Discover your “why”. You want to exercise? When you have a reason behind everything you do, you’ll be more motivated to do it even when you’re tired. The “why” has to be powerful. For example you may say I want to exercise not just to lose weight but so you won’t develop any diseases that may have effected a family member or friend. Or you want to exercise because you’re border line diabetic and if you don’t start exercising your health will decline. When you have a reason it will propel you every day
When you're exhausted a little stretching, walking in the fresh morning air can actually make you feel better. The body work makes your brain working too. If you haven't sleep much, you'll be tired anyway, but some exercise can wake you up and feel a little better 🙂
I try to do something small, just by getting the clothes on and getting started, you feel that you can do more than you think. Follow the tips to have everything ready in the morning, and don’t have too high expectations on it – just let it be easy and you’ll be able to do something!
- Any recommendations for easy and short exercises in the morning?
- How do you get out of bed when you’re so tired?
- Do you do the same exercise routine every day or do you mix it up?
- How quickly am I supposed to move from the minimum exercise to something more difficult? Is it okay if I’m still not inspired/motivated to step up my game after a month?
- Are you hydrated?
- What do you do when you just don’t feel like working out/exercising?
- What is your cue? What is your reward?
- What’s the appropriate amount of time to work out after eating?
- Is it better to do light exercise for 90 minutes, or heavy exercise for 30 minutes? The goal is mostly weight loss.
- What do you do when something prevents you from doing your usual exercise method/routine? I have asthma so I can’t run outside. I usually play Step Mania because it gets my heart rate going. But sometimes my tech doesn’t work. And I don’t really have the space to do Zumba or other aerobics. I’ve tried going to the gym, but it takes so much extra time to get ready and leave the house and etc. Difference between spending exactly 30 minutes vs 90 minutes with commuting and getting situated and etc. at the gym. I don’t want exercise to be something I dread doing. Does anyone have something fun they do at home for exercise?
