Create an Exercise Group

Create a group of friends or possible strangers (will only be at first) and set up regular times to exercise. I have yet to not go due to my enjoyment of working out with those ladies. :)

Seems almost pointless to say but don't procrastinate.

By the time you argue with yourself, and play the would I and should I game. You could be done. I just tell myself that I will do it for 10 minutes I can quit. Most of the time that's all it takes and I am always glad I did it.

no couch after work

I take my work out duds to work with me and change there before going to the gym...it motivates me to go the extra exits instead of going home !

Work out for at least an hour

If you stay in the gym for at least an hour every day you will see results. Everything these days is meant to save you time and that includes saving time on your workout. I hate to say it, but if you really want to see results and in a reasonable amount of time, it means staying the in gym.

exercise before breakfast A.M.

I fond out that if I get my exercise in before breakfast, is when I lose my weight. When I walked after supper I couldn't lose anything!
