What Makes You Stop Exercising?

I'm normally pretty good about following my exercise plans, but sometimes just one change and I'm quick to let my workout routine falter. After a long overseas trip, jet lag, and catching a cold, my normal daily trips to the gym have dwindled down to barely anything.

I've been making fitness a priority in my life, which means that I've been successful at squeezing in a gym trip before meeting friends for dinner, drinks, or a movie, but feeling tired and sick has gotten the best of me! What makes you stop exercising the most?

For me, it's usually an injury, or extreme tiredness. For example, right now, I have plantar fasciitis. Not fun.

I'll only come to a full stop if I'm seriously injured, but lately I've noticed that a lack of interest is keeping me from having good workouts. I'm getting bored!

If I have one of those nights where i just can't get to sleep, there's no chance i'm hitting the gym.

My dog injured his leg last week and he needed to stay off if it which meant I needed to keep an eye on him so I couldn't go out for my regular workouts. I didn't stop working out completely but I didn't go out for my runs and exercised from home instead of at the gym. Since I knew it was a short term obstacle to exercising I didn't worry too much about it. The week gave my body a chance to rest and now I am ready to go this week!

If I haven't done my workout by 9am the chances of me doing it later are slim to none. Busy mornings stop me.

Exercising has never been a priority for me, mostly because my family didn't do much. I'm trying to retrain myself and exercise somehow every day. I try to walk at work during my breaks, and use the stationary bike at home in the evenings and on the weekends. However, the weather gets me a lot, some times when I'm sick or tired I don't exercise like I should. Being busy can sometimes make it tough. But I'm working on all that to keep motivated.

The only thing that stops me from working out and running is an injury. I'll workout through a cold but not the flu. It's all about severity and how much energy my body needs to recover.
