Motivation to be Motivated…why can’t I stick to my good intentions? My goals were intentionally not lofty.  I work with a trainer twice a week on strengthening and conditioning and I fit cardio in where I can on other days.  Seems achievable, right?   I like the idea of having a workout routine, but with a hectic schedule, it is the first thing that drops off of my calendar when a meeting/home repair service/doctor appointment pops up, which is regularly in my world.  So, I’m trying to do the best I can, and that’s just it, DO THE BEST YOU CAN.  You’ll surprise yourself.  Here are a couple of things I do to stay focused on a physical activity routine.

While the path to physical fitness is straightforward (i.e., dieting and exercise), this path starts to meander wildly when people attempt to actually follow it--lengthening the time it takes to reach the finish line, if ever. The question, of course, becomes "why?" Why are people hard-pressed to achieve fitness when every voice out there is saying that it's good? Not only that, but it is equally ubiquitous to hear that not being fit is bad. So why?
