President's Council on Physical Fitness

Okay, I've decided to try something a little "hokey" to help me stay motivated! Remember the President's Council on Physical Fitness? I never participated in that as a kid, though at some point I remember hearing about it. Well, now they have "programs" for adults. I've decided to work on the middle-of-the-road program, Presidential Champions. I'll keep an activity log online, based on my exercise, and earn points along the way. (Of course, it depends on people being honest with their activity log.) The bronze award takes 20,000 points. I just logged this morning's 60 minute workout and earned my first 522 points. We'll see how it goes!

Hey, thanks for the comment. Since you live so close, maybe you'd be interested in meeting for a run together. :-) I'm slow and just getting back to where I can run about 20 minutes without my knee hurting so I may not be the best person to run with right now. Anyway...thanks again for the comment and welcome back to running!

To stay on top, you've got to keep re-inventing your motivation. Things like fitness articles you mention, success stories like the Rice Diet and Biggest Loser, your own progress records, smaller size clothing and the Presidential Champions program belongs in the category of another great tool. One of the best motivators is a companion with the same high standards for routine work-outs. Maybe there's a exercise buddy to link with who's on your schedule at the fitness center already or schedule with Mom when she's in town.
With another 60 minute effort to your credit, you're doing GRRREAT!
