i can relate to so many of these!
"pump up the tunes" : i do zumba, and we usually do the same songs at every class, and i've really grown to love them. so i downloaded them all and put them on my mp3 player... i listen to them in the car all week and i look SO forward to my classes because of it!!! also, sometimes i just put the songs on my stereo and do the zumba dances at home! :-D
"schedule it" : i find the exercise classes i'm interested in that take place before or after my regular classes (i'm a college student and my gym is on-campus), and as i plan my day, i plan to go to these just as i plan to go to the classes i'm being graded in. if i skip a class i feel like i'm playing hookie!
"look at yourself in the mirror" : i used to avoid mirrors, but since i started working out regularly, my self-image has improved astronomically... i still have my insecurities, but now when i look in the mirror i often think to myself (or even say out loud), "damn, i'm HOT!" and i feel proud of how strong my body is becoming.
WHAT A GREAT ARTICLE!!!!
