It's always tough to stay motivated in the wintertime, especially in Wisconsin. The winter months can be brutal on workout routines. The days are dark, cold, and long, and the desire to get up and workout is really hard to find. Yet without exercise, your mind and body become restless and bothered. Thankfully, there are several things you can do to stay motivated and stave off the winter (and workout) blues. Here are a few to get you started...
Getting and staying fit is never easy. But then again, nothing in life worth having ever is. Life is full of challenges - some hard, some not so hard. The key is take every challenge head on, knowing that you're strong enough to get through to the other side. There undoubtedly will be days when you don't feel you can take anymore, that's natural. So when those days hit just take a break, take a breath, and come back with even more determination than ever before to be the strongest, healthiest person you know you can be!
We love this quote from Arthur Ashe, an inspiring African-American tennis player who had the drive and determination to go after his dreams. It's all too easy to look at someone who has already achieved their goals and success and think "there's no way I can get to where I want to be from where I am." But the truth of the matter is that all of these people started from somewhere. And that "somewhere" is probably not too far off from where you are today. So just do it! Walk the stairs instead of taking the elevator. Eat that apple instead of the bag of chips. Go to bed when you're tired instead of staying up for the end of the show. Regardless of what you might think, these baby steps are giant leaps when it comes to your physical, mental, and emotional health. So go ahead - start where you are, use what you have, and do what you can. You are so worth it!
