Set Goals.

Ease back into your exercise routine with both short and long term goals. Measurable goals are very effective. Completing 45 minutes of physical activity 4 to 5 days a week is something you can easily track and achieve. It’s an attainable short-term goal. Your long term goal could be a 10-pound weight loss. The two work hand in hand. If you achieve the small goal, you will inevitably get to the bigger one.

  1. [pause] So you want a body like Lolo but you haven’t exercised since Flo Jo was in the Olympics? ~ haha.. I love it!

  2. I’ve always wanted an accountability partner but have found it hard to find one. How have others gone about finding accountability partners?

    • @Angel: You can find one in the gym, if you feel comfortable, but the best way to find one is to ask a friend or family member who you trust and has shown some discipline in other areas of their lives.

  3. I agree with everything except the “buddy system”. Workouts are my private time, collect and dumped negative thoughts ~ no talking or the like. I come off a 10 hour plus shift the last thing I want to do is engage with the outside world. My workouts are a physically active meditation.Secondly the last thing I need in my life is another way to disappointment myself or other, accountability is a novice idea for team work but when I’m doing something for me exclusively its not allowed. What I do for me I do for me.
