How to Motivate Yourself to Exercise

How to Motivate Yourself to Exercise

Are you a professional athlete addicted to drugs – er – I mean running? A ballerina? Or perhaps one of those shady people who turn up in television infomercials claiming the “weight loss” benefits of some miracle tea/ bamboo shoot/ capsule/ belt/ Kareena Kapoor poster? No? Oh well, not surprising. Oddly enough, these people never seem to need help of the internet for running their lives. This post is not for them anyway. It’s for the ordinary folk. Yes, you there, lazing around like an alligator. And you too, crouching in a corner. Put down those leftover New Year sweets and alcohol. And stop licking your chocolate cake stained fingers.

So, you know the story of Sheikh Chilli? My mum says it’s based on me just because I said that I wanted to invent a time machine and go back in the 1960’s to get married to Joy Mukherjee (SO BLOODY HOT!). Anyway, that’s irrelevant. We’re all Sheikh Chillis here. We want to look hotter than Megan Fox in her Transformers look, we want drop dead gorgeous skin, we want to be healthy, we want to be as strong and energetic as the Gummy Bears on their Gummy Juice, AND we also want the brainy nerds (aka clever scientists) to come up with a pill with all those benefits so that we can pop it in and go back to our sedentary lifestyles. Don’t come raging at me like a Bigg Boss inmate. You know that it’s all true, and you even have the guts to grumble that you don’t have the TIME to exercise.

It’s okay, I understand. What with demanding jobs with Hari Sadu like bosses, little brats, family obligations (aka exotic holidays), Facebook and Farmville, Twitter updates (“I had a heart-attack-on-plate dish, yay!”), challenging intellectual pastimes (watching that Akshara show and improving self-manicure skills) and getting just enough sleep to keep from doing a faceplant into your fancy cup of coffee during 9 am meetings, WHEN are you supposed to do this ridiculous thing called exercise?
If Barack Obama can find time to stay fit, why can’t you? No, watching Rakhi Sawant belt out her “insaaf” is NOT more important than your increasing girth or that dull skin. It’s not the question of time here and everyone knows it. It’s just a problem called lack of motivation. Here’s a list of cheat codes that you may use to tackle your inner sluggard –

1. Do It In Chunks

Don’t go all over-enthusiastic and declare to the world your aim of running for 2 hours every day. Start with a short workout of 15 to 20 minutes. It could be anything – a brisk walk, a few Yoga poses, core-building Pilates, or even fast dancing on your favourite songs. You can build it up little by little and once your body realises that it is going to be whipped up into shape after years of neglect, it will stop groaning and declaring war against you too. You could always increase the intensity later once you are used to your workouts.

2. Enjoy It

Aerobics reminds you of school PT classes with fat teachers in white shorts? Try some fast dance moves instead. Find Yoga too boring with excessive jalebi-like bending? Go for Pilates which gives similar leanness minus the whole feel-your-inner-self New Age kind of schpeel. Don’t find any of that interesting? Okay, just do a little jogging in your nearby park or go swimming. The main reason why most people do not feel motivated enough to exercise is not because they are busy taking out processions in the street for the Lokpal Bill. It’s because they just don’t ENJOY their exercise. It should not feel like a Karmic retribution for all those chocolates you stole from your siblings when you were a “badhta baccha” (in terms of girth, not height). It should feel cool, it should feel fun, it should make you excited enough to go, “Huzzah! Exercise time!” and do a little jig in anticipation. Yes, it is possible. No, do not roll your eyes. That does not burn calories.

3. Pick Any, Pick Many

You know what I love about exercise? No, it is not the fact that it makes me sweat a lot and compels me to buy more perfumes. What I love is the sheer plethora of choice that I have. It’s so easy to enjoy your routine if you make it varied enough. You can just make it a very à la carte menu kind of a thing according to your time and interests. Who says you must look like a sweaty pig in front of 50 strangers in a gym if you want to stay fit? I don’t like gyms. I tried for a few weeks but this is how my thought process goes once I am there – “I’ll do a minimum of 30 minutes on treadmill today. Fast. Faster… Good grief! That’s my English professor! Must not look at her and make her feel uncomfortable about her silly gym pants. Ok, back to exercise. Hey! That girl is wearing Easy Tone shoes! Wonder if they work. Damn. Must concentrate on exercise. Oooooh! Cute guy!” and so on. In short, it’s a rather distracting place for certain people. So, I choose to workout at home and decide my exercise based on how my mood is. Kickboxing for I-will-kill-so-and-so days, Pilates for gotta-look-nice-in-that-dress occasions, Yoga for all-is-right-with-the-world moods, dance for must-spend-pent-up-energy evenings, running for lazy weekends where I need to pump it up a little etc.

