It’s Monday.

It’s raining.

Whatever you do, you keep (mysteriously) gaining weight.

You can’t decide what to do to workout.

You decide to do nothing.


You go for a walk. Just around the block. It turns into a run. It turns into a 30 minute walk/run.


This morning I just couldn’t. I tried meditating. I tried journaling. I even tried asking my husband’s advice (I was desperate.) I wasn’t just discouraged about my fitness. I was discouraged about everything. I tried to think, what did I do in the past that worked? I remembered that I shared my fitness challenges and successes with you (the 150 or so who follow me.) And, maybe that’s why it worked. So, here’s hoping it helps. Here’s hoping it maybe helps someone else.

Don’t give in. And don’t think about it too much. Just keep moving.
