At the beginning of the week, create an activity plan to help you reach your goals. Start by identifying your goals for the week.
Based on your goals, write down when you are going to exercise and what you are going to do. If something comes up that keeps you from exercising on one of your selected days, try to find another day (or time) as a make-up. Having a routine is important but so is the ability to adapt your schedule as needed.
