Don’t go overboard when you start something new. Begin slowly and pace yourself accordingly. Similarly, don’t push yourself too hard. Give yourself a rountine that you can mange even on days when you’re absolutely down. Accept your limits and work within them.
Try to workout with a friend. This way, you can inspire each other when you want to skip your routine and also while you’re woking out.
Don’t set goals that are seemingly impossible to attain after some time. If you set a gruelling pace, you won’t be able to keep up with it over time. Instead keep your goals simple and gradually increase them after you accomplish each one.
