I started jogging some years ago and these were some of the reasons why I began.
- To burn fat and lose weight
- To inspire others to get fit and healthy
- To eliminate "I can't" from your dictionary
- To build physical and mental toughness
- To discover your own personal best
- To promote overall health and fitness
- To boost confidence and self-esteem
- To decrease stress and to feel good
The exercise motivation tip below is from Spark People.com and I can vouch for the fact that just getting your running shoes on even if you don't feel like doing any exercise, is a great way to get yourself motivated to get out of the door or to start some sort of exercise.
