In brief: Set reasonable goals

You are halfway there just by asking this question.
Recognizing that you want to take action is an important first step. Start off slowly and don't get discouraged if it seems to take longer than you initially thought it would. Push your self mentally, but do not overdo it physically. An injury early in your workout regimen can create long-term issues. Good luck!