4. Reward Yourself

It’s the same old carrot methodology and you’re the Bugs Bunny here. Try to stick to an exercise routine for a week. Success? Buy that new dress over which you’ve wasted half a ton of greedy drool. One more week? Eat a cake. Another one? You may or may not steal a credit card and buy a Chanel bag. Hush. I did NOT give you the idea to steal. It’s the chor in your heart which did so. Hmph. Anyhoo, the basic idea is the same that is used on greedy little kids who are learning to walk. Show them candy (or their pretty mommy) and let them come stumbling towards the source. Someday, they will grow up and run a marathon.

5. Other People

Have you watched ‘The Jane Austen Book Club’? In that, one of the characters is so inspired by reading Austen’s books that she takes a major decision of her life by asking herself, “What would Jane Austen do?”. That’s my policy too. No, I do not ask myself “What would Jane Austen do?” and then proceed to engage in verbal fights with every taciturn, rich and good looking man I meet. Instead, I look at pictures of unbelievably fit women in fashion magazines and on television, and then, on the days that my inner sluggard is telling me to “just skip the darn exercise”, I ask myself “What would the Fit Cover Model do?”. It’s not as if I want to be a model (a model for Santa’s little elves perhaps, considering my height) but it’s simply because I want those toned legs, abs or just an overall fit body and a good skin. It works every time. You just need to find a motivating factor. It could be the aspiration for a great figure or the desire to wear a hot dress without looking like a decorated earthen pitcher or maybe the wish to stop feeling so unhealthy and sluggish all the time.

6. Your Entourage

I belong to a family of pretty fit Punjabis. Anyone who stands up and screeches, “Oxymoron! Yeh saraasar jhooth hai, milord!” will get an “Order! Order!” knock from the mallet right over her judgemental little head. Except for two chubby little cousins who seem to be joined to butter chicken by their fat little hips, almost everyone is health conscious. During my exams this September, I had given up exercise for a month or so, and was too lazy to get back to it. Lucky for me, my father kept prodding me to stop munching on “silly junk food” (his words, not mine – I respect my unhealthy food) all the time and kicked me back on my Yoga mat. I have friends who go to the gym regularly or are into sports. Even my mother and kid brother go for a daily walk. That pretty much shames me into taking care of my body and moving it around a little.

Make a few friends join the same workout that you do. That’s one of the greatest motivating factors ever. If you see that there is another poor little body being rudely whipped into shape along with your own, you’ll be less likely to slack. The same philosophy is at work when people accept potholes on roads, powercuts in summer, red tape, transport strikes etc. It’s because we console ourselves saying that everyone else is suffering too. Ab kya kar sakte hain?

Also, if you are one of those people who have never exercised in life and are surrounded by fools who are bound to point and laugh at you if you start your workout now, learn a little technique. Stop announcing to these kinds of people what you are doing. Their ridicule and scepticism (“Workout and you? Hahahaha!”) will only pull you down. So, give exercise only to the mouth and chew a Centre Fresh.

7. Prioritise

Please do not go off running to do a Ganga snan. I understand that ‘prioritise’ can be a rather dirty word for people who are adept at altering to-do lists to suit their slothfulness. However, you need evil to fight evil. So, yes, prioritise your tasks. Make exercise a TOP priority in your life. Do not put it in as a forgotten footnote beneath nonsense like “Watch Ram Kapoor gulp down 6 paranthas in Bade Acche Lagte Hain” or “Google hot pictures of Ranvir Singh” or “Make a voodoo doll of Boss” or “Stare at the wall till it moves”. Even if you have only half an hour for a workout, do it anyway. Your body will thank you for it. On busy days too, you should think twice before giving your workout a miss. Just put on any silly song that you like and dance around a little. If you cannot or do not like to dance, go for a 10 minute brisk walk. If you do not want to step out of the house, walk on your roof or just go up and down the stairs about ten times. It does not have to be one boring routine. Spice it up a little. It’s your workout. Make it a little mad if you want to. Just make sure you do it.

