You Won’t Stay Motivated to Exercise
Secret to Still Exercising Anyways
Up at 4:30 AM and out the door at 4:45 AM to the gym, train, shower at the gym then to my office or on the road to see customers. That was 20 years ago. I had lost over 60 lbs and was scared to death that I would regain it, this was my motivation.
The alarm clock was strategically placed as far away from the bed as possible. Why? So I had no choice but to get out of bed and turn it off.
Stretch Armstrong could not hit snooze from the bed.
20 years have passed. The fear of gaining the weigh back has subsided. The alarm clock is next to the bed. Sometimes I do hit snooze.
You won’t stay motivated to exercise. None of us will. I don’t have that fear of gaining all that weight back and with it the burning motivation.
The Secret to still exercising when the motivation is gone, just get moving.
Most mornings my joints crack and pop like a bowl of Rice Krispies. The last thing my 40 plus year old body wants to do is get up and exercise at zero dark thirty. I have to get up and get moving, and so do you.
It is like passing GO in Monopoly.
You won’t stay motivated to exercise. Accept that and get up and get moving.
