Prioritise your fitness activity

Plan to succeed by putting exercise on your weekly schedule. Then make it the highest priority item for that day. Do not accept other invitations for that time unless you can reschedule your fitness activity for a time that you know you will committ to.

Schedule, schedule, schedule.

The most important thing in my weight loss journey is scheduling. I take my meals around the same time everyday as well as when I exercise. When you stay on a schedule 95% of the time it becomes a natural part of your life.

Scheduling Exercise

Have a schedule of what exercise I am going to do each day for the week, including what days my rest days are really helps keep me on track. You can put them on a calendar and be able to check them off. This is great for those people who like to make lists and mark things off of them!

Make an appointment for activity

I'm always on time for appointments and scheduled events, but for a while, I would allow myself to skip exercise. So, now I make an appointment, and schedule myself a time to do what I need to do! A planned activity and time can be much more effective than a "I'll do some exercise today" vision.

My Busy Schedule Secret

I'm a full time college student with a full time job, it's easy to get too busy to fit in exercise. On days when I don't have much time I go to my school's track and walk during my break. It's not hardcore cardio, but every little bit counts (:

Combining Exercise with Other Daily Tasks

I used to have trouble working strength training into my schedule. When making tea, I used to put the water on, go sit down and wait for the water to boil, get up, pour the water into the teapot, set the timer, go sit down and wait for the tea to brew. Now, instead of sitting down, I perform strength training exercises while making tea - wall pushups, lunges, etc... Making 2 cups of tea a day can help me get up to 20 minutes of strength training. emoticon

Take a class

Signing up for a class will bring results. Everyone has to start somewhere! You will commit to yourself by putting the time on your schedule. You will learn how to do something you never tried OR improve to do it better. You'll be with others with like interests and have a built in support system. You may even find a new pursuit or become good enough to teach it yourself.

Weekly Planning White Board

I have a white board in my kitchen where, every Sunday, I organize my week across the following categories: House, Office, Kids, General To Do, and Dinners. I grocery shop on Mondays. Every Sunday I also schedule gym time and plan my workouts.

Rest Days are, well, Restful!

It is positive thinking to reserve a rest day for your body, mind, and spirit to recoup and heal. Sometimes if you push too hard, there is muscle damage, and you need to allow healing. 1 day a week, I stretch, and may or may not do light cardio, but I give myself a much needed break. It works!

Use Your Computer!

Make computer time constructive! Use your computer to send you reminders throughout the day. I set mine to remind me when it's time to take daily medication, when to go exercise, when to start dinner, etc.

Family Schedule & Communication Journal

I have 3 teenage children, so we have a busy house! To keep our schedules straight, I bought a composition book. In the beginning of each week, I paste a family schedule into the book. If things changed, we had to write it in the journal. Anything else we needed to communicate could also go in the journal!

schedule your feedings ;)

When I first started tracking, I paid very close attention to WHEN I would want to eat, in addition to what I was eating. This information helps now - I try to pre-plan WHEN I am going to want food - that helps give a clue as to whether or not I'm really hungry or eating for another reason.

Make it apart of your everyday life.

I am learning to make exercise a normal part of my day, the same as taking a bath, brushing my teeth, and eating dinner. It shouldn't be something that you pencil into your day, just so you can have the option to erase it later.
