Our expert says:
I am very confient that you would achieve something if you started exercise. Firstly, though you are not overweight, your BMI is only 22, which means that you are right in the ideal range. Therefore, losing weight is not going to be as simple perhaps as it would be if you were overweight. So, it's good that your main goals are the toning and fitness.
As for the motivation that wanes, that is something that only you can really address. It just takes a commitment and perhaps realistic goal setting - you have to understand that the path to fitness is not 3 weeks long, it will take months, and so a slow start is vital. Even though it may mean that you see nothing for the first few weeks, it's much more beneficial in the long run.
IN terms of the actual practicalities, my advice is to check out the following website:http://www.health24.com/fitness/Getting_started/16-474-488,24069.asp
Here you will see a number of options for training programmes. My advice would be to choose the Shape up for Summer programme (the first or second one) and then go for that.
You may find that this is a very basic programme at the start, but that is fine, you can just skip ahead a few weeks, and then use the programme to set yourself goals - this way, hopefully, you will be able to stick it out longer.
Finally, the best piece of advice is that you must find someone to exercise with you - there's no better way to stay motivated and sustained, than to have a partner in training, who you can be motivated by.
