The other issue is... I get bored with workouts easily, usually because I'm in it by myself, and I need variety. This time, my friend and I are in it together.
This weekend I bought a The Biggest Loser Cardio Max DVD. I've watched Bob and Jillian kick other peoples butts into shape season after season, now I get to experience it. Not only am I motivated, but I'm very excited.
A few days ago, while riding and listening to Beyonce's new CD, I thought, I could dance to lose weight. I had been considering Zumba. Actually, what's to consider? It's a great workout, fun, and dancing. I love fun and dancing! The best part is, I wouldn't feel like I'm working out at all!
There's one issue when it comes to Zumba... the price! I weighed my options, and decided my health is worth the investment. After doing the math, I found I spend about $90 a month on Coke, that's $3 a day, times 30 days. In one month's time, I could save enough to buy the Zumba DVD.
I'm not kidding myself into believing I'm going to quit cold turkey, to buy a Zumba DVD. I said I'm motivated, not crazy! What I am planning to do is... instead of buying two Cokes (one on my way to work, and another on my way home), I'l just buy one in the evening, and have it with my dinner. The money I would have spent on the morning Coke, will go into my "Me Jar," for the DVD.
What sacrifices have you made for your health, and how do you stay motivated?
