Get Dressed Up
Let's be honest: Even the most dedicated fitness buff doesn't want to work out every day. We all have those days when it's much easier to keep sitting on the couch watching a Law and Order marathon than to get up and exercise. If you can't entertain the idea of a workout, at least get up and put on your sneakers and workout clothes. Lying around the house in your gear and not doing something active will probably make you feel silly or guilty enough that you'll get up and get on with the program. If that still doesn't work, make a bargain with yourself to just do the warm-up. Often you'll find that getting started is the hardest part and that once you're done with the first five-minute segment, you'll be ready to move on to the next. Don't worry, you're up to the challenge, and those TV show characters will be there for you when you're done!
