So, the new year is about 7 weeks old now, and most of us are slowly getting away from meeting our New Year's resolutions. Well, technically I didn't make a measureable resolution, I just said I wanted to be healthier, but implied in that that I would be eating better and exercising some. I started out well, using the Wii Fit at least 3-4 times a week, and making a conscious effort to eat better. I'm still paying attention to what I eat (although I do have slip-ups from time to time), but have almost completely fallen off the exercise bandwagon.

I'm working full time, so my day is full. I'm tired when I get home, and don't want to work out. I know in my heart of hearts that if I'd just get off my butt and do something, I'd start feeling better, but I can't seem to make that leap. On one Cocker Spaniel forum that I belong to we have sort of a Biggest Loser thing going, but we're all facing the same challenge as far as getting moving.

What do you use for motivation? Do you have any hints for me? And please, don't suggest I get up earlier in the morning - 5:45am really is the earliest I can wake up and actually be human.

Is there a gym or any exercise classes offered at your office during the lunch hour?

The way I get back into a gym routine is to put it in my schedule/calendar. If you put it in there and treat it like any other appointment you are more likely to do it.

Try to find a workout buddy. So you can be accountable to each other. Agree to consequences for missing a scheduled workout and/or a reward for making all workouts in a month (or whatever timeline you choose).

Good Luck :)
