Here are a few suggestions that might help.
1. Tell someone else your fitness plans and goals. The mere fact that you’ve said what you plan to do out loud puts you on the hook to forge ahead. Have you ever told someone you were going to a meeting but when it came time it was a major pain in the neck to show up? Unless it is an emergency situation that came up you’ll show up because you told your friend or co-worker you were going to be there. Same principle applies here.
2. Join the gym. That in itself is the easy part. Every New Years at gyms across the country memberships explode with people that think that alone is the magic bullet. The key is to also take advantage of the introductory offers of having a personal trainer. A personal trainer will help you get started right and help create a success environment for you to succeed. It will in the long run be money well spent.
3. Find a workout buddy. Not only may it be possible for you to meet and work out together but you can agree to check each other’s workout journal bi-weekly or monthly and that will help keep you on track for your goal. Not keeping a journal? That in itself can be a huge help in keeping on track since you can see in black and white your progress.
4. Take a photo of yourself and hang it on the mirror. Then take a new photo every 60 days and put it next to the first one so you can compare the gains you’ve been making. That will get you out of bed to keep the appointment with yourself to exercise.
In the end you have to want it bad enough and your pay off strong enough that it will move you beyond those inevitable speed bumps, that I promise you're going to come across.
