I'll be the first to admit that I would rather sit my butt on the couch and read a book than go out for a run in the frosty winter air. I love to hike in the spring, summer and fall but the winter has me hibernating in my house day in and day out. 
I just starting a self-imposed exercise routine after a kick butt spin class had me positively glowing afterwards. I realized I had been missing that rush or exercise high all winter. 

As a doctor, I'm fully aware of the benefits of exercise but had every excuse under the sun why I didn't feel like working up a sweat every day. Does this sound familiar?? 

So my motivating statement this month is NO EXCUSES! I can't sit on the couch and expect my lung capacity to improve, my energy levels to rise and my tummy to get slimmer. Lets be honest here!! 

I took the first step today - I went for a run! It was slow as molasses and my lungs were ready to explode but it was a step (a baby step) in the right direction. 

My challenge to you - find your motivation...your "why" that will propel you forward when you feel like Netflixing all day/night! Get creative and have fun with it. If you need a little extra support, I'm always here to kick you in the butt!
