Are you having trouble starting your exercise program?

BY JASON JOHNSON

Are you having trouble starting your exercise program?

Just get started. Don’t put it off. It doesn’t matter if you start on a Thursday after work or on a Sunday morning after church. Just get started. Mark it down on a calendar. Schedule it with yourself as you would a doctor’s appointment or a meeting at work.

Put it on your Microsoft Outlook calendar or make a cell phone “exercise appointment” reminder. The hardest part is getting started. But if you schedule an “exercise appointment” with yourself, you’re much more likely to get out there and get started.

Would you miss your scheduled doctor’s appointment or your scheduled work
meeting? No, so make an “exercise appointment” with yourself and don’t miss
it.

The next week schedule two “exercise appointments” the next week try 3 “exercise appointments.” Get in the exercise habit. Experts say it takes about 30 days for an activity to become a habit.

Over time, you’ll automatically know that Tuesdays and Thursdays are your exercise days. It
becomes habit. Your body will thank you. Here is a great quote that is applicable:

“When it comes to eating right and exercising, there is no ‘I’ll start tomorrow.’ ¬†Tomorrow is the disease.”

Until next time.

Stay healthy and stay active,
