Tips on staying Committed to Exercise:
-Start small, not all out. If you are not a regular exerciser start with a commitment of 2-3 days a week. The goal is to make exercise part of your lifestyle rather than a 1-week effort.
-Find people you like to exercise with and commit to do it together. From walking with friends on certain mornings or planning a family hike or snowshoe every Sunday afternoon.
-Find a group fitness class you love going to. These are the best when you lack motivation. All you have to do is show up and the instructor will get you through the workout.
-Set a goal, NOT RELATED TO WEIGHT. Find a 5K in the Spring to train for or a bike ride like Little Red Riding Hood. Maybe your first sprint triathlon?
-Have someone who is going to hold you accountable (not a spouse or significant other)
-Start looking at exercise as a benefit to your life rather than a chore!
