The aha moment on Motivation
Friday, December 19, 2008
I had one of those aha moments today when reading and I realized why it is so hard for me to get motivated. So many times I say I cannot get motivated to excercise, yet what I read is that I have not given my self the inspiration to want to change. If I want to change badly enough it will be the motivating factor to drive me to exercise.
I also need to change how I go about exercise. I need to start working out for even just 10 minutes everyday and set aside the time everyday. In order to make this a habit I would need to work at this anywhere from 21 to 40 days until it becomes second nature to me. Then I can start increasing the length and intesity.
If I truly want to lose weight bad enough I will "make it happen". I have made journaling my food a habit and actually feel quilty when I don't, I need to make exercising just as important.
