Not Motivated (again)

I don't feel like walking this evening. In fact, I don't really feel like doing much of anything. I feel very ill from the medication and can't really do much else except lie down. There isn't anything on TV. Watching travel shows of places I know I'll never see, foods I'll never taste and home improvement shows showing uncluttered spaces that will never be can be somewhat depressing. Usually walking helps but I don't think it'll help today. I've still don't know what motivates people to exercise. It isn't one of those joyfull activities that make you want to do it all the time. Usually, while running all I can think about is stopping.

Later - I did end up walking on the treadmill but never really felt better all evening.

Sunday evening - I jogged a bit on the treadmill this evening but only went 4 miles. It is really cold outside and that may be having an effect on me. I've been feeling chilled with sore muscles. I did walk to church this morning in spite of the -28F temperature. At least I don't feel miserable like I did yesterday. I did watch the Super Bowl game this afternoon and it was a pretty good game. It didn't matter to me who won but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Unfortunately, I wasn't walking on the treadmill while watching the game. Phoenix looked like a zoo. Right now, it is -45F and it feels cold. I'm not one that normally complains about the weather, but this cold spell really seems to be lasting a long time. In reality, it has only been a couple of weeks but it seems to be much longer.
