Everyone is motivated differently. For some, the promise of a prize or reward will get them into gear. For others, it might be a fear of punishment.
For me, I hate not doing what I say I'm going to do, so I need public accountability.
That's why I'm optimistic about the Get Off Our Butts (GOOB) challenge.
Yesterday was the first day. Usually I walk my dog just enough to get things taken care of, if you know what I mean. But yesterday we walked an additional 10 mins or so in order to work on my goal of 60 mins of exercise. After that, the day took off and it seemed like it was almost 5 pm and getting dark and I had only done 20 mins, but I knew I'd made a promise, so I rode my stationery bike for 20 min two different times to make up the promised exercise.
Sometimes it's just a matter of remembering.
And not wanting to admit that I didn't do it.
How did the rest of you do?
