    Decide what you want to achieve. You must have heard the statement 'Failing to plan is planning to fail'. Well, this rings very true for your fitness training and weight loss program.

    Keep a journal to chart your progress. It will give you inspiration to continue at that turning point when most people give up. Just imagine yourself kicking back on Day 57, as you realize in amazement that over the past 8 weeks you have either lost 20 pounds, lifted an extra 30kg in your daily work out session or can now fit into that dress you wore as care-free teenager. Your journal should include a commentary on your daily workout sessions, weight, exercise variations, number of reps and goals towards your next workout.
