First Motivation Monday!

Beginning any fitness program takes a lot of dedication and motivation. There are days you just don't want to FIT it in. The key is to find an activity you can't wait to do. Have you tried everything or a dabbled in a few fitness activities? If you do not like running you are not going to stick with it, find something else.
Your challenge is to give everything 2 weeks, if you don't like it at the end of 2 weeks pick a new activity.

Keep in mind it is important to do both strength training and cardio workouts. Some of your strength training can be incorporated in your sneaking it in with isometric exercises.
