Even if I don't feel like exercising, or ESPECIALLY if I don't feel like exercising, I go ahead and put on my workout clothes and running shoes. Then I think, "Well I'm already dressed, I might as well go!" It works pretty much every time and helps keep my accountable to myself and my program!

I'm not sure where I read this, possibly Women's Health or Sparkpeople, but I thought I'd share because it really helped me get out of bed this morning. Once you're in bed for the night, about to fall asleep, visualize getting up in the morning, putting on your workout clothes and your normal routine, driving to the gym, putting on your running shoes, and working out. I did this last night and hopped right out of bed this morning!
The only time of day I have to exercise is bright and early first thing in the morning and I am by no means a morning person. I found that I'd wake up when my alarm went off but then lounge around in my comfy PJ's. So instead I've invested in some comfy work out clothes, I wear them to bed and then when my alarm goes off at the break of dawn all I have to do when I get out of my bed is put on my running shoes and get moving!
