Finding the Motivation to MOVE!

Tuesday, November 29, 2016

Seems I've fallen into the same old pattern I was hoping that this site would get me out of. I imagine and visualize myself doing more walking or biking or home equipment exercising BUT I don't actually make the time to do it. I get caught up in something else and then the time flies by. Or by the end of the day I'm too tired after eating dinner and end up just watching TV or mostly surfing or playing my favorite computer game. I know it's not good for me and that I should PUSH myself but something is stopping me and I can't figure out what.

I wish I could find a motivated friend to partner up with to help keep me on track but seems no one I know is interested or close enough. UHG!

I tell myself to JUST DO IT ... Oh but the floor needs sweeping! The dishes need to be washed! Is that dust under the coffee table?!

    before I hurt myself I would exercise right when i got home from work , I told the family they all knew. I would go in my workout room shut the door and before I knew it i was done and the rest of the stuff was done to. First find a activity you love to do. Then pick a time and pencil it in like an other commitment. That half hour or hour is for you . if your tired just start and see how far you can go. Just do it, you deserve it.

    I read about this lady somewhere on this site "Leslie Sansone" she does a lot of step workouts that aren't too long or difficult. Maybe try it out first thing in the morning before you start your routine. Put a step counter on and see how many steps you clock up. Hope this helps.
    As for myself I don't really like exercise but I'm using a Wii to exercise first thing in the morning with a game called "Step it Up", "Walk it Out" in America. It's really quite addictive. I only started this morning and can see me keeping this up. I clocked over 3,000 steps this morning and it really didn't feel like it. Time flies when you are doing it. It feels like a game. Forgot, you already knew that, it's the menopause can't remember a damn thing.

    Get a steps tracker. It helps to keep up with your steps while out and about. And it still helps on losing weight. I have health problems that won't let me exercise a lot so my doctor said get a step tracker. It helps me realize I'm still active

    If I were you I would make myself do a 20 minute video (I do Jillian Michaels) in the morning. That way you are done and got in something. And it's only 20 minutes so no excuses for time.
