Do you struggle with...

making exercise a priority? I do... I have been unable (... unwilling) to commit to an exercise regimen - even something simple like walking. Has anyone had this problem and overcame it? What did you do?

  • I think most people struggle with it. I try to walk, garden, or do something around the house everyday so that even if I'm not exercising (via walking) then I'm at least moving around.

  • Had the problem- overcame it by getting up a couple hours earlier and exercising first thing in the morning.

  • Honestly- the best thing for me has been to been to have a great walking partner. She is awesome and totally motivating and it takes the work out of exercise. She shows up at my house at 5:45 every morning. Really, that's all it takes!

  • I wish I could find someone like that!!! I soooo need someone to help me be motivated. I know it would work, too.
