Motivation ... {Can I have it?}

Thursday, September 24, 2009

I have zero desire to work out... yet I know that is the only way I am going to loose this weight again. I am going to try this motivation starter from Spark ^^

Wish me luck!

I set a calorie goal every week of burning 2000 calories, but I count all kinds of things, like a walk at lunch (6 cal/min), my morning workouts (11-16 cal/min), and even just playing at the beach with the kids (6 cal/min). So that helps keep me motivated to reach and exceed that goal every week. I find I can do that by doing a few things per day, but definitely a walk at lunch to supplement my regular workouts. Let me know how you do this week!

    Well... If I allow myself to think its only 5 minutes. I just got it done. Which really makes me feel better. 5 minutes to jump start my morning.

    Try thinking of it as calorie burning instead of working out. Don't "Exercise" get active! Go shoot hoops w/ kids or hubby, park farther from the store and walk, walk somewhere instead of drive (if possible), weed your garden, do an extra lap with the vacuum, do squats while waiting for the coffee to brew, etc, etc, etc. Eventually you work your way into wanting to go all out again. Take it's no fun to jump in, then get exhausted & discouraged! Love ya!

  I completely agree. As I am sitting here at my laptop, I know I should be doing so stretches or jumping jacks before bed...some for of exercise would be better than none at do you motivate yourself when your state of mind is as it is?
