  • Read this article before but this is one of the few I really like on SP. It's real. I love the idea of beginning with 10 minutes a week if that's what I can tolerate ... and building from there on my good days. It doesn't make me feel like a slug ... like so many other REVVV it up articles do. And given my givens (lots of age and other achie breakies) I always have at least a Plan B - which is sometimes as simple as walking the length of my house over and over. I have trouble lifting the laundry so instead of lifting a basket that hurts my back I empty the basket a hand held load at a time - making 3-5 trips still carrying some weight. This is a super slow process for me but it's kept weight steady and it's not depressing even when I am not losing. - 1/20/2017 9:18:38 AM

    "In the long run you’ll do better if you acknowledge that the choice is yours to make. You can choose either option, without making excuses or inventing a theory like “lack of motivation” to justify it."

    This is what I need to keep in mind! Sometimes I just don't wanna - and then I feel so guilty about it. - 1/12/2017 10:03:48 AM
  • I really liked this article because it speaks the truth.

    The part about motivation is really true because I live that all the time. I might not feel like going to the gym or going for a walk sometimes, but ALWAYS, when I've finished my workout, I feel so much better than before I worked out. I've never left the gym thinking: Oh, I wish I hadn't done that today! Haha.
    My issue here is finding a Plan B when things unexpectedly happen to prevent me from getting daily exercise.

    Great article. Thanks for the inspiration! - 1/6/2017 12:39:46 PM
  • Good article. Thanks - 10/3/2016 5:28:34 AM
  • I really like the new spin on lack of motivation. So much better to acknowledge that one is motivated and simply makes a decision to exercise or not. Was sitting at a bonfire last evening, 4000 steps shy of my committed daily step goal. I could have just sat there enjoying the embers but I decided to get up every hour and walk around the block (about 1000 steps each time). Felt good to maintain my September streak. I am motivated! - 9/11/2016 10:16:48 AM
  • Nice, helpful article. I really loved the point of view about Motivation. That was pretty eye-opening.
    Building up a little at a time works well, too. And having a back up plan is just plain smart; we should all do it. - 8/24/2016 9:24:31 PM
  • Dean Anderson, you always write the best articles. Always very realistic about the challenges and hard work involved, but encouraging at the same time. Always practical advice to follow. I really appreciate your perspective shared in your articles!! - 8/18/2016 5:45:47 PM
  • I am not motivated. At all. - 8/2/2016 1:44:44 AM
  • I always think I'm finding a new article and it always seems to be that I'm pulling an old one. 2007?!? - 7/31/2016 10:09:49 PM

    Very clever ! thank you for the article. - 7/25/2016 2:25:44 AM
  • Great article with real and helpful actions to take. I like that it was problem solving rather than judging. I struggle with Consistency and think this will help. Thank you! - 1/14/2016 10:25:25 AM
  • Sometimes I feel stuck and so I don't do anything. The idea that this just means that I want two different and opposing things - not that I am lazy, or unmotivated, or don't know what to do - really hit home for me. - 1/13/2016 6:41:14 PM

    This article came at the right time. I'm doing this with my daughter, who lives in another state. We keep each other motivated. She keeps me going. - 1/13/2016 11:19:23 AM
