Is there a difference?, absolutely. Fatigue as I am sometimes, so tired that 5 minutes seems like 25 minutes when I close my eyes and I am not able to focus without batting my eyes seems like 40 times. Laziness is when any excuse to sit and avoid what I should be doing.
I know this is confusing, what does laziness and fatigue have to do with an exercise regimen?, EVERYTHING. Laziness you lose focus and if the habit continues you become complacent and poof there goes your regimen. My regimen of focus is workout, but this applies to any and all goals.
Fatigue, you rest and do whatever it takes to stay focus, total alignment with your goals.
I am guilty in the last month as to siting “fatigue”, of course I was one day a week, but I used it instead of “laziness”. I was lazy and lost focus. Of course I worked out, but not putting in a 10, I gave it a 3 maybe.
Guilty and I just stopped and realized I did not like what I saw in the mirror (again) and how frustrated small things made me. I am one week back on track and love it.
Are you really fatigued or is it laziness, it is not too late to make that decision and make that change, you’re gonna love it.
