Staying Consistent with an Exercise Routine: When All Else Fails

Posted Mar 14 2011 5:32pm
One of my goals over the next month is to lose some of the belly fat and to tone my muscles. I've already accepted that I can't have the same body I did when I was 21, so there's no use focusing on that anymore.

In a past post I offered tips on how you can stay motivated and inspired to exercise . Although I do practice what I preach, I have to admit that I still haven't been consistent with my exercise routine.

I've tried working out with my best friend so that I could have someone to be accountable to, but she likes to work out during the early morning and I'm just NOT a morning person.

I tend to make excuses for not working out - the most common one being, "I don't have the time." However, after taking inventory of the time I spend watching TV, I know that's a lame excuse. If I have the time to watch 2 hours of basketball (if not more) each week, then I have the time to actually go out and play basketball.

Well, just last week I figured out what works for me to exercise on a consistent basis. I have no idea why I never thought of it before...

I've incorporated exercise in my "To Do" list! When I write it down in my schedule, I'm more likely to exercise. I'm someone who thrives on completing things on a daily "To Do" list, so I can't ignore it when I look at that list several times a day.

Do you have any helpful tips to stay consistent with an exercise routine?
