Sometimes you need to have a goal to shoot for when you start a fitness program. I personally don’t like measuring progress by the scale – it lies! (More on that here: Why You Should Ignore Your Weight) Instead, measure your progress through effort. Are you working out? How about tipping yourself for each workout?! Put your “tips” in a jar that you save for a special reward: New workout clothes, a mani/pedi, or a new Personal Development book. You can even include a photo of your reward item in your jar.
