Well, spark has sparked a motivation in me...specifically this Kzoo team, and the idea of doing a 5k...even though I didn't make it for the turkey trot, I *did* do the downtown Kzoo Run in the Lights 5k, my first.
I've challenged myself to do the lose5% winter challenge, and doubly motivated, because it ends a week before my birthday in early Feb.
As to daily motivation, shoveling snow is actually something I look forward to as a way to help out my folks, *AND* get my work-out in when I might not be persuaded to go outside for it otherwise.
I may join a club again (used to go to SWAT in Oshtemo) and I'm going for a run right now, since it's sunny (doing 5k, by myself this time) and use stationary bike and do yoga and aerobics at home, some of it in front of tv...it gets old unless there's something funny on, then it's fun...I try and watch Stewart and Colbert while pedaling; was thinking about doing stair runs from basement to first floor, depending on how that works out, and adding some X-country skiing this weekend (La Nina means lotsa snow this winter)
I am trying to exercise twice a day, but mornings have mostly eluded me so far. I'm a total night owl, so when y'all said get up at 4:30...that's when I'm goin' to bed lately, though I need to change that (bad insomnia obviously, because I've been dislocated out of my room which had a window to one that doesn't, temporarily)
Thanks Kzoo sparkers for the personal, local touch; I might not have been so motivated without your posts! :)
There is no waste, only wasted resources.
