5. Setting goals
To figure out what route she needed to take, Khloe met with her personal trainer, Gunnar Peterson, to establish what her end game was. Did she want to lose ten pounds? Achieve washboard abs? Thin out her face? While she did have those things in mind, that wasn't why she wanted to exercise. She wanted to have a healthier lifestyle all around, yet people still asked her what her deal was. "Around this time, someone said, 'Are you training for something?'" Khloe says. "And I said, 'Yes, I am. I'm training for LIFE!'"
6. Discovering how exercise affects other aspects of life
It's not always the number on the scale or the size of your jeans going down that determines your motivation to exercise. It's about your emotional state as well. "I feel a tremendous sense of relief as soon as I walk through those [gym] doors," Khloe reveals. "And after a few minutes of boxing or running on the treadmill, I can literally feel each brick of stress crumbling away." 7. Staying away from the scale "Losing weight was a pleasant side effect, not the goal," Khloe says. This is because she never saw herself as big to begin with. Because of this, she avoids scales, and doesn't even keep one in her house!
