When I'm super tired and just don't think I have the energy to exercise, I tell myself "just 10 minutes". Some days, once I start, I can do more and some days, I just do the 10 minutes. Either way, at least I exercised a few minutes.
I lost over 30 lbs in about a year, and my biggest revelation was that you CAN change your body drastically if you really want to. It's not just an infomercial gimmick! LOL
Look at your program and don't just do your favorites. We need all three types of activity to be healthy and fit. Try to do 2 of each of type of workout each week for a minimum. What is neglected gets weaker.
Some mornings I dread a workout. I tell myself I should get dressed and go anyway if I do five minutes it is 5 minutes more than I wanted to. Usually after 5 minutes I am committed to finishing the workout. Sometimes you have to take life 5 minutes at a time.
Along with strength and cardio training for my body, I've been doing daily facial exercises with the Facercise video. I've gotten rid of the double chin and jowls that had started to develop. My whole face is feeling and looking more toned. Inexpensive facelift....woo hoo!
The secret to my success is simple...get up early and exercise in the morning! As a single mom, I am too busy in the evenings with making dinner, helping with homework, etc. to get my workout in so I made the decision to get up early. It is really paying off!
