    One thing I'm really bad at is creating and sticking to a routine. It's easy to get distracted and forget or put off the excercise/fitness thing.

    So far I've found the # of daily goal steps on Fitbit/Jawbone to be pretty motivating because you've got something to shoot for but it doesn't nudge you or urge you to get off your butt because you're not going to meet your goal.

    I'm trying to create a routine that doesn't let me slack and this should help on both the fitness and dietary health side of things:
    • Wake up every morning and walk to starbucks (.7 miles)
    • Catch up completely on transactional e-mails
    • Walk to grocery store (.1 mile)
    • Buy lunch/dinner for that day/night (healthy!)
    • Walk home (.8 miles)

    If I can do this daily, I think I've won half the battle. I'll be starting my day right, getting some excercise, and making sure I don't end up eating unhealthy food. It's so easy to get sucked into ordering food or dining out, but this should prevent that...

    Now... any apps that can help me stick to this? I've heard of some that you set goals for yourself and if you don't reach them it posts to you social networks about how you failed for the day. Can't remember the names, though.

    Any other good ideas for routines to stick to the fitness guns?

    Hello, Rob
    I use the GoalTracker, it's easy and looks cool, but it doesn't post anything to social networks without your permission but it motivates well

    Yeah, GoalTracker really helps you. It's so easy to use & it will keep motivated all the time so that you miss any thing that is in your routine.
