Sometimes I get a little confused. Maybe you do, too. I know I'm supposed to work out regularly every week. I know I'm supposed to have fun. I know I'm supposed to work out even sometimes when I don't feel like it. So, how am I supposed to I have fun when I don't even feel like being there?
Maybe I should just be cranky the whole time I'm at the gym. I'm sure that will help the time go by really quickly and pleasantly. I'll probably be everybody's favorite classmate, too.
Or maybe in addition to just showing up, I should also make it mandatory to truly enjoy myself. Imagine if I set a goal of "having fun." What would be my action steps toward that goal? Hmmm, maybe I'd say smile and say hello to everybody around me in class. Maybe I'd introduce myself to someone I never met before. Maybe I'd make goofy-Kenny-Kane faces through the warmup. Maybe I'd smile my whole way through the workout. Maybe I'd cheer for everybody around me. Maybe I'd invite some people to roll out with me after class and chat about our lives together.
What if your "having fun" goal were as important as your deadlift or pullup goal? Can you set PRs in fun??
