5 on - 2 off

To ensure that I'm constitent with exercise, I have a 5 on - 2 off rule. I exercise for at least 45 min to 1 hour 5 days a week, with two rest days per week to recover. It also helps prevent exercise burn-out.

Recovery is important

Exercise is important - but so is recovery. Reward your body with a break after a couple of days of intense work outs. Your muscles could use the recovery time and it will help your overall fitness and weight loss efforts.

Reward yourself after every workout

Our health club has a very nice sauna, steam room, and jacuzzi facility (for both men and women, and also a very large public jacuzzi). I really, really like the large jacuzzi and reward myself after a good work out with a long relaxing soak in the jacuzzi. It makes me look forward to workouts.

Weigh yourself at the same time each day you're on the scale

Whether you weigh yourself daily, or weekly, it is important to pick the same time of the day each time you're on the scale. That way you are more accurately able to see your results (or lack of them) over time.

Vary your routine

I have three cardio exercises that I like to do - walking, swimming, and biking. They all use different core muscles, so I can 'cycle' through them, and not over stress a single core muscle group, which allows for faster recovery.
