  • I have been having a hard time finding motivation to work out during this quarantine! Thanks for the great tips.

    This is just what I needed to hear. Thanks for the tips- I am already feeling more motivated. Guess I’ll go ahead and get up to do this yoga video I’ve been putting off …

    Love these tips! I’ve done all, except listening to a podcast. Will definitely try it this week!

    • Thank you! Yeah podcasts have been a game changer for me, and didn’t think I would enjoy it but it’s been good – anything to take my mind off running! 😂

    I don’t know why it’s so hard to stay motivated to exercise right now, but I agree that when I do it first thing in the morning I feel great all day long! Looking forward to a yummy breakfast is a great idea!

  • Such a helpful post! Thank you for sharing!

    Nice Lucy, I like it. I am not at all a morning person and for years I fought exercising in the morning. But I finally gave in and tried it, and now I always do it . I think there’s a kind of hidden benefit to still being partially asleep, which is that I’m not awake enough to talk myself out of working out. I treat it like a job. Maybe I don’t want to go to my job in the morning, but I don’t wake up every morning and say, am I going to work today? Somehow exercising in the morning has the same effect for me. I don’t wake up and say do I feel like exercising or not, I just do it. I’m not sure why, but it works. Plus eafter my workout I feel so awake and ready to go!

    • I totally agree, when you exercise first thing it’s like your brain doesn’t catch up to what your body is doing until afterwards or something. And yes, the less time you have for your brain to convince you that you don’t need to do it the better – it’s all in the mental battle! Like you say, once it becomes a non-negotiable part of your day, like going to work, you just do it. I also love just being outside at 7am when the light is all hazy and it feels like the rest of the world isn’t up yet 😊

    WOW I swear I needed to read this. Thank you for your tip to do it as first thing in the morning and that’s what I am gonna do now. I have gained few extra pounds in the quarantine and I am gonna start working out now after reading your post.

    • Aw thanks so much, glad it popped up at a good time for you! I think we’ve all gained a few pounds from quarantine but working out is definitely helping to keep me feeling motivated and productive! All the best with your new routine 💪😊
