Leslie Jones Emotional Instagram Post

7 Heartwarming Responses to Leslie Jones' Honest Gym Selfie

We've all been there, walking into the gym with your workout clothes on and an upbeat playlist blaring through your headphones, all accompanied by a sinking feeling of demotivation. While many of us keep those down-moments off our social feeds, Leslie Jones has taken to her Instagram to share her relatable feelings of discouragement.

The popular comedian, who's just joined NBC as a correspondent for the Winter Olympics captioned a recent gym selfie with a vulnerable message stating, "Ok back to cardio. But confession I feel like I'm doing it for nothing. I know [it's] not I'm healthy and look good but I really feel like "what's it all for" if the people you want to notice don't. I just feel like I might die alone. Sorry that's pretty heavy today!!"

While it's perfectly normal to feel down and maybe even power through the feeling while working out to get the feel-good, endorphin-boost at the end, Leslie's vulnerable post touched a nerve for many of her fans who took to social media to remind her of why she's doing it. The flood of supportive messages thrown Leslie's way are a great reminder that no time spent putting yourself and your health first, is time wasted.
If you're feeling demotivated in your efforts to get fit and healthy, read on for 7 messages of support that will speak to your soul.
