1) Find an exercise program that has structure and a timeline to follow. 

2) Try a detox or cleanse to start becoming more mindful of how food affects your mind and body.

3) Address eating habits 1 at a time versus all at once, i.e. don't make it an all or nothing situation.

4) Try some new form of exercise to get you inspired, New always motivates.

5) Navigate towards healthy fit people, it will rub off.  The same is true of unhealthy people, it rubs off.

6) Ensure your exercise is balanced including cardio, strength and flexibility.

7) Don't go it alone, do group exercise, running clubs, buddy system, etc.

9) Fitness is an individual thing, trial and error to see what works best for you.

10) Don't psyche yourself out, like it is a so hard to workout regularly and eat well, it is a gift to yourself.
