My mantra as I go for those cardio walks is now:

My friend Kim inspires me to exercise. She died in November 2010 of cancer. Cancer which most likely could have been prevented/fought with good nutrition and exercise. Both of which she refused to do/get. I love Kim, but I don't want to be Kim.

Nature - such an excellent answer! Nature has always gotten me out and walking, in all sorts of weather. For several years, I walked on every lunch hour, just to keep up with what birds were around, and what plants were blooming/flourishing (even in the snow)!

I find nature very motivating too. Wish I lived in an area that got more nice days! :)

Strangely, I really like the feeling of the burn in my muscles, and the sweat! Sounds crazy, but hey, if the body is sacred to a Pagan, then all fluids are too, aren't they? It's like reconnecting with the Goddess within me.

ASILLA, mp are like iPods. Sort of like Walkmans with out the cds. My dog is my best motivator to exercise. Especially when I got her she was about 35 pounds overweight. In the almost 2 years I have had her she has lost about 20 pounds. She actually is doing better in reaching her goal than I am. lol

Good challenges inspire me to exercise. I am thinking of starting a virtual walk across the US to encourage me to put on some miles between walking and biking. I was on a Tolkien walk about three years ago and that was great!

Anyone else up for a virtual walk?

One day, one step at a time!

I agree with ALEXTHEHUNN, it makes me feel better when I can walk. I'll never be able to run (injuries) but the only linit on how far I can walk is the one I put on myself...and why would I do that? Someday I hope to live where I can have a dog to walk with like you JEWITCH, that would be grand.
I don't have an mp(?) just somgs in my head/heart. I like tha picture idea. Thankx for posting.

I love to go walking, so it's inspiring in itself. Also, as I am feeling a little better, it builds a upward spiral of motivation.

Once one dismisses the rest of all possible worlds,

One finds that this is the best of all possible worlds.

So I am relatively new here, and I love it!

I got to thinking, we could inspire each other more if we all knew what helped each other to get out there and get some exercise in!

Every day I take pictures on my walk. It is AMAZING to see how everything changes from day to day. I post the pics to my blog to try and get others to look at the beauty around them on their walks too. It is so much better when you make it an artistic adventure, instead of trudging through exercise.

I also post a "Song That Rocked My Walk?" It is that song that pops up on your mp3 player when you are walking that puts more wiggle in your walk or the one you have to listen to 5 times because it is ROCKIN' YOUR WALK!

What do you do?
