do I work out everyday?-- no, not necessarily but I do something physically active every day. I do my surge training at least 4x a week and walk with some folks at work as weather permits.
What motivates me: My nieces and nephews do. If I don't take care of myself, I can't be around for them. So I look at Lyle's face and find that doing another 5 squats or crunches isn't impossible.
Definitely start with a small goal and work up from there.
