When you perceive things as negative, chances are you will not stick to it.  Just as thinking positive about your diet program will help you succeed, so will thinking positive about your exercise program!  When you catch yourself thinking negative thoughts about your program, you need to counter them with positive ones.  For example, whenever you think, “I’m tired,” instead you can think, “If I push through, I’ll feel energized later.”  Instead of thinking, “I don’t like to sweat,” you can think, “Sweating helps to cool my body down as I work hard to lose weight.” 

When you think you’re bored, try thinking about any fun plans you have for the week.  Maybe there’s someone you can converse with, or a favorite t.v. show you can watch while exercising.  If your muscles feel sore or achy, remember that you’re challenging muscles you’re not used to using.  Think about how you’re making progress and building muscles that will help burn calories!  Exercise doesn’t always feel good, especially when you’re just starting out.  Thinking positive can help make exercise feel easier, so you can stick to your program to help you lose weight!
