I encourage you to stay physically active doing something you love to do. Many people exercise because they have to, and oh how they dread it. Committing to an exercise program does take time and energy, and it is another responsibility. Therefore, there can be that feeling of, “oh I have to get my workout in,” as opposed to, “I cannot wait until my workout!”It is so important to find a workout program that you truly do love. Maybe you don’t love everything about it, and I’m sure for many of my 5:30 A. M. campers, it would be getting up at 5:00 A. M. Think of the things you do love about your workout. If you truly can’t find anything you love about it, then it may be time to find a workout regimen in which you can find enjoyment. There could be many things you love about it. You love the feeling of a good sweat, you love the sense of accomplishment you feel, you love the friends you have met. It could be so many things. I encourage you to really get in touch with the things you love about your workout, and focus in on those things. That will keep you motivated, and excited about working out. Finally, it is so true that working out and taking care of your mind, body, and spirit really is an act of self-love. So fall in love with your workout, and love yourself to a healthier and happier person. The more you take care of yourself and love yourself, the more you have to offer those at home, at work, and in your community.
