Something to have when you exercise...

Everyday I get up in the morning to go walk and jog. I'm on a strict diet, low carb and taking some dietary supplements like ginseng, niacin and vitamin b12 to help me get the energy I need in the morning and plenty of water. Now I bought one of these 2GB pen MP3 Players to use when I go out to due my daily routine. I love listening to music such as hip hop, r&b or some little techno to get me going. If I'm going to drink an energy drink I don't use red bull or any of that so called stuff. I buy what is called XS Energy Drink or 6 hour Fusion X Energy bottles that gets me alert to get my day pumpin' and wanting to work out. So far so good. I can even do this method when I'm using the treadmill in the backyard. Do you do something that keeps you motivated into exercising?

I visualize myself in my perfect body and that helps me stay motivated. I just love the rush you get from doing exercise and the natural "high" you get after one. I get tons of self confidence from it too.

You are absolutely correct Alex. I love getting a natural high and rush when I do these type of exercises.

My motivation is my yard and my dogs. I have to admit I am a slacker at exercise, wish I oculd be more into it, but I have a huge yard and I push mow it and it not only keeps me healthy weight wise, but it helps me work out frustration....My dogs keep me motivated by following me around and I always have music playing....usually dance stuff or even the oldies if I am not into the other music. I love techno music to dance to so if and when I ever do get a routine in the winter working out that would be the kind...it does pump you up. i drink a lot of tea and it gives me the energy I need without all the caffeiene of coffee (which I am addicted to in the mornings LOL)

Caffeine is pretty temporary try some paxan ginseng gives a good boost of energy if one wants to exercise for a while.

I take a magazine and flip to the hottest chick in there and run on the tredmill and stare at her! I'm not a lesbian, but it makes me get closer to my goal of having a fit body if I look at someone elses!
