This is totally awesome and made me snort. Much of this is true for me. I don't tend to like exercise that feels like exercise. ha! I do it for the results and am still trying to figure out how much exercise to rest works for my body. I find certain things help music, audiobooks, videos, being at home in comfy clothes, fun=hula hooping and dancing, and most recently all my pals over on myfitnesspal as I work towards HAES goals. I also find however that there's alot of internalized ableism mixed up in my internalized fatphobia. Somehow if I'm exercising no matter what I look like in the mirror, I feel better and different. If I'm not able to work or work out for health reasons my esteem plummets. "...Although there are some suggested ways to increase your ventilatory threshold and maximum capacity, they require regular adherence to a routine. In cases like this, researchers suggested lower impact exercise like swimming or biking.
Researchers also found several other psychological factors and cognitive tricks that can help boost your motivation to move. Listening to fast-paced music, exercising in nature or simulated green spaces, feeling competent and confident, giving yourself control or choice, and, for many, fostering social relationships."
