You heard me!
I've been on and off my exercise routine since February. It's a very easy routine, doesn't take a lot of time, but I still can't seem to stick with it. I'm not easily self-motivated and can be very lazy, so I'm always finding some excuse not to do something healthy.
I found myself back on fitocracy today after a while of not exercising or posting. I walked/jogged for 45 minutes today and when I went to log it I started apologizing for not being around and giving excuses as to why. I started looking through my feed and found that I did that a lot.
"Sorry I've been gone, excuse, excuse, excuse."
I think I've done it here a few times too, much to my embarrassment.
Well, no more! I'm going to work harder to motivate myself into exercising and I want to know how you guys do it!
How do you motivate yourself? Who here uses a rewards/punishment system for doing a good job/sitting on their butts? What have you tried that hasn't worked? What kind of excuses have you made for yourself and how have you gotten over doing that?
Just recently the Zombies, Run! app released for the android, so to motivate myself I started playing it today. I don't know how it'll work long term, but I know I can't wait to go running tomorrow.
I hope the various missions and evolving story line will help keep me going!
