39 y/o – Getting fat – cannot do anything without hurting all the next day, feel like crap daily etc etc… (that will be my new dating profile description) now watching an insane Muay Thai flick…. (fyi now I feel much fatter and even more out of shape…) can you say time for a change… I have done so many things in my life that suck, always motivate myself past them or through them, but getting back into shape never is on that list… I used to be in great shape.. now its the last thing that matters on a daily basis… time for that to change… why is getting back into shape never really a priority?

    because the only ones we let down are ourselves.   With everything else, there is someone else to be accountable to.. but with this, it's only ourselves..

    +Elizabeth Hahn sorry – this is totally a selfy…

    +Sandra Parlow so your saying in the end we need to think about ourselves first.. before others…

    For some things, yes.  And we need to realize that we are important too – the most important thing.  Our bodies are a machine, and for us to be any good to anyone else, we have to look after that machine.  We have to love ourselves enough to WANT to do it for us.  Make a plan and stick to it.  Just like we brush our teeth every day.  Just like we take a shower.  We go for a walk, or we do some yoga, or we lift some weights or get on a bike.  

    I have NEVER been thin, and after fighting it all my life I know I never will be.  But I can feel healthy.  And I can feel comfortable in my skin… if I work at it.  It's hard to get that resolve up and going.  But after a few weeks, you actually begin to feel bad if you don't do it.  Because you are letting yourself down.  

    YOU never go away… and at times in your life YOU are all you have.  So why treat YOU as second best?

    If your body is like his, give advice otherwise let it go.

    Set yourself a physical goal that will push you and would be worthwhile completing. Spartan race or some such. I've got one in August that I need to get myself into better shape for

    I hear the motivation.. I know I could do it if I wanted too.. But why or what makes us truly want to do something…. I think many like me are stuck with so much to do daily that we let other things go… How do others here make the choice as to what is important each day… Is it work.. Kids… Taking a shower… Sleeping… What ranks where on people's lists of what needs to get done first and what gets set aside?

    Well, each day is different. If I have work and hockey on the same day, likely my work out is going to get pushed aside. 

    The last few weeks I've been nursing an injury so I haven't been working out regularly and I feel like crap about it – but I feel that so long as I do it more days than I don't, at least I'm still in the game, you know?

    A problem I found for myself is that I would often set a goal for myself and it was too rigid and too hard to keep.  So I always gave up.

    Then I decided to make it more manageable.  Start off with what you KNOW YOU CAN HANDLE.  Say you can't walk 40 minutes every day.  Start off with 20 minutes 3 days a week.  Try that for 2 weeks and see how it goes.  Plan ahead which days you'll do it.  The trick is to get started, and then adjust as you go along.  

    Then after you get that down you can decide to take a longer route.  Walk faster for some of it, etc.  then work so that your time is longer when you can.  

    You can do floor exercises and lift light weights while you are watching tv, etc.  try to just work bits into your day to start out!  Even just taking the stairs is a good place to start.  

    I'm not an expert by any means.. I'm just telling you what works for me.  If I put myself on a regimen that I'm going to get up and run for 30 minutes before work every day I KNOW I won't be able to stick to that…  It has to work for me.

    Trying to get it in a routine helps. I have a hard time doing 'indoor' excercise. I love hikes, basketball, and if I can round up people whiffleball or volleyball. It's harder to get people to commit to that though.

    The trick is to just do it!  Don't work gradually up to it, or do it "next week"- start today, and don't stop!

    You can do it!

    Don't forget: Nutrition is at least 90% of the equation. You can work out 7 days a week however, if you eat crap that is a MAJOR contributing factor to your looking & felling like shit!

    +Aaron Wood I have said this myself.. and then I stop… usually because of work or other things that just wear me out before the end of the day..

    +Thomas Townsend I agree…. I do not eat horribly – but I also do not eat great…

    Water (plain ole H2O) is another of those often overlooked and not discussed items. You need water to both build muscle (that controls your metabolism) and rid your body of toxins (from metabolizing fat) as a preffered fuel source when you lean out. 80 to 128 oz a day will work wonders.

    80+ a day…. Lord in will float away
