I was just wondering if anyone had any unique insight or strategy as to how to get motivated to do something that you don't want to do. I mean, procrastination is really a killer for some people. How do you overcome it? Life is full of things you don't want to do, but must. And even more difficult, things you don't have to do, but really, really should. I used to be in peak cardio condition a couple of years ago. I would do at least 45 minutes of cardio on a stair climber or elliptical every single day, I'm talking seven days a week and not even taking holidays off. But that was just a baseline for what I did. In addition to that and lifting weights, I rarely missed a kickboxing lesson, which was super intense cardio activity for an hour. Many times I'd spar for 30 minutes to an hour even after the lesson. For one thing, I was in college and had more than enough time on my hands to do all this stuff, and for another, I was a few years younger than I am now. For years I've done minimal cardio while pumping up and adding mass. The other day I got on my standard cardio machine and figured I'd crank out a session like old times. I was gasping, wheezing and slowing down unacceptably - and it only took ten minutes for me to realize the crushing reality, that me a couple of years ago could kick me today's ass. Holding down a job and paying bills sucks a lot of life out of me, but I still think I could recover at least some of that. So, does anyone have any particular motivation-based advice?
