QUESTION: I MAKE UP MY MIND TO START EXERCISING, I MAKE A PLAN OF WHAT I'M GOING TO DO, AND THEN I HAVE TROUBLE STICKING TO MY PLAN. IN FACT, OFTEN I DO A LOT OF EXERCISE FOR A WEEK OR TWO AND THEN I CAN'T SEEM TO MOTIVATE MYSELF TO DO ANYTHING AT ALL. HOW CAN I KEEP THIS FROM HAPPENING AND STAY MOTIVATED TO EXERCISE?

ANSWER: I TALK TO MANY PEOPLE WHO DESCRIBE THE SAME PATTERN YOU DO. THEY COME TO ME ALL PSYCHED UP! THEY DESCRIBE TO ME WHAT THEY INTEND TO DO. "I THINK I SHOULD DO 1 HOUR OF EXERCISE FIRST THING EVERYDAY!" THEN THEY TRY STICKING TO THEIR PLAN FOR A FEW DAYS, MAYBE EVEN A WEEK OR TWO, AND THEN THEY "BURN OUT". ESPECIALLY WHEN THIS PATTERN OCCURS EVERY TIME YOU HAVE THE GOOD INTENTION TO EXERCISE, THIS BECOMES A SELF-DEFEATING LOSING BATTLE. SOUND FAMILIAR?

HERE'S HOW TO BREAK THIS LOSING PATTERN:

SET YOURSELF UP TO WIN. BEGIN MAKING EXERCISE A PART OF YOUR LIFE BY SETTING SMALL, ATTAINABLE EXERCISE GOALS. A GOAL SUCH AS, "1 HOUR OF EXERCISE FIRST THING EVERYDAY" IS TOO BIG OF A GOAL. IT IS UNREALISTIC AND UNATTAINABLE AND THEREFORE, SELF-DEFEATING. SET SMALLER GOALS. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO EXCEED YOUR GOAL AND SET YOURSELF UP TO WIN, THAN TO FALL SHORT OF YOUR GOAL AND SET YOURSELF UP TO FAIL.
