Postpartum Weight Loss- Can’t Get Motivated To Workout?

To Sara of Fit by Sara: “I know I SHOULD exercise but I really don’t enjoy it. I find treadmills boring, and I’m not coordinated enough to take an aerobic class. Any ideas to help me get motivated to workout?”
From Sara of Fit by Sara: “Many people start exercise knowing they should, and quickly stop exercising because they don’t enjoy it. The key to staying motivated is finding exercise that you actually enjoy. For example, do you like the outdoors? If so, start going for walks or hikes. Better yet, invite a friend and the time will quickly pass! Do you enjoy dancing? If so try a dance class! Also, stop using the excuse that you’re not coordinated. It can take a little time to get in the swing of any exercise, but once you find a good instructor, class will soon be enjoyable. Try something new…I have a good feeling there’s some form of exercise you’ll love just waiting for you!” - Sara Holliday
