In search of motivation
By: Tiffany Vickers Davis, Cooking Light Assistant Test Kitchen Director
My mind has completely wrapped around my need for exercise. I know that I will sleep better. I notice many nights that I go to bed with a body that is still wanting to move around (likely because it stood around so much of the day). I know that my general disposition is loads better when I am exercising regularly because my mind slows down for some reason and I can relax a little more. I also know that I dread going “out” less because I look so much cuter in my clothes – even when I’m not at my goal weight. Lastly, it takes away my urge to throw water balloons at all the other healthy runners in my very outdoorsy neighborhood because I am one of them, not a sad wannabe.
So, all that said, I still don’t want to get off my duff today and do this. I have a haircut and dinner plans with my husband and I need to go to my rental condo and check on the heat that is on the blink. I am not sure where I will find the time. The struggle begins.
Readers, where do you find the motivation to Get Moving? How have you made exercise part of your routine?
