Running on those Rainy Days

We all know how it is: you get up in the morning and say “I will workout today,” and then take a look out the window. It’s cloudy, gray, possibly cold and most likely miserable. What a great excuse for you to stay in bed and cuddle up with your comforter/ significant other/ cat, munching on feel-good treats and watching TV.

STOP. Thinking this way is going to get you nowhere. You have two choices: make EXCUSES or make PROGRESS. And instead of spending an hour watching an episode of your favorite show (which goes by quickly, right?) you can be on a treadmill. The thought of getting out of the house may seem daunting, but once you are at the gym or outside in your exercise gear, you will feel much better. And by the time you’re done with your workout, you’ll be thanking yourself! I often tell myself “I wish I could extract the after-workout feeling and inject it when I’m feeling lazy to remember how it feels” – I’m kind of weird, but it’s the thought that counts!

This short motivational rant was inspired by Runstreet’s Getting out the Door to Run  and the horrible weather outside my window right now 😦 


About The Muffin Top Cop

A health freak college student; what an oxymoron, right? Journalism major, 19 years young. I'm into food (of the healthy variety), fashion and living fit. I'm known in my family as the 'food police' - that pretty much sums me up!
