30 Bananas a Day!

I don't have motivation to exercise...

I'm feeling terrible, like I was the worst person in this world... I tried I really tried but I don't have the motivation to exercise or practice something like that... I need
exercise or practice something but I feel lazy only with thinking...

When I started this path I was 215 pounds and now I'm 132, my body isn't
ugly but is flaccid, I still embarrassed to saying that, but I know that
I need to be confident and accept my reality to change it... But I
really don't like exercise...

I love this path, I love how I feel when I eat fruits and spinach, I'm loving my life more than ever,
but I don't know what I can do!!!

I often read this forum, but I don't like to post because I think my English is bad, now I'm
feeling so depressed and unhappy that I'm writing and crying, I see my
body and it's improving but I know that exercise is fundamental to be
healthy, I lost a lot of pounds, before the 80/10/10 I used to be
depressed, thinking about die, eating a lot of crap and feeling like
crap... Now I'm fine but I can do better, but I don't know how.

All time I'm smiling, and helping people, inspiring and saying good words,
but some weeks ago I started to feel badly and although in day I'm
happy, at night I think about what I need and don't have and exercise
always appears like number one...

If you have any tips it'll be great.

It's simple...... get a DOG! They live to walk and run and if you have a heart you will walk him (or her) 3 times a day (like I do). I'm very lazy for exercise, don't get me wrong - I love it - I just don't have the will to start, once I do I’m ok. And my dog is the perfect solution. He knows exactly when it's time for the walk and if I'm not ready, he comes and kindly reminds me.

If you decide to get a dog keep in mind that pups of larger breeds my not walk the stairs till they are one year old (so their hips don't damage while they're young) and you have to carry them every time you run into them. Now you have walking, running and weight training :)) covered :))

If you know Cesar Millan, you know you can do so much more activity with a dog, then just that. You can do roller blading, biking and swimming, dog training like agility or obedience.

Good luck to you

Thanks for all your tips and messeges, I'm better today I go out with a friend and made a walk, later I went cycling for 5 minutes... I eat between 2000 and 2500 calories for day, usually two meals per day, sometimes three when is my day off. I know that I can be fit and healthy, but sometimes I feel bad about what I can't do.

I'll try all things that all of you suggested.
Thank you so much, and have a perfect day.

And walk to the local hospital and visit the amputees and tell them you dont have any motivation to walk and were wondering if they would like your legs.

Elizabeth has some good tips there too.

Get out and walk 5 times a week. Get some quality shoes with lots of cushioning and go wear out their soles putting peta.org flyers in peoples letterboxes. Or write up websites on scrap pieces of paper and put them in instead. Go out and pick up empty coke bottles and put them in the recycling. Pick up plastic bags on the beach. Whatever..motivation to exercise is UNLIMITED if we carb up and use our imagination.

What on earth are you waiting for? the fairy god mother to come down and tap you on the shoulder and give you some motivation? You got motivation inside of you so just let it out and live the life you dreamed of living!

Rah Sandara,
I totally understand cause Im from the same place.
Now, there are many ways to exercise a different way and I will share what helped for me:

first I realized I had a negative stream of thought, connected to physical work out, that was directly linked to my relation to my body. I used to think I was weak, tired, ugly and that physically challenging work was painful to me. I went through a time when I had access to a spinning-bike and I decided that I was going to fullfill my time on that bike, be it 10 minutes in the beginning and all the time I kept saying/thinking positive thoughts, like IM STRONG! IM BEAUTIFUL! I LIKE THIS! I FEEL GOOD! And I was trying to LOVE breating. After just a week I was able to up my spinning time and so on.
Yoga, was also an opener to me. I decided that I was going to MEET MYSELF WHERE I WAS and not where I wish I was.
That led me to walk my own way in the yoga room. I learned the asanas in my own tempo but thoroughly. The way I do Yoga is Slow but oh, girl, IT WORKS!
Slow Yoga is not for everyone, a lot of people like it a lot faster than I do, but thats besides the point. Yoga is an exercise for unity of body and soul. I highly recommend to concentrate on Yourself during Yoga. .. ... And oooh yeah...the Love. I practice circulating words of Love and support to myself and my inner child.

Dancing. I dance at home, or with friends or take a danceclass! The city i live in have a very much living subculture of different types of dances. Salsa is huge, I think they go dancing every night!

Then came ROLLER DERBY...
This is a sport that has not only "cheated" me into more exercise than any other physical activity ever, it has also given me will and determination to become stronger.
When I skate (as long as I allow myself babysteps when Im a beginner at whatever) I just dont feel the same resistance as I would from running for example.

I hope this will inspire You somehow. Much Love, Support and Encouragement.

I am doing exercises from bodyrock.tv every second day. best thing is - they only take you 12 minutes and you do not need any tools or machines or fancy outfit or whatever. in case you wanna start doing them then let me know, so we can agree on a workout for the next day and compare our results - maybe this is motivating?

what works for me is to have many options. i have a rebounder, and some running shoes (vibrams). plus a yoga book, a houla hoop, and a playlist with dancy music. I am trying to not fall into routines, but vary my activities. Otherwise i would be unmotivated as well.

And reallt, the crucial thing is - enough calories. As soon as i consume under 3000 (and i am a small person) i do not want to work out the next day or the day after. Plus being hydrated helps a lot too. And sleeping enough!

Drop me a comment on my page in case you want a workout partner!

Rah, I'm curious as to how many calories/day you are eating. Maybe you need to eat more calories to have more energy to exercise and feel cheerier.
Comment by Alicia on December 2, 2010 at 1:03pm
When I don't eat enough, I lose motivation for exercising. So make sure you're getting maximum calories and drinking plenty of water.

I don't know if it will help you, but this article always motivates me to exercise!

I was having no motivation to exercise just last week so I took some time off. If your body is telling you it's too tired to exercise then just listen to it and rest. If you just don't really feel like exercising, then just do some light walking. Hope I helped. 8)
