Motivation Needed - Suggestions Welcome
What motivates you to exercise and eat healthy? To just get up and run? Besides the obvious benefits, how do you muster the strength after a long day at work, caring for your kids and all of the other aspects of life that make it difficult to find time to focus on you?
A group of us at work are going to start using the livestrong.com method to track dietary and fitness endeavors, but without an actual person saying, "Get off your butt!", I'm worried that I won't keep up with recording my meals, my exercise, etc.
So, dear friends, if a regular fitness routine is part of your life, how do you fit it in? What activities do you do? Do you prefer early morning or evenings? (Sorry, I won't ask about late morning/midday, because that's just not my reality.) And, have you ever used (for a fee) an online fitness consultant, such as Beth from Shut Up and Run?
And, hey, if anyone is willing to try a "virtual" fitness motivation effort, I'd love to hear from you guys. Perhaps we could chat via email each day to discuss what we've done, what we need to do and urge each other to get moving and eat healthier. Let me know if you're up for that. Too bad so many of us are spread across the globe - I think a walking club among several of us would be such fun! Seriously, can you imagine the laughs we would have? :)
It's Thursday, friends...I'm scratching and crawling my way to Friday. It's been one of those weeks. Sigh.
