I treat workouts like an appointment, and I schedule them early in the morning. I take spinning classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7am, and I swim on Mondays and Wednesdays at 7am. Working out at the same time every day makes it easier to stay on track. Scheduling my "appointments" so early in the morning also ensures that nothing else gets in the way!
