When it comes to exercise, I am really good at making plans but I could use a little help with following through.

    I have friends that I walk with - I don't want to let them down so I will go. And I also have alternatives like a stationary bike and different workout dvds - so if you have something at the house when you can't get away that helps. For me, the more convenient it is - the more likely I will do it.

    Sometimes I go back to the Official January jumpstart fitness challenge. If its Wednesday and I know I've been slacking but can't think of any workout I want to do, I just do the Wednesday video. I can almost always find 10-minutes. The other thing that has really motivated me to commit to regular exercise has been recording my workout each day in a word document. It's really motivating now after 10 months of tracking this way I can scroll back and see exactly how many days I did something (even if only a 10-min video) vs days I took off. It's much more motivating to be able to see it that way and boy do I hate to log two off days in a row! Lastly, have you considered a heart rate monitor? The polar ft1 is a basic monitor for around 40dollars. The ft7 has a few more features for around $70. Feels so motivating to strap it on for 10-15 minutes a day, write down your results and try to beat them the next day. Has seriously turned walking the dog into a fitness challenge for me! Good luck finding your groove!!

    The hard part is just getting started. I always say to myself, that I will just do 10 min. After 10 min, I feel better, so I usually keep going.
    Good luck.
