Realistic Goals

I always jump into things with two feet. But going too fast has only brought me injuries. I'm learning to set more long term goals and realizing that 2 or 3 months of exercise after years of inactivity do not make me an athlete ..yet.

But I Don't Wanna!

Excercising (and cleaning)

When I get home from work - I cannot sit down. Once I sit down I am done and don't want to get up and move. So I get my exercising (and house cleaning) done ASAP when getting home.

Always First Thing in the Morning

Always get your exercise in first thing in the morning - Why? If you don't there are always other things that will become a priority - giving you excuses not to exercise - Exercising first things frees up the day for the rest of life to happen. JUST DO IT!!!
