So, how are coming with your workouts? I am new to sp and came across your post. I too, find I need a way to be held accountable. I use an app called Sportstracker that really keeps me motivated to work out. Keep up the good work.

Life just keeps getting better and better!

DMORAN7,

I give all new members and anyone who will listen to me one piece of advice and it's this,"Don't look at good health or weight loss with an all or nothing mentality". If the only healthy thing you did for yourself today was drink 8 glasses of water, that's still a step in the right direction. Set simple and realistic goals you CAN stick with so that you don't set yourself up for failure.

If you think you might not be able to run for three days and do strength training for 2-3 then, that's too much. Why not set a goal to run twice this week and do strength training once. Keep yourself on a schedule. Don't try to do everything at once or you will end up frustrated. no one ever became a healthy eater or exerciser. Change takes time, thus the need to be patient with yourself and your body.

So, why not try running for two days and strength training for one day ? Do that for a few weeks to allow yourself and your body time to adapt to the routine. because that's what we hope to achieve when we set out to make a healthy change. We hope that the changes we make become a routine.

And if you want something to become a routine or a habit, you need to slowly ease into that routine.

Perhaps you are planning on doing to much, too soon???

You are best to gradually worked up to it - time and intensity. Then you will find that apart from your body thanking you for it (less stiffness/soreness etc.) it will more easily become a long-time habit, which means you will be less likely to fall by the wayside.

Best of luck,
Kris

I need accountability!! I've been trying to get back in the rhythm of working out, but I'm not doing too well. My plan is to run 30 minutes Sat, Tues, and Thursday then lift weights on Monday and Friday. Ask me how I'm doing during the week. If I don't pull through, I need someone to be accountable to. Thanks!! emoticon
