4/16/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Friday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 17. April 2013 14:39

I was riding my bike this morning and I felt compelled to remind all of you to take a moment out of your day and really appreciate all the colors and the wonders of spring when your out and about.  It is not a favorite time if you have allergies, but the greens seem greener.  The flowers are lovely, and everyone seems happier just to be outdoors. 

When I work out during the cold and wet, I do it in my basement.  Luckily I have the opportunity to cover my walls in pictures of my kids and my friends. They keep me company when I workout.  But, to be outside is wonderful.  I can do cardio for longer when distracted by a change of scenery, or talking with a friend  or holding hands with my love.

So, take a moment.  Even if you live in the city, close your eyes and try to find the song of the birds, or the pink of a flower.  Appreciate that you can workout. Love life!
