Lately, I have noted a number of people calling who need to be 'motivated' to exercise and ask your advice. I have listened to you for years and have two favorite pieces of advice regarding this subject.
- First: "Move more, eat less." Simple, to the point and right just like you.
- Second: (and my favorite), "Keep telling yourself, 'I don't want to do this' as you put your shirt on; 'I really don't want to do this' as your put on your shorts; 'I don't, don't want to do this' as you put on your shoes. Before you know it, you'll be out the door, moving!" I do this a lot and it works wonders.
Your podcast keeps me company on my almost daily walks. I go from 3.5 to 6 miles at a time and you make it really enjoyable. You also accompany me when I'm pulling weeds and it's amazing how much I get done without realizing that I'm working.
Thank you, Dr. Laura!
