Regardless of the exercise program/routine, motivation is a major factor in sticking with that program. Motivation comes in several different flavors. Some are motivated by pictures of themselves, some are motivated by their children (or the thought of having children), some are motivated by others. In my case, I am motivated by all of the above including the risk of Diabetes, heart attacks, sleep apnea, gout and all other health issues that stem from being obese. I recently became a father and I want to be the best dad I can be and that includes being healthy for my wife and child. My family is a major motivating factor; I want to be around for as long as I can!
I love quotes and motivational speeches. Motivational videos and quotes inspire me to be the best I can be each day. I try and watch videos and read quotes as often as possible, especially when I need a kick in the pants and an extra bit of motivation.
