  • Find success stories to read to help keep you inspired.
  • Find motivational quotes to put where you will see them.
  •  Talk positively to yourself! Give yourself positive feedback! Congratulate yourself!
  • Create a fitness journal

  • Blog about your exercise
  • Make yourself accountable have a friend to ask you how it is going.
  • Publish your updates in social media (peer pressure)
  • Read about fitness and activities that you enjoy.

Sometimes you have to do just what you need to do just because you need to do it!  Your body will thank you later!
