It's another dark, overcast morning here in the Chicago area. A severe weather warning notification is staring back at me from the tool bar on my computer. There will be no morning walk today.
These are the kinds of days when my motivation has to come from deep within and I'm really struggling right now to get up and go to the Y to exercise. I HATE exercising at the gym during the summer. I love getting outside for a brisk walk or occasional bike ride, feeling the sun on my face and dripping with sweat when I get back. It boosts my mood and my motivation to eat healthy food. But it looks like the weather isn't going to cooperate with me today so I'm forcing myself to get moving. I know I will feel great when I am finished so that is what is motivating me right now.
Hoping for better weather tomorrow!
