I am on day 3 of my workouts.. My goal is to tone my body from head to toe! How do I keep the drive to keep going? Ahh! When it hurts, I give up.

I always try to stay focused and think about how i will look after these workouts :)

No pain no gain. Personally, I love the pain because it means you are getting better and doing something right! Every workout, bit of pain and soreness is helping you achieve your goals- focus on that while working out.

Yes and no. What they know is, that after doing something for 3 weeks, nerve tracks have built and got stronger. So if you do something for 21 days, there is a big chance to build a habit. It's also helpful to doit same time and between two already existing habits.

But habits also can be built after one time (drugs, something which cause big pain or joy...) or never. It depends on how your emotions are involved. It would be too much to explain everything now.

After 21 days, first complete 40 days. I've heard after forty days it becomes a habit. Try to find a workout buddy to keep you motivated and on track. If you don't find one, at least keep posting here your progress. We'll motivated you. Best of luck, you're doing amazing  :)

21 days to create a habit, 3 months an addiction. Whenever you find yourself looking for excuses as why you shouldn't workout on that day lie to yourself and say "I'm just going to do something light today, just so I don't lose the habit" guarantee it'll be the best workout.
