5 Ways to Keep Up Your Exercise Routine

exercise, motivation

Starting an exercise routine is fairly easy. Keeping it up is hard!

Diana Brandmeyer has some tips that can help:

1. Start working out on Monday and as early in the day as you can.

2. Get a workout buddy to hold you accountable. *note this doesn’t have to be a buddy that exercises when you do. I have a friend who calls and asks if I worked out. I can’t lie to her so this works for me.

3. Don’t take more than a one day break between workouts–unless you like starting over.

4. Feeling stuck, not sure you are doing a move right? Hire a trainer for a session.

5. Get a tip jar. Love this one, it came from Kimberly Smith, my boot camp instructor. After a workout I add some money to the jar. {Get 10 more tips here}

 

Have an Inspired Day by using one of Diana’s tips for keeping up with your exercise routine.

 

 

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

  1. I have found waking up with the mindset of getting some type of exercise-be it a bike ride or using the Bowflex- begins when i wake up. Often it starts even before I go to sleep when I set out my clothes. i like these suggestions.

      Bill, I knew you’d be all over this. I find I’m the same way. I have to work out first thing or it just doesn’t happen. That and it gives me the energy I need! I am changing comment platforms and my previous comments aren’t yet loaded. Thanks for your patience!

  2. I’ve recently discovered the power of a workout buddy. Not only does it provide extra accountability, but it really makes the actual exercising much more enjoyable.

      That’s great, Loren. I like to workout alone, but having my husband drag me to the gym on occasion is helpful too.
