If you have the wrong attitude about fitness, you’re setting yourself up for failure. Most people look at exercise as:


  • Punishment for bad eating
  • An obligation
  • Painful
  • Time consuming
  • Impossible to sustain over a long period of time
  • Boring


If any of these sound familiar, how long do you think you’ll stick with your program? Nobody wants to do something painful, boring or obligatory. Before you throw yourself into weight loss, suss out your attitudes about exercise and figure out whether these attitudes are true or just lies you’ve been telling yourself for years. Then, try a different perspective and look at exercise as:


  • A break from a stressful workday
  • A way to boost energy and mood
  • The only time you’ll have to yourself all day
  • A chance to get totally physical and let your mind rest
  • A chance to reward your body for working so hard
  • A way to improve your quality of life immediately
