Unique Motivational Techniques

It's the end of the second week of January, and some of you might need a bit of a kick to keep your New Year's resolutions moving in the right direction.  Thankfully, the fine folks at woot have provided us with a shirt you can wear (and perhaps a technique you could even try yourself, if so motivated) that will get you moving in no time:

Run, Oscar Mayer, Run!

woot works through the power of the masses and only the most popular designs continue to be offered, so if being a "bacon marathoner" is something you must have, click through and purchase their motivation shirt. (Lisa Johnson Fitness has no connection with woot, nor do we get a cut of any sales; I just like the designs). Speaking of which, woot offers other motivational workout clothes as well. Below are just a couple of offerings that I'm thinking of personally buying for my next trip to the gym. And this last gallery is a handful of designs that were submitted to the woot staff for consideration of being produced as shirts. These "honorable mention" options finished out of the running, so to speak, but are also very cute and motivational in their own unique ways, so perhaps they'd make a good screen saver for your computer. Finally, the ultimate motivation comes from within. Only you can get yourself off the couch and moving. And if it takes breakfast meat on a headband to do it, more power to  you.
