1. Exercise even if you only have 15 minutes to do it. If you have no time to hit the gym, just dance around your room or do some jumping jacks and lower body work! 2. When you plan to workout, actually DO it. Don't skip it and snack instead. Force yourself it be active even for the shortest amount of time. 3. Invest in a fitness tracker. Start small with a free app and then if you are feeling the benefits you can think of moving up to some wearable tech like a FitBit! 4. Mix up your routine. Do yoga one day, interval training the next, and a light jog the following day. You won't get bored and you'll be burning more calories. 5. Instead of skipping a workout, focus on how great you’ll feel after. Working out isn’t always fun while you’re doing it, but the endorphin high you get after is! 6. Don’t wait for an occasion to get in shape. If you only rush to the gym six weeks before you have a tight dress to wear to a party you’ll kill yourself trying to meet unrealistic goals. Fitness is a lifestyle! 7. Eat. REAL FOOD. Don't give up all of the foods you love (like bread and chocolate) You'll just end up breaking, binging, and ruining your hard work. Don’t do it. Everything in moderation! 8. Keep weeknight drinking to a minimum. It saps your energy level for the rest of the week, making it that much harder to get your workouts in. 9. Work out at home if you can’t get to a gym. Get a bright pink workout mat and have fun. 10. Buy a foam roller. This little device can seriously increase your range of motion during exercise! 11. Exercise when you’re sore. A light jog or brisk walk can help alleviate sore muscles more quickly than sitting around doing nothing. 12. Focus on how you want to feel rather than how you want to look. Working out leads to increased energy and good vibrations all around. Focus on feeling good rather than looking good and you’ll “see” results quickly. 13. Remember that the main goal isn’t to run 10 miles a day, it’s just to do something physical. 14. Get sleep. The more you work out, the more you’ll want to get a good night’s sleep!
I personally consider #7 to be the most important habit. Can't build a strong house with poor or no ingredients. Must have strong and good supplies to build a firm structure.
