Self motivation and the motivation of online friends
No matter how much pain I am in, I know that the only thing that is going to help me feel better is to get up and move. As I am moaning and groaning as I move across the room, I make that special effort to do my stretches and warm up for that work out I know is going to make me feel much better inside and outside.
So My motivation is get up and move ( A body in motion stays in motion)
