Great article!! I can relate as I have lost motivation in committing to an exercise regimen. Mainly because I’m always on the go. The five tips you’ve shared inspire me to start back up. I agree with the point you made; treating the activity like an important meeting that can’t be canceled. That’s key for me just trying to fit it into my schedule. Thanks Theresa for the motivation.

Great article with lots of helpful tips to getting on track. I agree 100% about scheduling workouts like a meeting. I used to do that, but fell out of the habit and it really did work. Forced me to get up and go instead of working right through my workout. I also paid myself for each workout that I did. I ended up with a nice chunk of change at the end of the year. Looking forward to getting on track and using this article as a checklist of what I need to do.

I started putting these into practice. Having a good playlist is a great ideas. I was so into the music I didn’t feel the time pass by or feel tired.

Also, treating my workout as a meeting and putting on my calendar made me feel guilty if I saw the reminder pop up and I didn’t go. My google calendar has a great Goal reminder option that helped with this.

Michele - September 3, 2016

Wonderful article Theresa! We often put our exercise goals on the back burner because we don’t treat them as a non-negotiable activity in our lives. I’ll definitely be putting these tips into my calendar to remind me that I have to give as much attention to my health as I do to all the other areas of my life!
