Default Lazy on the weekend?

I can't seem to get myself going this weekend. I want to exercise, but I have no motivation. Does anyone else have this issue on the weekend? How do you push yourself to move?

I mostly do housework and SIT on weekends.

My only motivator is, my kids have a karate class at the Y, I am there anyway, so do it. I have not had good luck recently with exercising at home -- household is too busy. I know there is a ton of ppl with unused gym memberships, but because my going there is "piggybacked" onto my kids' activities, it works for me.

Hope you can find a similar resolution -- something you can do that is added on to your weekly routine, in some way.

Thanks for the reply, Foxl. Exercising at home really is challenging. I just need the motivation to go outside .

We stay so busy during the week at our house that it is easy to be lazy on the weekend. At least, that is how I justify it.
I can only hope that the little bit of cleaning & laundry I do has some beneficial effects!

The weekend is the only time we slow down, and I still usually end up working for most of it, just at a slower pace. Also, since it's the end of summer vacation from school, I am trying to back off from work a bit on the weekend and enjoy as much time with my son as I can before he starts 2nd. grade. If it's too hard to push on the weekend, maybe you could up your routine during the week a bit, to compensate?

Little bit? I end up doing 10 loads, each weekend! I try to get the kids to help with sorting and folding ... but.

I just did a 1.4 mile walk with my husband, he insisted. Who WANTS to walk in 100+ temps, not me! I also have two small boys so they keep me moving between chasing them and laundry and housework.

Now that it is just DH and me at home there aren't 10 loads in a week (thank goodness). He claims not to know anything about laundry, but he does do dishes.

I'm the same etherea...just me and hubby now so only about 4-5 loads of laundry to do weekly.

I was so lazy this weekend I cleaned the bathrooms and kitchen, and my bedroom and the rest I said "nope" to. I didn't even do the laundry

My husband is going with my daughters and their boyfriends to Nights Under Fire this coming weekend (Krazy Cars, Racing Cars, etc) so I'll be home all alone! I plan on locking myself in the house and doing whatever I want. I'll probably do a bit of closet cleaning and basement cleaning. Perfect time for it! I need to stay away from the Malls and stores because I really don't need to do any more damage to my credit cards!

Mine will do laundry, but walks right past the dishwasher to place his dirty dishes in the sink!
