Or maybe you do make a schedule, and stick to it for a while but then either fall off the bandwagon or get bored and find better things to do?
One of the most important things to do to start or keep at it is to find ways to make exercise fun.
Growing up, and also as an adult, I find most people talking about sports like baseball, soccer, running, etc…
And I’m just really not into those things. Never have been.
I love video games!
I only eventually got into fitness with the invention of Dance Dance Revolution
And you know what, at the time I almost felt bad like I was wasting my money on “exercise games” instead of fun games or gym memberships or something that I figured would be more anecdotally useful.
EXCEPT I didn’t know it at the time, but sinking money into activates that I enjoyed WAS the best thing I could be doing with my money!
I wouldn’t have used a gym membership, I wouldn’t have used equipment, but yes I absolutely used the crap out of those games!
The key to staying fit and keeping at it is making exercise fun and enjoyable and something you look forward to doing!
I even felt bad later on when I wanted more games like that. Like when Wii-Fit Plus came out, I struggled with my desires to buy it – because I already had the original, I figured what more good would the new one do??
Except that I was getting bored of the old one, and getting the new one would inspire me to exercise more again.
Which is the point!
To keep at it.
It doesn’t matter if you sink it bit more money into it every now and then. Your health is worth it in the long run!
So figure out what’s fun for you and do that!
Then when it changes, or when you get bored, change it up! Find something new!
And keep at it.
It’s important 🙂
