Schedule your weekly exercise routine and consider it an appointment. With 3 kids and a full time job, my biggest excuse was always "No Time". Scheduling exercise helped me plan my weekly routine and hold myself accountable.
This works especially well when you schedule your exercise appointment with a friend or enroll in a scheduled class.
Since many people spend lots of hours on Facebook & Twitter, this can be a great way to get reminders about your goals and stay in touch with SparkPeople. We share tips, contests, updates, and generally just have lots of fun with members there too!
When I don't feel like doing my scheduled run, I simply tell myself, "Okay, then I will just walk instead." What usually happens is; I feel so good to be out there, and my music is awesome, so I end up running!
Sometimes my "walk" is just a warm up for my scheduled "run"
