How to motivate yourself to exercise. 1. Do it with a friend. Statistics tell us that people who exercise with a friend are more successful at exercising consistently. You can keep each other accountable. Knowing that someone is waiting for you to exercise with them can be great motivation to show up and get it done! 2. Do exercising which you enjoy. For example, you find running boring. You can replace it with any other cardio activity: roller blading, playing badminton, tennis, bicycling burn a lot of calories, and you feel more like you are having fun, than like you are punishing yourself for that extra doughnut. 3. Choose music you like, dynamic and vigourous, to make it more pleasant. 4. Check regularly with your clothes, see how they become bulkier, whoop from joy, photograph the progress and create a photo gallery on your computer. 5. Set fitness goals, independent on weight loss. For example, say to yourself "Next time, I will run quicker, and it will take me only ten minutes to do so", or such. You will feel like a real athlete, preparing for a big day. Keep a journal of your athletic achievements. 6. Compete. Enrol into a local amateur tennis competition, for example. This way, you will have a goal to achieve, which is different from your weight loss, and you will have people to impress and you will have to be adequate, so you'll try harder. 7. Reward yourself (but not with food, you will end eating more than you burned, and will become disillusioned quickly). Invent a set of rules for yourself, for example: every time I am not feeling like exercising, but do it, I will put 1 dollar in my piggy bank, every time I achieve this or that goal - three. At the end of the month go out and buy yourself the most impractical things you were craving but denying yourself with this money. 8. Do not wait for some big moment or big day to start exercising. There are spaces in your daily schedule when you procrastinate - fill them with activities. For example, instead of sitting on the couch, saying "It does not matter, I am going to the gym the next day", get off and do a series of push ups, or skip with the skipping rope (buy it for one dollar in one dollar store), walk down the stairs at work or around the block at your lunch break. This way, you are exercising, fighting boredom, and do not have to sweat in the gym for hours afterwards. This random 7-10 minutes activities will roll at the end of the day into a full gym session! 9. Use "I will show them all" technique (sparingly). Think about the mean people who teased you, the girl who refused to go out with you, a sneering sales person in the clothes shop, imagine them all, and "show them" - run fast, kick high, and end being and feeling gorgeous!

Change your eating habits and try exercising more (: For eating habits be sure to avoid foods with a lot of fat and oil (fast food) and also try eating fewer carbs. Instead of habits of constantly eating snacks throughout the day you could have 6 mini meals throughout the day instead. Or eat breakfast, lunch, dinner and a tiny snack of around 100 calories (a great choice would be fruit) between breakfast, lunch, and lunch, dinner. Also, before each meal try having one full glass of water and you'll eat less ^__^ And for working out since you always get distracted try working out with friends such as going for a jog or a bike ride. Or evening walks after dinner help a bit too! Try to do something you enjoy such as sports? Or since summer is coming up maybe you could go swimming! I think you should try and set one day of the week every week as your running day and you run a mile. And as time goes on and you start getting into the habit of running on that certain day add another running day and another. And you can try doing situps or jump-ropes or just any other exercise Good luck :D

It's not "THIS" important. You've been listing to bogus information passed on from supplement advertising. You don't need pre or post workout supplements or any kind of supplements. Those ideas were created by supplement makers to sell more supplements and, thanks to a very ignorant buying public, they have become a sort of perpetual rumor or myth. I see the supplement freaks daily in this forum exchanging information which will do no one any good whatsoever. I've been building muscle and losing weight and here's what I eat (age 60) --> http://www.myfitnesspal.com/food/diary/c... If you're hungry after you workout, eat...If not, don't. If you eat a proper diet you'll have plenty of nutrition in your blood and GI track to keep you going for 24 hours with out food. And, if you do eat after a workout, the protein isn't going to go streaking to your starving muscles. It's going to sit in your stomach and then in your small bowel where the nutrient will be assimilated over several hours and passed to the blood where it will then by used to feed all catabolized tissues from blood to organs to skin to hair to smooth muscle to teeth to striated muscle and on and on and not just to your poor, tired vanity muscles.
