Default what motivates you to workout?

I am training for the air force and have had such a lack of motivation to get in top shape. I filled my truck up yesturday and was so pissed at the gas prices, that for now on I'm running the 4 miles to work and back. I am about to head to my gf's house and was going to drive till I thought about how sweet it was I still have a full tank so I am jogging the 4 miles there too. I think I found my motivation... a full tank of gas. Lol.

What's yours?

A pay check, lol. I wouldn't say my job is the most active, but I make it a workout by doing it differently then the other guys. Plus, I try and get outside as much as possible too (weather dependent, which is why I'm here right meow, lol).

My motivation comes from different places. Usually one of them keeps me in the gym 4-5 days a week.

1. I don't want to be a fatass like a lot of people I see. I also don't want to be soft like most guys I see.

2. Friends. I've lifted weights with and without friends, but usually lifting with friends pushes you to your limits. That is of course if they encourage you and are motivated themselves.

3. Music. I have to lift with music. It keeps my adrenaline up.

4. Lastly, i've been in the gym for 8 years. Most of my motivation comes from not wanting to ruin and loose the progress i've made in those 8 years. You can, and will loose it fast if you find yourself being lazy.

The power of Zen. Knowing that by exerting myself I am cultivating a physiological connection to my higher stronger more capable self. Learning how the temptation to believe that I cannot can be overcome just as surely as it occurs. And vagina.

Also, for me its also the fact Im a vegetarian, whats the point of not eating meat (which is damn tasty) for a healthy standpoint, if Im gonna be a stick and look sickly skinny?

Nothing does these days. Wish I'd find some motivation. That way I wouldn't be overweight & out of shape.

Just don't like the thought of being out of shape

I used to work really hard at hockey, not that I thought I could go pro or anything crazy like that, just because I wanted to get better and make sure I was at my best to help the team

Looking at my old wrestling videos and looking at how big I looked. Also, trying to get as big/in shape as I can. I'm already the biggest out of all my friends, so that doesn't really matter. Also, I take jack3d and like it better than NO Explode
