#8] Obsessing about exercise + the number of miles I’m running — Ask yourself: “What’s my *why* — Why do I run? Why do I exercise? From Sarah:
Do you exercise because you feel good? Because it’s a stress reliever? Because you have fun doing it? Chances are, when you ask yourself *why* you exercise — you will connect with a deeper reason that will allow you to see the *big picture* of your exercise/running routine + understand that it’s not about the number of miles you run — it’s about something else. If you notice that your *why* is not coming from a positive place, it might be a good idea to seek out a therapist.
#9] Weighing myself frequently — Throw the scale out.
#10] Procrastination — So many of you said this! We will be making an entire blog post on procrastination… stay tuned ; )
