Resistance

I went to see the EAP counselor yesterday to talk about exercise resistance. I learned that resistance is its own field/area/category? in psychology. It seems it goes back to Freud.

Anyway, she said that if a person is resisting, then the person is engaged.

I didn’t really get this until I applied it to a different issue. Purging. I resist purging. I often feel the urge to “get rid of it”, and there’s more to it than just thinking it. But I resist. So I am still engaged in purging, at some level.

That means that I’m engaged with exercising when I resist. Too bad you don’t get the benefits from resisting exercise, too.
