How do you keep your weight loss routine from turning boring.

Many people, including myself, get bored with weight loss endeavors once the weight loss plateaus. How do you keep it entertaining so that long term success is achieved?

  • Find something you like to do! Exercise does NOT have to be slaving away at the gym on the elliptical. Find a 5k or adventure race to train for. Take up rock climbing, canoeing, or cycling. Join an outdoor bootcamp type fitness class. If you are a gym regular, try a new class. Spinning, zumba, belly dancing, anything!

    Mix it up and make it fun! Don't be afraid to go out on a limb and try something new and/or a bit out of your comfort zone...you might find that you actually like it!

  • I agree with pp. Find something you love to do and it won't get boring. I run and do spinning and I love to do both of them therefore I look forward to my workouts. I also think if you treat working out as something you just have to squeeze into your day like anything else you do such as eating or showering, there's no excuse. You have to eat right? You make time for that so make the time to workout.
