I really like suggestions in this article. They are all good ideas and a good selection for everyone to find an enjoyable activity. Earlier this year I signed up for a half marathon to encourage myself to run more and to challenge myself more. I didn't expect to get sucked in into the training routine SO much! I am really enjoying it and finding out interesting things about myself. While training for a half in August, I've already completed a 10K and a 15K with a friend - we had so much fun. Now she is training for a half marathon, too.

I'm just not motivated at all to do anything which looks like exercise. I'm not lazy, I just don't like the whole movement for exercise sake thing.

However I've just done something which has clicked into something that I like but haven't been able to do since I put on so much weight and that's wearing high heels. So when I get up and walk around the house my heals will be giving my legs a little bit of a workout. My confidence should benefit a little too.


It's a start :-))

I am trying to remember everytime I walk into my kitchen to do 10 push ups against my kitchen counter. Just started this week and I'm doing great with it. !!!

I like to try to beat my time when I am walking. I have the Endomondo ap on my phone and it is awesome!

I'm actually in my third week of the 100 push ups challenge! I started with only being able to do 3 full push ups before collapsing, and now I am totaling over 30 in my interval sets! It really works and it makes me feel so strong!

Great article! I can see myself doing every single one of these challenges, and it's just the type of motivation I need. Plus, just a change in vocabulary does me good. Training is waaaaay better than "exercising."

Here's another goal: join a martial arts class and work towards your black belt ;)

I totally do these things! I feel like I'm in competition with myself. That way if my friends are doing way better than me, I don't beat myself up as long as I beat my own personal best:)

Thanks for this article!! I'm going to try to do all of these - starting with pushups and pullups! I appreciate new ideas of ways to motivate myself and goals to set (other than a number on the scale)

To JANDESMAMA,

I decided to not let the clock dictate my life or my schedule so I got rid of it by the bed. We all have a body clock which wakes us up when we're ready, although we may not think so. I'm awake at 4:30 a.m. although I don't necessarily get up at that time. I pray, go over my to do list, wacth a little T.V and normally, by that time, I'm ready to get up and start my day! Listen to your body and it's good to start on a weekend or on days you don't have to work. Let us know how you're doing!
