Exercise Motivation Tip No. 9: Forget the Past

Don't let previous bad experiences with exercise hinder you.
So maybe you werenít the most athletic kid in high school,
and were the last chosen for class games. That was years ago.
Your goal now is not to win a letter jacket or make the cheerleading
squad -- you want to exercise to stay healthy and enjoy your life.


Your health journey is a life changing experience. Not just 30 days, 60 days, or for 90 days. Make the choice to be healthier for the right reasons.

Exercise Motivation Tip No. 8: Make It Convenient

Do whatever you can to remove obstacles to exercise, and make it as
convenient as possible. So if you are time-pressed, for example,
don't spend time driving to a gym; try exercising at home to
fitness DVDs instead. If you're too tired to work out at the end
of the day, set your alarm a little earlier and exercise in the morning.

Exercise Motivation Tip No. 7: Break It Up

You can make it easier on yourself by splitting your exercise session
into two or three sessions. Research supports the idea that this can
be as beneficial as one long workout. So if you donít feel like
exercising for an hour on any given day, do three sessions of
20 minutes each.

I do agree that if you can't do the hr workout, then go ahead and split it up. I would recommend to try though. The longer your workout is....the more tired you get...the more energy you have to use....the more calories you will burn. On the flip side of that, I would recommend your workout be 60 to 90 minutes.

Exercise Motivation Tip No. 6: Find the Fun In It

Itís essential to find an activity you like and no, they donít mean sitting on the couch. With an explosion in the number and types of fitness classes at most gyms, it has become easier to find something to appeal to you, from aerobics to Zumba. If you're not the gym type, walk around your neighborhood or try activities around the house, such as walking up and down stairs or dancing with the stars in your living room. If you're motivated by being social, follow Geiger's lead and join a team.

Exercise Motivation Tip No. 5: Get Athletic Support

This isnít about garments but about spouses, girlfriends, boyfriends, buddies Ė
anyone who will encourage you. And if their encouragement goes beyond the
ďatta-boyĒ or ďatta-girlĒ approach, gently remind them that you donít need nagging. "The person should be in support, but not say, 'Oh, why not?' or 'Why canít you? Itís so easy.'" If you need additional help, hire a trainer.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND SPARK FRIENDS!