8. Put A Cork in It

Most important of all, quit whining. Treat exercise like something that you MUST do whether you like it or not. We’ve all done things we needed to do but hated more than Shoaib Akhtar hates good English – be it going to the dentist, attending that class in college where the subject is boring and the teacher is stupid, going to that idiotic family function where everyone will either pull your cheeks or pick 9785 faults in you, consuming that horrible tasting medicine, and even getting waxed. It’s mandatory. You cannot get out of it. Sure, you may delay it a little but once your much abused body starts to take its revenge on you, you WILL have to take care of it. That will also involve exercise and much more trouble. So why not begin now? What was that Hindi proverb about starting ASAP again?

  1. I think I should schedule this article as a monthly alarm to stop the-josh-u-get-after-reading from getting all thanda :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: Nice article JW :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi:

      1. Seriously…..I get all geared up after reading such full-spirited articles but then in no time it all fizzes out in thin air :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: any saviour tip on that JW / anyone? :shame: :shame: :shame:

  2. Awesssssssome article JW..I need to buck up seriously..donno why I feel my jeans to be too tight today!! 😥 😥 😥 😥 😥 😥 😥 😥 😥 I am gonna take a Printout of this article and stuck it to the side of my mirror now!!! 😀 and :jog: :jog: :jog: :jog: :jog: :jog: :jog: :jog: :jog: :jog: :jog: :jog: :jog: :jog: :jog:

    1. Thankee, Kimi. :yahoo: :yahoo:
      Jeans have this annoying habit of getting tighter and tighter post New Year season. :headbang: :headbang:
      Good luck with your exercise routine. :dance: 😀 :woot: :woot:

  3. Impressive article well written. My mom always says that Don’t spend your money in such useless products like Slimming Tea, caps.,tablets, cream, belt etc. spend your little energy in workouts. Actually maine Kellogg’s special k khareeda tha and my mom gave me a leaders wala lecture on my choice .

    1. Hahaha! :lol2: :lol2: such lectures are such a “mom thing” to do! :tongue: I personally believe that she is right though. Instead of blowing up big bucks on such products with tall claims, it’s always better to make a little effort yourself and exercise those extra kilos off. 😀 :jiggy1:

      1. 😆 😆 these things (slimming things) tea and k kellog contain a lot of harmful cheicals that destroy liver in longterm….as usual mum is rite 🙂

  4. loved it loved it loved it..perfect time when we are all trying to stay true to our resolutions. :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo:

    the tip about starting off slow and then increasing the intensity really makes sense. For lots of us getting up is the biggest problem so starting trouble as they say once you are ready to head out for that walk, gym or yoga, that 15/20 mins can easily become 30 to 40 mins..and guys one good exercise (for those who live in flats) – take a break from your regular exercie routine and walk up and down those stairs 2 to 3 times and notice how your stamina builds up..

    Thanks JW!!

    1. Aru u know my office was on 16th floor of the building :jog: :jog: :jog: :jog: i keep climbing uptill 16th floor n ground floor some 2-3 times in a day n tis was amazing news fr entire office :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly: n my wt was thn only 47kgs…….climbing stairs is as gud as running daily

      1. Wow Jiya, thats great!! :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: Mine is at half 8th floor and I’m already breathing like a dinosaur by the time I reach my desk climbing all those stairs…guess I seriously need to build my stamina! :chewnails :chewnails :chewnails :chewnails
        Any tip that u followed when u begin? :waiting: :waiting: :waiting:

        1. TA, how about using the stairs till the fourth floor and then taking the lift? You could always increase the number of floors you climb gradually, and it would keep off that dinosaur-panting problem away too. 😀 😛

          1. Yeah JW…thanks for the idea which by default gets implemented once I’m exhausted halfway :tongue: but will keep in mind to stretch incrementally :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

