RE: Atheists who work out
It's a bit... oblique... but I think what they're saying is that initially it can feel bad but if you keep at it it becomes better? Or something like... you can feel like you'll never be able to do X random thing (finish half marathon or whatever) but if you overcome the self-doubt you can?

Fucken random ad, gotta say. Stupid is the word for it. There are positives to exercise which I can't think of right now 'cos I feel like poo 'cos I ran this morning. PS I still gotta type out that thingy I promised you a million years ago. I do actually have a photo of the relevant pages of the book I found it in now...

I didn't feel motivated by it at all anyway. My motivation in exercising is that it does make me feel good and that it will get better as I go. All I get from this ad is "exercising is hard, hard, hard".

Don't worry about it! Take your time! I've kinda given up walking again. Why is it so hard to stay motivated? Bah Tongue

RE: Atheists who work out
In all honesty, I workout mostly from the vain perspective of liking the results. Also, as others have posted, it does make me feel better (increased energy, etc). My rule of thumb is, if working out begins to feel too enjoyable, it's time to set loftier goals. Everyone's body chemistry is different, so find the exercises that work best for you.

Same here. Seeing results keeps me going. I look in the mirror and I'm like "Well well well, what do you know? This exercising stuff actually works!" Lol Big Grin

I take yoga now and again, I love it, and should take more classes. Do you like it?
Actually I do like it.

I have never been very flexible and I would like to fix that to reduce my chances of getting injured again. Also, the yoga seems to hit some muscles that I never workout effectively with free weights.
