Tick tock....

emoticon One thing that works for me is keeping an eye on the clock. If meals & workout times are kept consistent it will all fit into the day. Scheduling & compartmentalizing my day has brought with it consistency and a lot of success. I don't allow myself to while away time in front of the computer screen or watching something of interest on TV when it's time for a workout or when it's time to eat. Hope this might help you too.

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.

Work Out Anytime

Don't fret about exercising late at night. It's better to get that workout in than to hold it off for the morning when you'll be too busy and it will be way too easy to say you don't have time.

Some people are morning people, and more power to them ... but every time I've tried to set up a morning routine, I've failed to actually continue to exercise over a prolonged period. 11pm is more my style, and I've been able to keep on track much better this way.

Fitness Support Network

Developing a network of fitness buddies and mentors has helped to keep me motivated and has turned me on to new activities I probably wouldn't have tried on my own.

Commit in Advance

I find that if I decide the night before how and when I'm going to get my exercise the following day, I'm much more likely to do it. Every evening I decide whether I'll go to a class at the gym or go for a long walk or if it will be a day off. That way, it's already in my head when I wake up!

Try to Work Out at the Same Time Each Day

Working out at the same time each day (whether morning, afternoon or evening) helps make exercise part of your daily routine, and just becomes 'something I do at this time' rather than something you need to get specifically motivated for.
