I want to want…Karen

Hi Brooke.
I have been successful at learning how to stop wanting flour and sugar (most of the time). I also have been successful at finding thoughts that get me to do things that I really do not want to do, like go to the gym. But the truth is that every day I have to coach myself into going to the gym. I truly do not want to do it. Today’s homework asks what I want to accomplish today and my first thought was to go to the gym, but my 2nd thought was that really I don’t want to accomplish that. I would actually prefer the need for the gym to just go away. I want to want to accomplish that, but I don’t. Learning to want to want something that I don’t doesn’t feel the same as learning to want to not want something that I do. Should the approach be different? Or is it just a matter of keep coaching yourself into doing it even though you don’t want to and eventually you will start wanting to? I ask, because I’ve been doing this for a while now, and I still dislike it.
