just 5 minutes

When I don't feel like working out, I tell myself I'll do just 5 min. Then if I still don't feel like working out I can stop, but by the end of the first 5 min. I feel so energized that I can't wait to do more.

T-SHIRT MOTIVATION

I bought a cool t-shirt, and my nephew said it looked like it could fit the 16 month old. I put it on and said it would look good when I lost some weight. He said I already looked like I had washboard abs! I now wear it when I need to remember how far I've come.

Walking

Having a partner to walk with helps me exercise on a daily basis. My wife and I take time to walk and we each have our own home exercise routine as well.

Sign up for Races

Signing up for races in upcoming weeks and months keeps me training for a goal. It prevents me from doubting my abilities when the race comes up. I signed up for it, I better run it: Ready or Not.

New month resolutions

Instead of having new year resolutions, I have new month resolutions. At the start of each new month, I recommit to doing all of the healthy things that I know I should do, but stop doing. For example, walking, writing in my journal, eating better, etc.
