We all know that exercise regularly will help us lose weight, keep weight, and is the best thing to do for our health, but for any reason or another … Choose one:
“I do not have time.”

“I hate exercise.”

Determine your goals: make fitness a regular part of your life, first “become real” with yourself; I log in where you are and where you want to be.
Where are you now? (What statement below you represent the best?)
I intend to practice (at least three days a week) over the next six months.
I intend to practice (at least three days a week) in the next month.
I take action now to exercise (at least three days a week).
I exercise regularly (at least three days a week) for at least six months.
What do you want to accomplish in the future? Ask yourself: “If I were so healthy and I could possibly be, what would I say? What would I say? What would I feel? What would be different from me ? How to be fit and healthy in my life? ” Take a few moments to dream and write everything that comes to my mind.
What do you want to accomplish in the next year? What would you like to accomplish in the next three months, six months and the following year? Take a few moments to write your specific long-term goals related to your health and fitness. What ways will help you achieve your desired goals? RELATING TO YOUR FITNESS PROGRAM, ask yourself this question: “What can I do not do that I do not do right now, will certainly help me achieve my desired fitness goals?” Maybe you plan your exercise sessions before the week. Take the time to think about opportunities. What do you want to achieve your goals? On your future personal fitness program, what obstacles do you need to overcome To help you recover or stay on track? What support systems can you put in place to help you do what you know best for you?
Check your fitness expectations: Thoughts of “I will become thin in a month” or “I will work every day of the week for two hours a day” can sabotage your future fitness plan even before starting. These unrealistic expectations can lead to experiences that diminish your self-confidence and eventually lead to ending your fitness program. Instead of defining unrealistic goals and waiting for the perfection of yourself, start with the systematic planning of the experiences you know you can achieve.
Instead of starting your future fitness program with the idea you will exercise six days your first week when you are not exercised for months, start with planning:
Take the stairs instead of the elevator three over five days a week this week.
Park your car a little further and enter work.
Walk for 10 minutes, three days this week at lunch.
Perform a 4-3-2-1 workout for 10 minutes at least three days this week. (Four minutes of high intensity cardio-intensity, three minutes of resistance training, two minutes of basic exercises and a minute of stretching.)
