5 Awesome Ways To Get Motivated To Work Out - The Jerd

5 Awesome Workout Motivation Tips!

Show of hands, who has ever wanted to skip a workout?

You… you too… you over there…

Well guess what? Me too!

We have all been there.

It’s not just you. It happens to us all, but when life tries to drain you of all your superpowers you can’t let it!

If we only worked out when we felt like it, or when we weren’t tired or stressed or too busy, we probably wouldn’t exercise very much at all.

There’s a reason we set our alarms for 5:30 in the morning and decline that tempting chocolate muffin! We’ve got goals. So for the days when the snooze button is just calling your name, or your goals just aren’t convincing enough, here are 5 way to get motivated and keep your eyes on the prize!

We Are Back Baby - The Jerd

We’re Back, Baby!

I owe you all an apology.

Not updating for a month is unacceptable.

So, to all of you readers (especially those of you supporting the site on Patreon) out there, I am sorry!

With that being said, I am happy to finally unveil the new version of the site to you all.

While you might not notice a lot of differences, the new platform (designed by the amazing folks at Ariad Partners) gives me a lot more freedom in how I can deliver content, and I should hopefully streamline the process as well.

Which will give me more time to do awesome things and share them with you!

The downtime has allowed me to have some epic adventures with my friends and family, brainstorm a lot of new content I can’t wait unleash on you all, and work on a few super-secret projects I can’t reveal quite yet. Which I am super stoked about…

But enough about me, what have you been up to in the past few weeks?

Let me know in the comments below!

PS: If you want help becoming a real-life superhero, then make sure to get your copy of “The Heroes’ Transformation Guide and support the site. Don’t wait!

PPS: Also, be sure to get your free e-book, “The 7 Fitness Obstacles Newbies Face” by subscribing to our mailing list… (no spam, I promise!)

San Diego Comic Con Is About More Than Comics - The Jerd

San Diego Comic Con: More Than Just Comics

It should come as no surprise to any regular readers that San Diego Comic-Con (aka – SDCC, Nerd Prom, Nerdvana, The Biggest Geek Orgy of the Year, etc…) is a massive inspiration.

Both for this site, and to me personally.

Well the 2015 convention has come to a close, and once again my Cup ‘o Inspiration overfloweth!

Every year seems to have a theme to me.

And as I sit here, typing this at 30,000 feet on my way home, I can’t help but think that this year was all about Community.

Confession – I didn’t do much in the way of preparation for this year.

Of course I looked over the schedule and selected a few “must attend” panels, and filmed a PSA YouTube video, but other than that I had promised myself to not be stressed, to not rush around, and to just let things happen “organically” (I apologize, I work in corporate America and sometimes the buzzwords just come out. I kinda hate myself right now.)

Rather, this was going to be the year of just enjoying SDCC as a vacation.

And enjoy it I did!

Mostly because it consisted of me hanging out with friends from all over the world, meeting tons of fascinating new people, and having amazing once in a lifetime nerd experiences.

And while all of that is awesome, here is what made it the year of Community!
