Friday Fit Tip – Do What You ENJOY

I get it — not everyone enjoys working out. And I think that’s mostly because people aren’t doing what brings them JOY, what lifts their MOOD, what they have FUN doing. Like for me, I don’t enjoy cardio, so unless my specific program calls for it, I don’t do much of it, haha.

A big misconception about getting into shape is that looking better on the outside is the best part, but it’s not! Of course getting fit and being healthy are important and huge motivators, but in my experience, mood and energy changes are the most immediate and gratifying part of getting into shape.

Being in shape helps you in every aspect of your life — it helps you sleep better, boosts your energy throughout the day, and puts you in a better mood. Endorphins are awesome!

Bottom line is, you can do whatever fitness activity brings you joy – the more you enjoy it, the more apt you are to stick with it and give it your all. You are not chained to something you don’t enjoy, and the whole point of exercising is to feel GOOD, not to feel DREAD!

Happy 4th of July!

America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand. Harry S Truman

Be careful in your celebrations today! Remember what this country is all about, and do your part to uphold that! Live a little, enjoy some BBQ, watch some fireworks shoot off (from a safe distance) and just celebrate the day for what it is – the birth of this nation’s independence 🙂
