Even if I'm not feeling like getting out and working out, I lace up my sneakers and promise I'll do 10 minutes and then I can stop. After I get out there, I'm ready to keep moving and go beyond my 10 minute promise!

Take "I will Try" out of the equation Change it to " I Will do"
Too often we say I will try to do such and such. Already we are half way to defeat and we haven't laced up our sneakers. Instead of saying "I will Try to do 10 pushups" say "I will do 10 pushups" half of doing what needs to be done is believing that you can! No more defeatist mentality, believe that you are capable, that you are strong and even if you don't complete the task know that you did something!104
I have to earn TV time. I DVR my favorite shows and they are not allowed to be played until I exercise. So, if I don't want to find out on the news who went home on the Biggest Loser then I've got to lace up my sneakers! I record about 1 hour then I hop on my elliptical. No commercials!
