Why is it so hard to get back into the swing of things after a lazy day? While yesterday's ultimate day of rest was well-deserved and much needed, it's time to get things going again. Power is out thanks to storms at our house site, although somehow where we are currently staying (across the road) it's fine. But the weather is making me want to snuggle up on the couch with a good book and some hot chocolate--NOT work out and do work. I'm doing everything I can to get inspired, including eating this tropical bar as I drove through the rain earlier:
I was hoping it would mentally transport me to beautiful beaches like this one....
But after the snack was finished...it was still raining. BOO. It did, however, taste pretty amazing. Lots of coconut, which I love. I'll definitely get my hands on a few more of them soon.
The work part is happening slowly but surely, but the working out part....not so much. I decided to put together a list of workouts suitable for a rainy day:
-P90X Plyometrics Video
-Yoga videos at home
-Suck it up and run in the rain!
Can you believe I was telling myself I couldn't work out because it was raining? Such an excuse! So, I promise you all I will pick one of the above workouts (or, why not?--more than one!) to complete today. Still have a bit more work that needs to be finished before I tackle it, but it will get done.
Are you enjoying cooler weather where you are?
Storms here mean we got some much needed rain, and temps are in the 60s today--a huge change from normal and I'm enjoying bringing out my sweaters!
What is your "excuse" that you use too often, and how do you combat it?
I often say that I'm "tired"--when really I'm lazy. Of course, sometimes I need to take a break, and I do. But more often that not, I just don't want to get off the couch.
What is your favorite rainy-day workout?
I definitely prefer to stay indoors when it's raining a lot, and stick to workout videos or the treadmill if it's possible. Hopefully mine arrives soon!!
