Fotoless Friday – How do you get motivated?

25 Feb

I think I’m stuck.

Where, you may ask?  Well, about 10 lbs above where I want to be.  I just can’t seem to get rid of this last ten pounds.

And I am fully aware that the best solution is to eat better and exercise more.  But how do you motivate yourself?  Or even find the time?

And I have to admit, it’s partially because I’m a wuss and don’t like going for long walks when it’s -35 with the windchill.  Celsius or Fahrenheit, it’s bleeping cold!  And that wind, it finds every nook and cranny in your snowsuit, your eyelashes freezing together and you can barely feel your cheeks.

I just can’t motivate myself to go out in that.

And the indoor exercising is, well, just boring LOL  There are just other things I find to ‘conveniently’ fill my time.

And so I’m stuck.

    I had really good luck with the WiiFit program because it was short and I felt like I “had” to do it because it had a schedule. Working out in the winter is the hardest for me too, especially since layers conceal the bulge so well!

    Mojo to you! I second Stacey’s comment. I just got the EA Active 2 for Wii and am enjoying it. Not long enough/hard enough for me as I’m using their 21 day challenge program but I do find I get a good workout when the weather outside sucks. I use the Wii Fit as well with it so I don’t get bored. Good luck!

    Thanks guys. I really should get back onto the Wii. Guess I just need to kick my butt and do it!

      I was trying to find a cheap Dance Dance Revolution for the Wii, I thought that might be more fun than the Wii Active and then I’d be more likely to do it. But no luck so far 😦
