Why is the line between self-preservation/recovery/rest and being a P@##Y so narrow?  We all have the voice in our head that tells us to stop or that we dont need to go to the gym today.  The voice can get VERY loud!  But how do we decide to listen to it or not?  Many times it comes down to that inner debate.  Can you tell the voice in your head to shut up and go to the back, or does the voice have some good information that you really should listen to? There are actually some VERY good reasons why you cant or shouldnt go to the gym: there may be some other life priorities that come up, you might be physically tired and beat up, etc (i dont want to give too many here because then they might be used as an excuse and i dont want to be the reason for that HA!!).  But MOST of the time, its just because you are being lazy.  You dont WANT to push yourself and make yourself uncomfortable.  You dont want to make your muscles and your lungs burn. You dont want to make your brain push you to put on some more weight and really push hard through the heavy sets.  You dont want to work.  Again, you need to honestly look at the situation.  Do you need a break or are you just trying to get out of the work?  This step, the debate, is extremely important because it will set you up for what you do other times this comes up.  You need to LEARN if this is really a time to not workout or a time to push through the voice.  The more times you do the right thing, the more you will be able to distinguish between the real need and just the P@##Y voice in the background.  In reality, you know EXACTLY what you should do.  If you do the "other thing" its just because you justified and convinced yourself you shouldn't do it.  Which one do you usually pick?  :)
