Get motivated in your fitness routine!


Getting motivated to exercise is one thing, but staying motivated in my workout is a whole other side to the battle. I found my mind wandering, or my pace slowing due to boredom. Music was a saving grace. Thank you Apple for the IPod! Because I love my music coming along with me, without the clunkiness of a Walkman.

But music seriously helps keep me moving. Whether I’m cycling, walking, lifting, or doing sit-ups, I match what I’m doing to the beat. It gives me a jolt of energy, something to pace myself against and strive with. It also makes the time pass smoother and faster. I can lose myself in the workout that way.

I encourage you to find something that’ll put some giddy-up in your stride. It makes exercise so much less painful, and leans it towards something almost fun. Give your fitness journey a soundtrack! An empowerment track that gets your feet moving and heart pumping.

Your life is beautiful, if Morgan Freeman was free to do a voiceover, you could star in a film celebrating you!
