Struggling to find the motivation to work out today? We’ve all been there. Feeling exhausted when that alarm goes off. The only thing you want is to crawl back under the covers and snooze away until you inevitably are forced to wake up to make it to work on time. Fitness is the last thing on your mind, and all of the good intentions of the night before are replaced with thoughts that “just 5 more minutes” will leave you refreshed.
Blair Morrison has some words of advice for times like this on his blog Anywhere Fit:
“Remember this: Fitness doesn’t start Monday. Or any other day for that matter. It started the day you were born and will continue until the day you die. It’s an accumulation of moments and choices that require your constant vigilance and attention. Whether you live a life wrought with disease, discomfort, and immobility or one full of opportunity, strength, and vitality are direct products of these moments and choices. Don’t believe me? Keep eating sandwiches on wheat and hitting the snooze the next thirty years and tell me how you feel.Maybe you’ll re-consider your options and knock the dust off that stack of hoodies.”
