14 Tips for Starting and Sticking with a Workout Routine
Stop Failure Before it Starts
-- By Julie Isphording, former Olympian
"If you have time to watch TV then you have time to exercise and cook health meals. It's just a matter of priorities." found on SP post.




For some of us out there, if we could just convince ourselves that there is enough time in the day to exercise, we could be on track to a great fitness program. For others, we get started but quickly lose momentum and give up. To help get started and stay on track, here are a few tips:

Throw away the bathing suit you wore in high schoolÖ and the memory too. Itís normal to have a mental image of yourself when you last exercised like a fiend. But if that image is from high school, you could be in big trouble. Even if itís from last year, forget it. Remember as little as possible of what you used to look like. Starting today, make new memories.

Prepare. We already know you donít have the time, so write it down like an appointment every day. You wouldnít cancel an appointment, why would you cancel on yourself? Arenít you important too?

Start slowly. Do much less than what youíre capable of. Take a 20-minute walk if youíre returning to exercise. You might feel like itís not enough, but itís a good start.

Get the family involved. Run while your daughter rides her bike. Go to a local track and let the kids play their own games. Run with your spouse. Sign up for a local 10K. Walk with your son. Celebrate with a little something special after every activity.

Where are your friends? Four words, four reasons Ė motivation, inspiration, determination, conversation. Surround yourself with friends who think positive and live large.

Put the pain in perspective. When the going gets tough, remember that you have survived 600 carpools, 540 loads of laundry (this month), 41 baseball games, 230 dinners and one family vacation. Whatís the big deal?

Allow yourself to slow down. Youíre driving this bus! For the first time today, you are in control.

Sign up for a race. Itís a goal to strive for and adds a little meaning to your everyday workout.

Run/walk in public. Be proud of your accomplishment. Take in all the sites and be an inspiration to others.

Just show up. Go to the gym, class, or the park. Once youíre there, itís hard to say no. 98% of life is showing up.

Eat. Follow a healthy eating pattern. If you limit your calorie intake, you will not have enough energy to work out and your metabolism will slow down.

Understand your energy cycle. There are peaks during our days. Even during the week. Try to complete your workout when you feel good about yourself.

Wallow in your greatness. You can exercise to become a better exerciser, or you can exercise to become a better mother, a better father, doctor, teacher, or a better friend Ė or you can exercise to become BETTER. Be proud of that accomplishment.

Have fun. Whereís your childlike spirit? When you can make workouts "playouts," youíve got it made.
Donít give up on yourself. After all, itís never too late to be that healthy person you might have been.

No, i am fine with it as long as I know what it is. Somehow I didn't learn this in the beginning I guess. It sure is the best way to keep all of your family straight!! It was hard following your posts at the time and I want to follow your posts about your family. Thank you for cluing me in. Georgine
