I go to crossfit two times a week. Making friends in the class that expect to see me there has made me accountable. I know if I miss a class they are going to be asking where I was. Telling them I was too tired would never cut it!

Schedule your weekly exercise routine and consider it an appointment. With 3 kids and a full time job, my biggest excuse was always "No Time". Scheduling exercise helped me plan my weekly routine and hold myself accountable.
This works especially well when you schedule your exercise appointment with a friend or enroll in a scheduled class.
If you find yourself dreading exercise, consider taking a class at the gym. I found the energy of a group very motivating and love the music. Call or look at the class schedule on the gym's website and try out a class. You just may find it to be the boost you need!
