By Michelle L Published 05/16/2010 | Fitness

Letís face it; exercising is something that most people do not like to do because we are too lazy to work out. On the other hand, if you want to remain fit and healthy you need to exercise on a regular basis. So what do you do when you donít feel like exercising? Do you just forget the idea and do something else instead?

The good news is that I have some tips on how you can motivate yourself to exercise regularly. If you donít know how to motivate yourself top work out regularly, then you will benefit by reading these tips.

One of the first tips to motivate yourself to workout regularly is to remind yourself of how fit you are going to be when you exercise. I donít know about others but this really worked for me. I kept reminding myself on how good I am going to look when I work out on a daily basis and this is what has kept me moving. You can try this too, as it may work for you.

It is important for you to understand that when you work out, you can eat the foods that you want without worrying about how the fats in the foods will make you gain weight. I am not saying that you should eat as much as you want when you exercise. All I am saying is that exercising will help you maintain an average weight and you will not have to feel guilty about eating high fat foods.

Think of all the health benefits that you are going to enjoy when you exercise. It must not be unknown to you that working out is good for your physical health as well as mental health. You will actually benefit when you exercise on a regular basis as you will be able to keep diseases at bay. If you are suffering from diseases like diabetes or high blood pressure then you will be able to keep the illness in check by working out and keeping fit.

I donít know why but for some reason or the other, people do not like working out alone. If you can find someone who can go and exercise with you to the gym then it will be a great idea because the two of you will be able to motivate each other then.
