Last but not least …
You need support !
Make it common knowledge.
Tell your friends, family and work friends and ask them to keep you in you check in a positive way.
Make a fund raising promise to a charity / hospital / school cause
Having a target to meet can help you stay positive and motivated, and someone else benefits from your achievements and success.
Build your own team
Find people who are stronger than you and work out with them, or faster than you and run with them, or more educated than you and ask them questions.
These are people that you can turn to when you need advice or help.
Try and find a workout partner (or hire a personal trainer)
There are going to be days when you want to sleep in, skip your workout, or you are just short on time.
Find somebody who’s at a similar level of fitness as you and work out with them! He/she will push you on days when you’re not in the mood, and vice versa.
You can inspire and support each other, feed off of each other’s success, and offer up tough love when the complaining gets too much (and yes, there will be lots of complaining).
Most of all Enjoy the journey and good luck … you can do this.
