Get A Buddy. Whether it’s the person you work out with, your spouse, your friend, or your mother who lives in Alaska, you may find it helpful to have someone who will hold you accountable. Their job is to motivate you and check on your progress. Designated naggers, you could call them. They should be your number one fan and cheerleader too.
Rewards. What worked in kindergarten will still work today. Set rewards for yourself for when you reach certain checkpoints or goals, and you will find your motivation increases. But don’t forget about the natural satisfaction that comes from becoming fit and healthy!
