9/26/12- Paula's Exercise/Eating Journal - Saturday

Hi. I talk to people about my interest and enthusiasm for workout.  Some people look at me like I'm from another planet.  They tell me they really don't like to workout, or can't find the time to fit it into their schedule or just can't consistently stay with a program.  Statistically, nearly 50% of those who begin a routine, typically, quit within 6 months.  I believe that they quit because they didn't begin working out because they wanted to, but rather,  they begin because someone else wanted them to begin, or a doctor told them they needed to, or for the approval of someone else.

 Edward Deci, PhD., a professor of psychology at University of Rochester says that " those who begin a workout routine to feel better is more likely to succeed than someone doing it to look better."  Deci says that "in exercise research, intrinsically motivated exercisers were more likely than those who were nagged by friends or family to continue working out for 6 months or more."

In tomorrow's blog, we'll talk about 3 ideas that Deci speaks of to change the attitudes to help someone achieve success in workout and body changes.
