- Tell someone you don't want to let down that you are starting a new program and plan to exercise 4 days a week. Have a judgmental mother? Tell her.
- Create a vision board and keep it in a place that you will see it most often during the day – so in your office or under one of those clear desk protectors is perfect. If you are an evening/after work or lunchtime exerciser; those photos and phrases can give you the extra “umph” to make it to the gym after a long day in the office. (The best blog I've found on building a vision board: http://www.elizabethrider.com/how-to-make-a-vision-board-that-works/)
- Pack your gym clothes and go straight to the gym after work. If you are a morning exerciser pack your gym bag and clothes the night before and put them in the car so literally all you have to do is get up, grab a snack and get in the car. And, well, get dressed 1st. I actually know people who sleep in their workout clothes – this is not just a crazy idea dreamed up by exercise bloggers.
- Stop focusing so much on EXERCISE and focus more on making friends and having a good time. Zumba, Barre, Yoga, Pilates, Walking, Hula Hooping, Playing Dance Dance Revolution on the Wii…it all counts!
