I have a music work out playlist. It plays all the songs, from my pop music phase, along with Broadway musicals. Songs, that I can sing along with while I am working out. That way, when I can't do the exercise on the tape I can dance to the music to keep moving.
Since I started in January, my greatest motivation for me while running has been the great tunes on my iPod! I have bought the xtreme cardio cd's and also a few others from nike for planning for your first 10k. I find that this music really pumps me up and keeps me going strong!!
I am no longer able to work out in the mornings like I like to so as soon as I walk in the door in the afternoon, I change into my workout clothes and head right back out the door. Do not pass go and collect 200 dollars. Just get outside as fast as you can.
It's hard to excercise when u do not have the motivation. But if you just push yourself and make it a priority it becomes a habit. Then all you can do is think about how can I fit a workout in. If I'm having a busy day and I can't get a full hour of excercise in I'll fit in just 20 mins.
I KEEP SWITCHING THINGS UP TO KEEP TH EBODY GUESSING! AND ALSO YOU DON'T GET BORD WITH EXERCISE.FIRST THING IN THE MORNING IS THE BEST SETS THE MOOD FOR THE DAY AND THEN THEY ARE DONE! AND A DAY OF REST IN THERE CHOOSE THE DAY!
I made a goal to walk to my local shops and to the school & pre-school instead of driving the car. As I have a baby too I have found it great exercise pushing the pram, especially up hills. My little girl (4 y.o.) likes to hang on to the safety strap & I usually end up dragging her up hills too LOL.
