Starting to exercise and keeping at it can be a real struggle. Here are a few ways that helped me to get and stay motivated.
1. Lighten goals
Sometimes when starting to exercise, your goal may be too big for you at that time. Make smaller goals (go to the gym three times a week, walk a mile, drink more water). Slowly change your exercise habits and eating habits. Doing everything at once can be overwhelming.
2. Track or journal your progress
