Every Sunday I plan out my exercise for the week. I keep everything in Google Calendar. I look at the schedules for my gym, as well as my personal schedule, and plan out all my workouts. Once it is in my calendar, I treat it as an appointment that I cannot miss.

Schedule an appointment to do a task you've been putting off
Instead of cluttering up your mind thinking about something, maybe even beating yourself up for procrastinating, schedule a time to do the task. Mark it on your calendar! Treat it as if you would a doctor's appointment. Prepare and show up!
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.
