Like finding a partner, you must find out what you want and what you love, choosing a fitness activity is like finding a mate that you will be with until the end of your journey. You must love and be dedicated to your choice.
Doing what you love to do, will only increase your willingness to stay involved.
I've found that I really do move more when I do something I love - like hooping or biking ;) Even though a morning walk or family moving is a great idea, it doesn't always happen which means I'm not making my exercise a priority....doing something I love that's easy for me to do is the key to my movement ;)
It's okay to step back once in awhile and just enjoy the moment. Even in tough situations - it's important to smile and laugh here and there. Don't restrict yourself from doing things you love because they're "not important" or because you think you'll be criticized for doing them. Let yourself enjoy life even if you're not at the best place you could be. You only live once - make the best of it.
