Staying on Track...Even at a Restaurant

When you're going to a restaurant, pull up the menu and plan your meal AHEAD of schedule. When you get to the restaurant, decline a menu. When the waitperson takes orders, give yours first and excuse yourself to the restroom to wash your hands while others are ordering to avoid changing your order.

Put Your Shoes On

If I find I really don't want to go to the gym, I'll just say, "Fine, I won't go. But I'll put my gym shoes on." Once I have my gym shoes on, somehow I'm out the door. If you can't bring yourself to start working out, just try to take one small step in that direction. The first step is the hardest!

Add Some Randomness to Your Workout

Go random! Most treadmills, ellipticals, and other exercise machines have different programs, like Hills, Fat Burn, etc. Intervals are a fantastic way to torch calories and improve cardiovascular fitness and endurance. Try the Random program to keep your muscles guessing!

Don't start where you want to finish when beginning to exercise

Unless you have been an athlete, start slowly with exericise. Even doing several short walks is better that trying to do a whole mile the first day you start. Build up to your goals.

Making Elliptical Training More Effective

Working out on those elliptical trainers at the gym can be fun, especially if you are listening to music or an audiobook on your iPod. But after a while, the routine can get stale. Many people only use their legs and just let their arms "hang on for the ride", but this is not an effective workout.
