Motivation to exercise

Working at WEGO Health has given me the opportunity to meet new people and really see where my health interests lie. It’s also recently given me a kick in the pants to start working out again! Shannan recently created a new Fit Group and I jumped right in. She has been motivating all of the ladies in the group (no guys yet!) to get up and get moving. Her recent post about What motivates you to exercise was incredibly insightful and I wanted to share it with you!

Last week I worked out three times – alternating walking and jogging, and it’s doing me some good already! I’ll share part of my comment here, too, since it’s general fitness stuff about me.

I have been exercising mainly to keep my body loose and limber. Dealing with chronic pain daily my doctors told me that even walking everyday would help me relieve some of the constant pain. I did it religiously over the summertime (sunshine!) but once winter hit, I slipped up and stopped. Now I’m back to three days a week (whee!) and I’ve been sleeping better and not hurting as much, so something is working.

I know, in the near future, my mindset is going to change from doing it to relieve the pain to doing it because I crave it. That’s how I’ve been before and know/hope it’ll be again.

I took your advice from the group and started out slow. I walked and did a little running last week and while I was sore, I don’t feel like I pushed myself too hard. I am going to be trying the Jillian Michael’s Shred DVD this week and know that it’s going to kick my butt, but all my friends are doing it, so I want to, now, too.

I think ya’ll should go check out Shannan’s blog Living a Whole Life and tell her why you’re exercising! I think ya’ll should ALSO join WEGO Health and jump into the Fit group to meet some amazing women who will motivate you to get moving!

My co-worker, posted a thought-provoking entry on the WEGO Health blog asking people to write about whether they were patients, consumers of health activists. What do you think? Are you consumer? Are you a patient? Are you simply a health activist?

I threw my $0.02 in there and would love it if you’d head over and check it out – and add your pennies, too!

New Year’s Resolutions, XII

101. Dance in the rain – easy to do in Oregon. So much fun and it takes some definite carefreeness to do it. Let’s hope!

102. Jump in a puddle – same as above, really.

103. Reform my DVD collection – once I move I’d like to grow my collection back up to what it used to be. Right now I own 10 DVDs. (De-Lovely, Dirty Dancing (in German & English), Finding Nemo, Moulin Rouge, Premonition, Pride & Prejudice, The Princess Bride, Thirteen Going on Thirty & Walk the Line)

104. Buy a gift for a stranger – how could would it be to GET a gift from a stranger? Why not give it and totally surprise someone?

105. Be fitted for a bra – I’m in my late 20’s and never had this done. LOL

106. Take one hot bath a week – instead of multiple. Save on water, save my skin, and electricity, too!

107. Memorize the lyrics to a song not in my regular genre – something hip hoppy perhaps. That’s one of the only genres I don’t regularly listen to!

108. Do some more health networking – spread my wings within WEGO as well as the new online communities I’ve joined.

109. Make a list of 110 resolutions for next year – I should start my list now. LOL