    2. Thankee, Aruna! :woot: Glad you liked it. :yahoo: :yahoo:
      I totally agree about the stairs tip. :haanji: I used to live in a student residence abroad a few years ago and my room was on the 5th floor. I always gave the elevator a skip and those five flights of stairs were sometimes enough to make me “feel the burn”. 😀 😀

  5. ok of New Year goodies u had :drool: :nonono: . Now its time :preen: :yikes: to workout :spank: :duel: :jog: :jog: :jog: :dance: :jaiho: :jalwa: :jalwa: :jalwa:

      And this cold is terrible! :headbang: I had a massive lunch at 2 pm and I’ve now just ordered an XL cheese pizza. The cold is making me eat like that fat kid in ‘Bombay To Goa’. :silly: :silly: :silly:

      And 😆 @ your dad calling you Sheikh Chilli. I believe it’s a typical parent trait to call their kids by that name. :tongue:

            ohh CHD has chillierrrr than Delhi i know… :stars: :stars: :stars: my relatives live thr…i visit them in every 3-4 months

  7. Nice post JW as always!!!!!!!! This one might actually be my favourite post of urs (though its hard to pick, u r one awesome writer)
    I actually love exercising… 😐 😐 😐 😐 I’m a total fitness freak n manage to hit the gym even on my busiest days… (In fact, I get to release all that pent-up frustration on my boss by gymming extra hard 😆 😆 ) I love yoga too..
    What I have experienced is.. Even if u skip gym for 2 days, the motivation reduces drastically n u feel more inclined to skip.. :((
    But the endorphins I get at the end of my workout makes it all worth it.. I LOVE WORKING OUT :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

    1. wowww..I am inspired after reading your response. i have just started yoga but am facing like acidity problems and therefore light headedness that normal? should I continue or just stick to my walking? I do my share of walking and managed to lose 6 kgs in the past year or so which is not too shabby i think :whistle:

      sorry for all these questions..

      1. Aru, DO NOT ignore acidity!!!!!!!! Yoga is excellent. U can do it regularly along with walking… Definitely a better option than walking alone.
        But maybe u need to look at ur meal timings as well? It is very important to eat small and frequent meals. Leave a gap of no more than 3 hrs between meals (Tip: ur meal doesnt have to be large. A banana, a carrot.. these are meals too).
        When u workout, ur intake goes up slightly too.. If u r eating less n working out, that could be the reason for acidity/light headness.
        Congrats on the weight loss!!!!!!! :waytogo: :waytogo: :woot: :woot:

      2. Aru it is normal if you have just started doing Yoga. You would need to listen to your body to get stabilize with yogic patterns. I recall our yoga teacher use to advice no heavy eating or drinking at least 2 hrs before yoga. If you are not empty stomach u do get acidity. Tea with couple of biscuit is fine. In the end its all about different individual so u need to see what works for your body. Just don’t eat anything till evening and u shud be enjoying the party :nono: :nono: :pompom: :pompom:

          1. Yeah, the different positions actually tend to churn whatever u take inside….and can be an obstacle in reaching the precision of position which is what yoga is all about 🙂 🙂 🙂 Good luck and I hope u get rid of the acidity! O:) O:) O:)

      3. Congratulations on the weight loss, Aru! :yahoo: :yahoo: Great work. :yes: :woot:

        Like Ramya said, acidity could also be because of meal issues. Personally, I find it rather difficult to do any Yoga even if I’ve had coffee or tea in the past hour or two. They might trigger acidity too. Also, keep drinking a lot of water during your Yoga session.

