Too cold to exercise outside? Don’t let that be an excuse to not get up and get moving inside!

It’s hard to stay motivated when it’s cold outside and you haven’t seen the sun for few days. Believe me – I know!  I’m not afraid to say that I’m a sucker for a good movie, my snuggly blanket and comfy couch on those cold winter nights.

Although there is nothing wrong in and of itself of those things (we all need a little downtime from time to time), I also realize balance is important. I tell myself that my snuggly blanket will be my reward AFTER I have completed my indoor workout. ;-)
