Motivation to Move
This is going to sound awful, but I have been contemplating working out for quite a while now. Last year, I took part in a series of gym bootcamps. It was challenging and fun but ultimately, I stopped. Now, after months of being relatively sedentary, I feel compelled to get moving. So, I spent some time on Saturday browsing the web for inspiration. I am usually inspired by dancers, models, atheletes….all those who can express themselves physically. So, I will share this goal with you in hopes that it will be additional motivation in breaking through my barrier to actual workout this week.
I am going to ……
- Walk up at least five flights of stairs everyday. My co-worker, John, asks me to walk the stairs with him everyday. Last year, a group of us were walking at least 15 flights everyday. John and I are starting all over again. Go Team!
- Get up from my chair at least once per hour – even when I am at home. Experts say that the amount of hours we sit is actually killing us! The damage starts with a drastic drop in our metabilism. There is a popular infographic that illustrates the entire process.
- MOVE!! MOVE!! MOVE!!
Here is an inspiring video of members of the Pacific Northwest Ballet Company practicing a variety of jumps. Look at those bodies move!
Have a wonderful week!
