Liposuction is a great way to resolve pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. What it’s not so great for is weight loss–you’re going to have to do that work yourself.

The good news? Once you’ve gotten in shape, you’ll feel great and already be in the habit of working out. This will help you maintain the results of both your liposuction and your trips to the gym. The bad news? It’s sometimes hard to muster the motivation to work out.

Here are some tips to help you stay focused and motivated through the summer and beyond.

Use Your Smartphone

There’s an app for just about everything, and fitness is no exception. This shape.com article suggests 9 great ways to stay motivated with your smartphone. Some of these fitness apps are games designed to motivate, including promising yourself cash for a job well done.

Need Motivation to Go to the Gym?Try a New Schedule

Do you find that working out when you get home just isn’t working out? If you’re exhausted at the end of the day, and find you’re skipping the gym more often than not, consider a new exercise schedule.

Though it may seem like torture to wake up even earlier, going to the gym in the morning leaves you with fewer excuses and more energy for the day. Working out with a friend can help as well, since you’ll feel obligated to show up.

No Excuses

You have to be at work every day–why should the gym be any less of a commitment? Make sure to schedule the time and follow through. You’ll be glad you did when you start seeing the difference in your mood, energy levels, and physique. Always keep your ultimate goals in mind.

It doesn’t have to be a chore! Yoga, swimming, tennis, running–whatever you’d like. Find what works for you!
