Sticking with exercise
So, you’ve started an exercise program. You’ve been going to the gym faithfully — maybe you’ve even hired a personal trainer. You’re feeling pretty good about yourself.
But wait, you’ve been here before and “slipped” off the wagon. How do you make sure you stick with the program this time?
• Emphasize the long haul — The difference between the short, intense jump into beginning exercise and the long haul of maintaining a long-term lifestyle change is similar to the many efforts people have at weight loss. In the short term, many diets seem effective; however, in the long haul, the success rates are usually pretty minimal. The moral of the story? Look at the big picture. Really “getting into” exercise for a couple of months isn’t enough. You need to learn habits that will last a lifetime. Make sure your program includes flexibility and fun. If you enjoy working out, you’ll want to keep doing it.
