I've started jogging with my dog (going on my third or fourth week). Hard as hell to motivate myself out the door. Had to buy an mp3 player as incentive. I can only jog about half or so (3/4ths today, but that was new) of the 2 miles we go. Dog likes it, though it sucks when she suddenly stops to dart at a squirrel or to take a poo.
It's really difficult to find motivation to stay in shape. Those that have a routine or naturally find motivation to do so count yourself lucky. It's just not easy to do.
I've got a fairly large gut, and I've done some sit-ups everyday using an ab roller, but my love handles are the bad part, and I'm not sure the sit ups do much there. Any advice for a naturally lazy guy?
