Procrastination vs. Action
I know that I need to get off my butt more during the day. I've said it a zillion times before but do I do it? No. Do I have the time to do it? Yes. Actually, I should be doing it now but you know, Deathtrap is on and I'm entranced by Christopher Reeves' performance. *sigh* I think there's a part of me that is like "hey, remember that time you worked out twice a day for two weeks and not only did you not lose weight but ended up a pound higher than you started? That's what will happen if you are up and around more."
Well no, not really, it's not like I'm talking about doing HIIT workouts every hour, I'm talking about getting off my butt for 5-10 minutes an hour and either doing a walking workout, PT exercises, stretches, etc. In my mind it's so clear and cut yet I can't will myself to get up and do it. How is it I have no problem willing myself downstairs to workout 6 days a week for an hour but I can't seem to get motivated to get off my butt once an hour? I know I have better success getting my water in for the day if I chug a bunch in the morning but it's so easy to just get caught up in work or surfing the web and then before I know it it's 2pm and I need to even start my water bottle. This has been my pattern for years. Why is this so hard to break? It's rhetorical...only I can figure that out for myself.
I NEED to get this under control because honestly, I know it's a big hurdle to why the scale is stuck for us. We both sit on our butts all day and all night and are active for an hour a day. Working from home is not the awesomeness that people assume it is. You lose pretty much all motivation to break your blood supply with the couch/office chair and your social skills retard to the level of 1st grader or you are so happy to see another human when you go out, you talk to them non stop like Stryker talking to the grandma on the plane.

Do you have problems going from knowing you should do something to actually doing it?