    2. I agree with u Ramya :highfive: i really admire the way JW writes :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: so bloody damn gud …..thr r rarest of rare gud writer wid humrous way of writing…she is one of the damn inspiring….. :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi:

      1. Really! She’s dangerously witty n cocky… I find that my mood is instantly uplifted when I read her articles…
        IMBB team, maybe JW’s articles could be archived under a separate title? :worship: :worship: I really like to keep on reading her articles again n again n again :)) Have no idea how to do that ?:)

        1. Ramya just by clicking on her name JabberWocky which is a link right above the comments section u can find the list of all her articles….and enjoy reading :specs: :specs: :yahoo: :yahoo:

              1. Omigosh! :yahoo: :yahoo: TA, Jiya and Ramya – thank you for so much love, guys! :puchhi: It makes me so excited. :woot: :woot: :woot: :happydance:

                1. U r welcome sweets :puchhi: ….u had the big cheese pizza akele akele? :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: me to want it :scream: :scream:

                  1. Sorry, ab toh tummy mein chala gaya. Burp bhi aa gaya. :silly: :silly: And I’ve even done my Pilates to make sure the cheese doesn’t take up permanent residence in the form of tummy flab. :balle: :balle: :jalwa:

                2. Ohhh JW, u can thank us by writing more articles like this one… :toothygrin: :toothygrin: We are being entirely selfish.. We love laughing out loud reading ur articles n love ur sense of humour… :puchhi: :puchhi: What say, TA n Jiya? 😉

                  1. :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: Okay, agreed. I will thank you in the manner that you want. Shall spend my cold vacation spamming IMBB account with my ramblings. :silly: :silly:

    3. Thankee, Ramya! Glad you enjoyed it. :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:
      My god! I have a gym-addict friend exactly like you. 😯 :toothygrin: She works out harder on the days she’s had a crap day in college. 😆 :tongue: And I totally agree about the endorphins! The “workout high” is so amazing that you feel like never giving up on exercise. :woot: :woot: :yahoo:

  8. hey aruna, i don’t think the acidity is due to yoga.. in fact there are some asans that help cure acidity problems..
    do cut down on caffeine/spicy/fried food/citrus food/ and onions too..
    and for curing acidity ghar pe, you can try chewing a few tulsi leaves in the morning,amla is quite effective too. cucumber, papaya, watermelon, coconut water and cold milk all help a great deal.
    and keep your head a lil bit elevated while sleeping.. all these helped me a lot when i had peptic ulcers and acidity problems
    do not give up yoga or walking… both will help 🙂 🙂

    1. Thanks Swati. at home i am not that nervous. today at work i am feeling a lot of discomfort so asking for suggestions and help from you folks..have to head out for a party too later on so dont want to miss out on the fun either..trying to drink lots of water to flush out the toxins.

      1. Nice tips Swati 🙂
        but it is advised not to chew tulsi leaves and just swallow them down, as it contains some mercury and chewing the leaves cud damage ur teeth :victory2:

      2. Have you tried drinking a glass of warm lemon juice (without any sugar) the first thing in the morning? I am a major spicy food eater and used to face acidity. It has decreased quite a bit now thanks to that early morning drink and regular exercise. :yahoo:

  9. and JW your articles are a fun-tastic read every time! love the way you write 🙂
    will print and stick this article beside my bed.. i need the motivation badly..kal se will do some exercises! :jog: :jog: :jog: :jog:
    but i cant diet.. love my food too much… any advice?

    1. hey never skip your food, specially be in touch with your favorite food…that will really help you remain calm and composed….

      1. happppppy Birthday Akhila!!!!! :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :present: :present: may you buy lots of MAC this year… :yahoo: :yahoo:

    2. Thankee, Swati. :toothygrin: :thanks:
      I don’t diet either. I can sacrifice a lot of things (like watching Emraan Hashmi movies :tongue: ) but food is not one of them. :nonono: Don’t skip your meals or give up on any particular items. It’ll only cause irritation. Just make sure that you burn off whatever you eat by keeping up with your exercise routine. :duel: :happydance:

    and nupur, i am a dentist, and havent come across as chewing tulsi being bad for the teeth.. all i know is it is good for maintaining dental health and counteracting bad breath. will do a research in the library tomorrow about this…

  17. SO well written! I took the stairs coming up 6 floors today and that’s after months of telling myself I will. Perfect read to stay in that right frame of mind. Loved reading it. Great stuff :}

  18. A wonderful, funny and totally amazing article again, Jabberwocky! :jaiho:
    I needed something of this sort as a motivator, it comes at just the right time.
    I hav gained around 5 kilos in the last year and though 1 of my new year resolutions was to loose my extra kilos, I’ve learned from your article now that I need to “prioritise”. :yes:
