Working Out Motivation

I've been trying to stay motivated to keep on running this winter. I bought a treadmill so that’s nice and I can run inside. But even that can be hard when all I want to do is curl up in bed and watch TV. But yesterday’s workout was, dare I say it? Fun! I enjoyed running! Sometimes I hate it, and for the first ten minutes or so I did, but I completely enjoyed it from then on.

I find that I do my best when I’m distracted by some sort of actiony show or movie in front of me. That’s not motivation, but if I’m entertained, I can go for a lot longer. But even if I'm entertained, I may not always enjoy it. That's why I was pleasantly surprised by my run yesterday.

Another motivator is getting healthy and in shape. I'm hoping to become a faster runner so that's a pretty big motivator for me.

Do you have any tips for staying motivated to work out?
