You know the feeling – the couch looks magically extra-cozy and your DVR beckons. Working out is the polar opposite of what you feel like doing.
But at least you’re in good company. Victoria’s Secret Angels Adriana Lima and Erin Heatherton, both of whom are paid to keep their bodies looking killer, are right there with you.
“I do have those days when I’m not in the mood for working out – there are many actually,” Lima, 31, tells omg! at an event in New York for Victoria’s Secret Sport.
“I know that feeling,” Heatherton commiserates. “Sometimes I never actually make it to the gym but I’ll be wearing my workout clothes that are really comfortable.”
Thankfully, both beauties had some words of wisdom on how to curb those procrastinating tendencies.
“You don’t have to get the full 45-minute or one-hour workout,” Lima, whose second child, Sienna, was born in September, suggests. “You can just have like 5-10 minutes. It’s better than zero, you know? You can do a little class, or jumping rope or even walking! Do a little squats. It’s better to get moving than doing nothing.”
“When I work out, I never push myself too hard so I’ll want to do it again the next day,” Heatherton, a former girlfriend of Leonardo DiCaprio, admits. “Find a way to kind of trick yourself into making it enjoyable.”
Despite her comfy clothes, sometimes just getting dressed is the trick for Heatherton, 23.
“I think half of being successful and really pushing yourself to get motivated is putting your shoes on, putting your clothes on,” she says. “Get your workout outfit on and most of the time you’re going to do something, whether it’s a little run or something active.“
Speaking of which, Victoria’s Secret wants to know how you plan to “own it” in 2013. They’re giving away a $1,000 VSX shopping spree on Facebook.com/VSX to one lucky person who shares their fitness commitment for the new year.
