I want to tell you about a book I am reading right now. It is called PUSH by Chalene Johnson. In the book she talks about how to set goals that are true to your lives values. Then she goes on to teach you how to achieve the goals. As part of the book she includes how to achieve fitness goals too. I like how she says in the book, “Fully 80 percent of results will come from your nutrition. Exercise accounts for only about 20 percent.”
One of the big things she teaches is to keep a daily to do list and always have 2 things relating to your big goal for the year on that list. The other things you should always include in your daily to do list are 3 health and fitness related items: one physical activity, one nutritional habit, and once knowledge/skill/ tools-related task.
If you are serious about finally achieving your goals in life and losing the weight or toning up; then this is the book that I would recommend for you. She makes it simple and tells you exactly what you need to be doing to work towards those goals daily.http://www.chalenejohnson.com/pushjumpstart/
