My Formula for Starting and Keeping an Exercise Routine
Start small. Be consistent. Same time every day. No exceptions.
Exercise for at least some completely do-able minimum number of minutes of your choosing. Make the number of minutes so small you have no excuse not to: 15 minutes.
Or... Work out until you run completely out of breath three times. This means you are so winded you have to take a break to continue.
Will power? You don't need it. There's nothing to fight through here if you remove the hurdles. Make a consistent schedule and make it small and manageable. Then you can do anything.
