Desire but not Motivation?

Challenge yourself a little every day! Today, use a machine for 10 minutes. Just 10 minutes! Gradually increase the time spent using the machines until you’ve worked up to a 60 min workout. I think these cross fit and crazy workout regimes are intimidating and hard to stick with. It’s better to get into a good routine and then slowly challenge yourself.

Built it a habit. Work out ibefore you go to work. I know the later I workout in the day, it’s a lot less likely to happen.

maybe try new things. Swim, rollerblade, tennis. Look at short workouts like the 12 Minute Athlete

Follow regular people starting their workout journey on instagram to get inspired. 

above all, workout because you love your body and want to treat t well, not because you hate it

I agree with the previous poster that it’s not really motivation as much as discipline. No one truly wants to get up at 5am to go to the gym, or always pick the healthier option instead of the one that sounds better. Sometimes you just have to force yourself to make the choices that are good for you in the long run. 

If you wait around on this amazing burning desire to start making you love running you’ll never start.

arriaza415 :  well weight loss is about diet. Youd have to work out a CRAZY amount to undo an indulgent diet, if even possible. So start there.

And maybe look into something outside of your workplace? Try a fun class like Zumba, or barre.
