Planning is the key to starting and keeping a fitness routine. Start by writing down specific and manageable goals. Keep it simple and take baby steps. It is better to do less and build on your success than to move too fast and injuring yourself. Also, by writing things down and tracking your progress you can stay accountable as well as have tangible evidence when you look back. Make sure to build in a non-food reward such as a massage or pedicure when you reach a goal!
