5 Ways to Keep Yourself Motivated & Moving #MoveitMondays

You know when you wake up on a Monday, already feeling lethargic, and the last thing you want to do is go for a run, jump through a 30 minute workout video or move your body in any way shape or form? We’ve all been there. And to be honest some days or weeks I am there more than others. Laziness, excuses and lack of time get the best of me and all of the sudden I look back at my previous week and I only ran once (or not at all – oops). Some days my body does need a break but other times, especially as the cooler weather hits, hibernation sets in and I need to find new ways to stay motivated in order to keep myself moving as well as staying healthy, happy and in shape in preparation for the long winter months!

5 no-nonsense ways to keep yourself moving & motivated morning, noon and night!

  • Psych yourself up until you get yourself out the door, once you are out there and get into the groove of dancing/running/working out you are sure to run/walk/move further than you ever thought before!
  • Know that nobody ever regrets a workout. I mean when was the last time you heard someone say, “Oh, I totally regret going for that 30 minute jog this morning.” Or “I wish I didn’t dance my heart out last night.” Never. Because it never happened.
  • Know that after you get those happy, feel-good endorphins pumping you always feel 100% better after moving – And you will be ready to take on any challenges during the day!
  • Remember how far you’ve come, where you never want to return and know that with each step, move, jiggle-wiggle, or pump you are stronger than you were yesterday!
  • Set reasonable, achievable short & long terms goals but know that ultimately the only person you are competing against is yourself – becoming a healthier, stronger and happier you!

Running in Fall

I started this Monday out with an 11 km jog. And low and behold, it was the perfect positive way to start the week! One of the main reasons I love to get out and run? Watching the seasons change! I was so excited this morning when I noticed the leaves starting to change and the smell of the crisp autumn air.

Someday is not a day of the week
