Boredom is a choice

Boredom is a choice. I can choose to be bored with a workout dvd or i can ignore that thought and choose to enjoy and push harder every time i do the workout.

Heart Rate Monitor

You need one! They take the guessing out of how many calories you burn during your cardio session. Get one with a chest strap and make sure it asks for your info- gender, age, weight, height- Polar is a great brand- I have never regretted spending the $$$- The best piece of fitness equipment I own.

Focus on the feeling after exercise not the number on the scale

One of the things that has helped me continue exercising everyday is the feeling i get EVERY TIME after i exercise. Its that rush of energy and that sense of accomplishment.

FOCUS ON TODAY

TODAY is a new day. TODAY I can do better than I did yesterday. TODAY I can make better choices. TODAY I will exercise. TODAY I will not focus on my mistakes of yesterday.

COMMIT

Make a goal and then commit to reaching it. Many goals aren't completed in one step. Its a process. COMMIT to that process!

"I'm not a morning person" Why not?

Everybody that works out in the morning says that they feel accomplished and they don't have to worry about it the rest of the day. I then see EXCUSES for not working out in the morning such as "I'm not a morning person", to me that says "I'm not committed enough to change my lifestyle."

Put on those shoes!

I find that when i don't really want to work out, if i just put on my workout shoes it gets the ball rolling and I'm ready to start my workout. Putting on my shoes/ workout cloths seems to be the hardest part. After the workout, i feel energized and ready to take on the world. So put on those shoes!
