Music will set you free, and not just for your workout!
Many people have "workout playlists" and such, but what about "don't get home from work & head straight for the couch playlists". Keep your music player handy and crank up the tunes before you have a chance to sit down.
And the best part about it is, it doesn't have to be all the upbeat techno crap you call "motivation" music. Make a list of ALL the songs you love, put it on shuffle and see how much easier it is to keep moving, instead of sitting down and vegging out!

Everyone falls off the wagon at times, but it's not the fact that we fall off but the fact that we get back on, that counts. When you want to come back after time off, think about how far you've already come. Even if you gained back weight, or maybe gained back all and then some, you've still never gone completely back to that old you. You STILL are in the fight to be healthy, and that has to count for something!
If you follow this secret, you won't look at getting/staying healthy as a chore but something that is fun and makes you happy.
