WEEK 1

Mind: "Dedicate five minutes a day to keeping an exercise journal, noting how you feel after each workout or how you stay active," Borges says. Seeing yourself achieve daily goals builds momentum.

Body: Do two sets of 8 to 12 reps per move twice a week on nonconsecutive days and 25 to 35 minutes of cardio five days a week.

WEEK 2

Mind: Plan ahead. Rather than wait for a break in your day to exercise, schedule it the night before.

Body: Do three sets of 8 to 12 reps per move three times a week and 35 to 45 minutes of cardio five days a week, performing cardio first on weight-lifting days.

WEEK 3

Mind: Find solutions, not excuses. If you don't have time for a full session, break it into 10-minute bits. "Once you've started, it's easier to keep going than it is to quit," Borges says.

Body: Do three sets of 15 to 20 reps per move three times a week and 45 to 55 minutes of cardio five days a week, performing cardio first on weight-lifting days.
