1. Keep a Schedule
The biggest obstacle standing between you and your new body is time—especially when we're talking about the time to squeeze your workouts into your already jam-packed schedule.
Commitment is key. Don't leave your workouts to chance. At the beginning of every week, sit down and schedule them in. That way, if something else comes up, you can honestly say: "I'm sorry, but I have another appointment at that time. Can we do it a little earlier or later?" By doing this, you accomplish two things: you make your health top priority and you miss fewer workouts.
If for some reason you miss a workout, plan a make-up session immediately, even if it's a modified version later the same day. It's easier to stay on track—physically and mentally— if you've missed only one session (or part of a workout) than if you let 3 days slide by.
