Fakin’ It!

Ok, the truth is that I’m not really feeling very motivated. Feeling a little motivated but not much. My right eye doesn’t appear to be working properly and it’s giving me kind of a queasy headache and I’m tired because my wife forced me to stay up watching Archer. I think she also forced me to have half a glass of wine too much. Damn her! /end whiny rant

So, how am I going to handle this no motivation having bad attitude? I’m gonna fake it. Yep, I’m going to pretend that I’m the most motivated person around. That should carry me through until I finish waking all the way up and find an eye patch.

Here are some things that I will focus on to get the motivation I need:

  • My Nike Fuel Band that will be replaced in a couple of days. It died at the end of January and I kept forgetting to – or blew off – contacting Nike to get it replaced. I called Saturday.
  • My upper body’s soreness. I played Wii Sports for a nice chunk of time yesterday and I really put a lot of effort into tennis, baseball, and boxing.
  • Reading and listening to a few health and wellness related items to keep me focused throughout the day.

That should do the job, I think.

    How do you like the Fuel Band? I hadn’t really thought about it until i saw that you had one. Seems pricey… is it worth it?

    I like it a lot. I wore it very nearly every day for about 9 months. The battery died in January and I finally got around to ordering a replacement but they sent me the wrong size. I’m waiting for the corrected one now. TJ has one, too, and she also wears hers every day.

    I think the biggest thing that it does for me is to keep me focused on hitting my “fuel points” goal daily. There have been many times when I’ve been close to goal and gotten out of bed to do some exercises until I made it. The pedometer was also a big draw for me since I like to keep track of my steps and the standard ones that clip onto clothes fall off too easily and I lose them or they quit working quickly.

    When I was an iPhone user, it was even better because you can sync to your phone but they’re not going to be putting out an android app – just saw that last week – so my syncing has to be done online. Or with my iPhone turned iPad Touch.

    If you’re considering something like this, also look at the Fit Bit. It’s got android apps, I think, and many health/fitness sites sync with it.

Comment if you want. You know, no pressure.
