Compete with others trying to be come fitter.

When exercising donít compete with people below your level of fitness. Doing so will eventually set you back. You should only compete with people in your own fitness to range in order to stay at or improve you fitness level.

Music

When I start my exercising routine, I listen to music. I created a "workout" CD that helps keep me focused. It is just a bunch of songs off of other CDs that I have but my workout CD has songs that has a good beat to them. I listen to my IPOD when I go walking and keep rhythm as well!

Find something you love to do

When you want to be successful with your fitness routine, find something you love to do. You will stick with it longer. When you love to do it ..you are less likely to become bored.
It becomes something that you enjoy doing for a longer period of time. It become a pleasure to do.

A little bit more

Sometimes when I run I feel so drained. When I get this way I tell myself "just make it to the end of the block" or the end of this song, or the next street sign, or anything that represents a small mark. 9 times out of 10 I make it to my marker and the next one, and the one after that. Pretty
