*Create a detailed plan. Make the decision that you’re going to begin a home workout program and then follow that up with action. If you’re not used to working out at home, it can be hard to stay committed with so many distractions. Set up a schedule at the beginning of each week. List out how many workouts you want to do that week, the nature of the workouts you want to do, and exactly what days you plan to do them. This simple planning step, as opposed to a haphazard “I’ll start tomorrow,” will greatly improve the likelihood of completing them.
*Establish boundaries! Teach other members of your household that your workout time is a priority and that you need time devoted to your mental and physical health. Be sure to enforce those boundaries! Women, especially mothers, find it challenging not to immediately stop what they’re doing when a family member needs them. Unless it’s urgent, you can train your family to respect your fitness commitment while you’re also training your body!
*Take advantage of all the free resources the internet has to offer. There are so many professional and complimentary offerings online that can be so helpful if you’re just starting out or not sure what to do to get in an effective home workout.
