◆ Find a work­out friend. Fit­ness with friends is al­ways more en­joy­able.

◆ Make a Com­mit­ment Plan to your­self, with no ex­cuses. For ex­am­ple com­mit to 20 min­utes of ex­er­cise four times a week. Or in­stead of spend­ing those first five min­utes of your day check­ing your emails or so­cial me­dia on your phone, try start­ing your day with move­ment. Five min­utes of burpees, rid­ing on a bike, or a quick run around the block might be the jump start you need.

◆ Take a look at your eat­ing habits and make small changes every week. Avoid bread, sugar and pro­cessed foods.

◆ Com­mit to do­ing at least the strength train­ing ses­sions a week. Strength train­ing im­proves your bone den­sity, de­creas­ing your risk of os­teo­poro­sis, in­creases your body’s longevity and makes you feel awe­some!

◆ Get some mo­ti­va­tional or pos­i­tive quotes, then put them around your house. You are worth it.
