day" by Madonna always makes me push myself.

Oh and try downloading some episodes of Biggest Loser to your iPod, or watching it before you go. Watching people, in much worse shape than I am, work out for seven hours a day helps me get through my two hours. If they can do it, I can!

My advice is not to think about it, just get up and do it. You know you'll feel great after, and you know it's doing your body good! If you go first thing in the morning just keep your mind empty until you're out the door. It works for me.
