I really don’t want to go to the gym today.

It’s a very hot day here in Sydney.

I feel stressed by all the tasks on my to-do list.

There are no classes on that I like, so I’d have to do my own thing. Which I don’t feel like.

I’m not in the mood.


However, it’s Christmas Party season, and I have some very cute dresses to wear.

And ultimately, this is why I want to be slim – to wear cute clothes.

It may not be a good weight-loss reason, according to other people.

But it’s my true weight-loss reason. The one that keeps me motivated on days when the reasons I should work out – it’s good for me – aren’t enough to combat the excuses.

Days like today.

So I don’t feel like it, but I’m going.

Join me?
