How do you motivate you?Posted: March 20, 2011
“Perseverance, sticking with it, not quitting. If you have to choose one word that will give you success with your physical fitness, this is it. It takes time to create something good. If you’ve been sedentary for a while, don’t expect a one month bash at the gym to get you into shape.”
Wow, not much has changed. I wrote those words for the Xercise Files newspaper column in the Quesnel Cariboo Observer thirteen years ago! As I look back, I can’t think of a more formidable barrier than motivation. How to get going and how to keep going with a fitness program. It seems to be the Achilles heel that people continually deal with. I often said if I could just find that switch, I’d package it up and sell it to the highest bidder. I’d be filthy rich.
