    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    How do motivation

    So Sirc's been a lazy bugger for the last 2 months. My family has a genetic leaning towards gaining weight, or at least that's what I'd like to think. If I keep up a decent workout I will weight about 150lbs walking and in my peak physical condition, I'll be around 140ish depending on how much I lift.

    Anyway, being a lazy butt has put me back up at 155lbs and I'm feeling sluggish and yucky. How do you motivate yourself to train? I've lost a bit of motivation for various reasons. Usually I train to compete, but there is a serious lack of competitions in my area and I can't justify spending the little amounts of money I have to travel vast distances to compete. Please give me ideas to motivate myself to get off my lazy ass and go kick some.

    i dont know if you do this but its something i used to do, and thats make excuses not to train. like, oh my leg hurts today or my hand hurts or i had a hard day at work, i used to actually on my way home from work think up reasons not to train. instead of doing that think of reasons why you should train, for example WOMEN, feeling fit, WOMEN, being able to outwrestle my friends, WOMEN, and so on. now ive sort of gotten to the other extreme where i turn up even when i really shouldnt be training due to injuries etc.

    as far as fghting goes, well just keep training and sparring etc and then when you do get fights you have that much more experience

    Nah, I don't make up reasons NOT to train. I love to do it. I just don't know why I haven't been "feeling" it lately. Although the idea of Emevas raping me kind of scares me.

    I do that all the time. One of my worst excuses was because the gym was too crowded. I'm a tool.

    best advice i ever got on the martial arts:

    "no matter how much you don't want to go to practice, go anyway."

    and my last reason for not going to class:

    my gi didn't get dry in the dryer, or somehow dry it at all. and it was too late to put it back in. i suck.

    Ha, as much as I sweat in class, I might as well not dry my gis after washing them.
