Morning Motivation 

This morning the alarm went off at 5:45 a.m., and I just laid in bed.  I didn’t want to get up, and thinking about walking- nope.  I haven’t been walking for the past week, and this morning I wasn’t “feeling” it.

I got my phone, and began the normal part of my morning routine of scrolling through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (still in bed).  One the the people I follow on Instagram, @onestepcloser_vsg, is weight loss poster.  Her journey is inspirational, and her post this morning was perfect:

Why work-out before work?  

  1. It’s often the most peaceful time of the day & a great way to get some alone time.
  2. It preps you for the day, waking up your brain, clears the mind & helps organize your thoughts.
  3. Gets in your exercise first thing & you won’t have to worry about it for the rest of the day.
  4. It boosts your metabolism & gets your digestion moving for the whole day.

All of these reasons were why I stared walking in the morning to begin with…to boost my day.  New habits, right?  So, this lazy butt feeling of a morning, I got up and walked.  I only walked for 20 minutes.  But I walked.  I thanked her as well for helping me get out of bed this morning!
