I go from working out every day to skipping a few days and then go back to it. How do you maintain a workout routine that is consistant?

    i think that routine is just fine. :) there is nothing wrong with taking a couple days off as long as you are eating right and stuff. sometimes we workout extra hard and we just need a little longer to recover. your pace, your workout..just dont ever give up :)

    It helps me to have a variety of things to chose from so I don't get bored and to have stuff I can do at the house and really enjoy.

    Ah, that is a tough one - I struggled with that for many years, and finally was able to make it my routine. Someone once told me that if you can stick with it for a week, it becomes a habit. First of all, find something you really enjoy doing - like taking a walk - it doesn't have to be a long walk, but aim for five or ten minutes at first, increasing your time each day. You will soon learn that you look forward to walking and will feel so much better. Good luck!

    I don't have the answer. Just know, you are not alone. I struggle with consistency also. emoticon emoticon

    I just know that I have to do it to feel better and to lose weight. I told myself as soon as I get up I will get a workout in - and I have. Now it has become a habit and I have to do it because I either don't feel as well or I feel guilty that I didn't do it.
    I am having some health issues right now and it is bugging me that I can't do my usual routines and have to find alternatives. I am glad that exercise has become such a habit for me that I am trying to find other ways of exercising until I heal. I am so thankful I am like that now - before I would have just said I was hurt and screw the exercising!
    You have to make it part of your life and something you want to do daily.
    Good luck! emoticon

    Since I do my exercising at home, I do have planned episodes of about 10 minutes each of exercise, plus in the evening I do my strength exercises shortly before I go to bed.
