A lot of people who make it typically start with motivation but end with discipline. Right now your motivation seems to be ending dadbod mode and what that means is that after a few months either you'll be out of dadbod mode and your motivation will fade and therefor your drive to improve yourself will fade as well or you will simply stop entirely because you never built the discipline for it.
Now there are three approaches you can take:
1. Do the aforementioned just enough to scrape by, it is the most common and it is easily the most likely you'll just stop caring or burn out because you're encouraged by brief bouts of motivation.
2. Get some long term drive. In the cartoon Avatar the Last Airbender, a character named Zuko had said this to the protagonist, Aang: >It was why my firebending was so weak before, because for so many years hunting you was my drive it was my purpose so when I joined you I lost sight of my inner fire. But now I have a new drive: I have to help you defeat my father and restore balance to the world.
In other words you need some sort of concrete and long term goal to set yourself towards. You can be as specific as you want but the point is you clarify exactly what it is you want so not like: >I want to end dadbod mode But more like: >I want to decrease my BF % to 12-15% while increasing my overall weight by X lbs due to lean muscle
Something concrete and real, it starts taking motivation away and builds discipline. You don't want to run because you're still dadbod you need to run because you have to run if you want to reach your goals.
3. Simply get some discipline. Personally I don't enjoy running or really working out in general. But I do it anyway, not because I have a goal or purpose to it but because there really isn't much other option. I can't just be a fat as fatass that I used to be so whether I like to do it or not isn't relevant, I still put on my shoes and do it anyway.
So it's up to you anon what you want to choose to do.
