Too Tired To Exercise???

One of my biggest pet peeves is when I hear the phrase, " I'm too tired to workout".

"Too Tired" is not an excuse to skip your workout.
Rather than ditching your workout altogether and letting your fatigue feed on itself: alter the type of exercise you do or the amount of time you spend doing it.

I strongly believe that just a 15, 20, or 30+ minute workout, can turn a day that is lacking in drive, motivation and energy into one that is positively reinforcing and bursting with energy and excitement at the possibility of it all.

Just this short burst will not only blast calories, it will boost your metabloism and do wonders for your mood and confidence. And if you think it will interrupt your work, take into account that studies have shown that physical exertion will actually help stimulate brain activity and relieve stress.

So go ahead, step away from your desk or the TV for a bit and rejuvenate your body and your mind!

  1. I can be a witness to this... I'm always beyond exhausted on Mondays and once I went to a cycling class with Amanda. I left practically bouncing back to my apartment - full of energy. Now if I can only remember that logic this coming Monday...
