1. Find a workout buddy. Find someone who wants to achieve similar goals and can go during the same times as you. You’ll be less likely to put-off working out if you know someone is counting on going with you. Workout buddies can also help push and challenge you, but remember, its a two-way street!

2.  Do it for yourself. You have to want to make physical changes or to keep a healthy lifestyle for yourself. 
3. Push yourself. It’s easy to go to the gym, sit on a bike and pedal away for 30 minutes without breaking much of a sweat. If you are going to the gym, you might as well make the most of it. If you bring a book or magazine, you’ve already lost the battle. You should leave feeling like you pushed yourself and made a good use of your time.

4. Mix it up. Good workouts can happen outside of the gym. Get a good cardio session by going on an outdoor hike, playing an outdoor sport or by going on an an outdoor run Sometimes you just need a change of venue to stay motivated and to make your workout exciting. 5. Make a list. Sometimes writing your fitness goals down will help you stay motivated. It helps to visualize what you are trying to achieve by working out. Try to read your list before working out to remind yourself why you are there.

6. Stay Committed. Determine how many days a week you want to workout and aim to be consistent. Seeing results is a great way to stay motivated but you’ll never see results if you don’t have a consistent routine.

6. Don’t get discouraged. If you aren’t seeing results right away, don’t give up. If you stick with a consistent routine, you should start seeing results within 3 months. If you aren’t getting the results you want, try making adjustments to your diet. Remember, eating healthy is just as important as working out.

I haven't blogged in a few months and anyone who has been following me, I'm sorry. I have been working a lot and looking into different dietary lifestyles. I'm working on my health coach certification which has added to my busy life. I guess my message is its okay to try new things and see if they work. I have been changing my diet trying to figure out how food makes me feel. I have realized for me, eating whole foods that are clean is the only way for me to eat and stay motivated. I have tried incorporating other foods and taking foods away. Understanding the chemical relationship as well as the emotional relationship with food is a long road with many bumps in the road. Don't feel discouraged if something doesn't work for you. Just change it! If you need any help with food and or fitness questions contact me.
Oh and I'm committed to blog once a week so you'll be hearing from me much more often!!!!!

In health,
