Mind Games: 10 Tips for your Motivation Toolbox

It's sideways raining...again.  I'll go later...  I'll go tomorrow...  I don't want to go!

Been there?  Me too!  Yet people are often surprised to hear me even whisper about periods of low motivation let alone announce them to the world.  They expect me to shout rah rah rah from the rafters day in and day out.  And quite honestly, mostly I do;).  But I think it is important to share that I also feel the weight of inertia slowing down my mojo or even threatening to paralyze my body from time to time.  It has happened before.  It will happen again.  And it happens to everyone including me and you.

Workout Wednesday!

Hello Friends!
No gym?  No motivation? No problem?  Put your sneakers on, crank the tunes, clear a spot on your living room floor or head to the park.  Want to get stronger?  Leaner?  More toned?  Become a ninja? Do this workout this week!  Getterdone!

Warm up with 5-10 minutes of gradually increasing movement- walk, jog, stairs, dance in your house! Sub exercises for what you have- can't get outside for a run/walk?  Skip!  Dance!  Go up and down your stairs!  Don't have a pull up bar?  Get under your kitchen table and pull yourself up from the edges!  Or, do a back bridge on the floor, from your hands.  You've got options.  Not excuses.  Do the circuit 1- 3 times...1 for first timers, 2 for challengers and 3 for those looking to ramp it up to the next level!  That's it!  Done!
