Exercise is definitely tedious when it feels like a chore. I think exercise ought to be something you love doing and look forward to. I also think having a goal other than weight loss in mind helps to motive you. My brother-in-law lost nearly 100 pounds running when he discovered he loves running.
I LOVE to ride my bike. I love the way I feel after 30 minutes of tackling hills and racing cars. It's exhilarating. If I don't get to ride in the morning, I'm disappointed. I'm planning a kayaking trip and an overnight hike this summer, so I'm feeling super motivated to get in better condition to enjoy the things I love most.
Positive reinforcement instead of negative. Find something you love that keeps your heart rate up! The pounds will melt off and your health will improve.
