I agree with what Sky was trying to say about workout clothes...

Go down to the store and get a matching top and bottom set and a new pair of semi-expensive or expensive sneakers. It may be totally 'girley' to say this, but if I like what I see when I look in the mirror to start, then I will keep going at it. The reason I say by somewhat expensive shoes, is because if you don't use them, you'll be wasting money and that in itself can be motivating....

I go to zumba 3x week (one is a toning class) and LOVe it. I get there early and grab some weights from the gym, and go into our aerobics studio and do some curls and stretches with 15lbs weights (few reps each) just for bulking. I'm no she-ra muscle type, but I can throw my fair share of hay bales or 50lbs bags of feed around as a result and I feel better about myself just having that extra strength to do chores.

Sometimes I wear a shirt with a big "S" supergirl emblem on the front when I'm feeling really slow or sluggish and somebody will always say something about it at zumba, and so I find that the social interaction that comes with working out with others feeds me energy, too.

So that's my motivators - cute clothes, a little muscle to help with farm chores and social interaction. Plus I've lost 12lbs so far.

I bought myself some new shoes after the first two weeks of my workout regime and they are super flashy and best suited for the kind of workout I'm doing. That helps too. Truly, I was using an old, old pair that really needed to be retired to the trash. I am nearing the end of week 6 of 9 and am finding the second set of dvds much harder and longer than the first. I think I felt the same way when I first started so I hope I will find the workouts easier as I continue to get stronger, more balanced and flexible. I have really started to notice a change in myself. Keep motivated everyone!

I seem to have been totally unmotivated lately. I seem to get most of my exercise sitting at the computer reading about all of you doing exercise. I don't mean to be so lazy.............

I workout EVERY SINGLE DAY. And I still dread it haha. But what helps me is to mix it up. Yould dread going if you do the same work out every single time

Theres lots of things thatll give you a work out. If your looking for cardio go swim one day, go on a hike. Take out your bike and ride.

If your looking for upper body maybe (dont laugh but I do this back home) go throw the hay bales around and just rearrange them haha.

I ALWAYS listen to music when I work out. On my own that is. I can't listen to it when im doing PT.

If your in the gym find some random person and watch them out of the corner of your eye and do your own little "competition" against them. Go faster and longer on the treadmill, do more curls/pushups/lunges etc. than them.


Music, music, music. Get some upbeat music like AC/DC Three days grace, drowning pool, disturbed etc. something with a good tempo to help keep your pace and to push you.
