7-Day Summer Shape Up, Day 2: Choose an Activity You Love

Posted by on Apr. 24, 2012 at 10:49 AM

Could you walk forever but hate to jog? Do you love to dance? Prefer the outdoors over the gym?

Your mission for today is: Choose a form of exercise that you love!

Not sure what to choose, consider something you've always wanted to try: yoga, running, tennis -- the options are endless!

You'll be much more likely to stick with a workout you enjoy than one you're forcing yourself to get through. Once you've chosen an activity (or activities), get out there and do it! Or mark a start date in the near future on your calendar! Then make a plan to do said activity (or activities) at least 3 times a week. Write it down on the calendar, starting now and for the coming summer months, and plan to cross a day out each time you exercise. Trust us, writing it down -- and crossing it out! -- can be very motivating!

What workouts do you love? Tell us in the replies!

 I love Tai Chi! I am on the go from 7am to 11pm today, but I will definitely be all about the Tai Chi tomorrow after work!

I miss running so much.  But I enjoy weight training, so I'm glad I've been able to do that.  Hopefully the rain will come and go quickly so I can test out my cycling legs again!

I Have always wanted to run.  This is a good way for me to motivate myself to start running.  In October there is a 5k marathon that I'd like to run.
