Even if you’re a regular at the gym (or a regular wherever you happen to do your sweating) there are just some days when you’re totally not feeling it. There are days when lacing up the sneaks is pretty much the very last thing you want to do.
It happens to us all, of course.
But what about if that little devilish voice tempting you to be a bit lazy is whispering in your ear every single day – what then?
Apparently Britney Spears is dealing with this very thing.
Brit was once a fitness fiend who was envied for her taut abs.
Then, well, she got a bit out of shape. Not that she can be blamed – she did go through a few tumultuous, troubled years. And she never looked terrible bad, really. Perhaps not as fit as she had been, but hardly in such poor shape that she deserved the harsh criticism that befell her. (my humble opinion here)
Anyways . . . she did make a comeback both professionally and body-wise. (Hopefully, her personal life is much improved also)
Britney began sweating it out once more and shaped herself back up.
The problem is that her motivational well has apparently run a bit dry.
She tells Female First:
"I used to be a workout freak. I used to love going to the gym but as you get older and have more responsibilities, you lose that kind of discipline. Even now I have a much harder time getting mentally psyched to train.”
So how might Britney get her groove back?
