Use the Internet for Workout Motivation? I Think It Can Be Done

Workout Motivation I’ve got a wedding on September 1. Starting June 1 (at which point I hope to have concluded the majority of my major accessory projects that demand my time), I’m going to begin a daily exercise routine that will hopefully change my health for the better. I’ll be running every day, and doing other various exercises with the resources I have available here. I’m not going to join a gym, or buy any free-weights, but I am going to run, jump rope, do push-ups, crunches, whatever I can think will work at the time. I’m going to need help staying on top of this, because I’ve come to accept my lack of discipline for this stuff…. and that’s where you come in.. Kinda. It’s not so much you, but rather, this blog. You see, I LOVE writing and sharing things with people. That’s something I can commit to. So I’m going to make updates on my progress here, including statistics from my runs and stuff from RunKeeper. My hope is that, by sharing on this blog, it becomes something I’m doing, with another activity attached to it. I need to write it down for the public, so they can see my progress, track me. I’ll do it for something else other than just for the sake of doing it. Here’s where the potential is cool for this… How many of you would like to do this with me? Kinda like an online workout group? Add in some other people, and we can motivate each other. Keep each other on task. Just 30 minutes to an hour every day. This really shouldn’t be that hard to do, and it may provide me with the workout motivation and momentum I need to keep it going. Anyways… That’s what I’m up to. My goal is to drop to 160lbs by my wedding day, all while adding a bit if muscle mass at the same time. I don’t really have a whole lot to start with, so there’s at least some potential for growth without a ton of intense workouts or anything It’s a step in the right direction for a better me. I’ve always hated running, but I’m hoping that by sharing everything on the Internet for people to see, it’ll keep me motivated, If nothing else, to keep doing something that I can share. When I slack behind, people can message me or comment and give me the whole “what’s up, lazy?” kinda of treatment. Some people have personal trainers at a gym. Rather than spend that money, I’ll just have everyone who reads this be the motivators. Who knows… Maybe I’ll actually start to like it. Of course, I’m not relying on anybody responding to keep me going.Workout motivation is something I’ll need to develop a bit of self discipline for. Since I’ve tried many-a-time to start this process alone already though, I figure trying something new will give me different results. Wish me luck or give me advice on how to improve this plan in the comments field below. Also… whenever I post an update, feel free to comment then as well. Or really, just any time ever. Comments are never a bad thing. Private messages are all I seem to get anymore. 🙁 EDIT: The workouts have begun. You can see them by using the “Workouts” menu item at the top of the page, or by clicking here. [charliead]]]>
