Hi Everyone!

Getting motivated to workout today was a major challenge for me. I was exhausted, and didn’t feel like working out. Mentally I knew I would feel better once I got started, but getting to that point was difficult. 

My body has been adjusting to my new work schedule, which means leaving my house by 5:30 a.m. So how did I get motivated today? I mentally reminded myself how much better I would feel after I worked out, I created a “shorter” workout, I thought about how important it is to keep fitness at the forefront of my life (because I truly love it), and I had a small cup of coffee to give me a bit more energy. Oh yeah, I also brushed my teeth. Someone on facebook said that gets them energized for a workout, and interestingly enough I normally do that before working out anyway. I never really though about why before, but I thought I would share that tidbit in case it helps anyone else! 

I hope you enjoy the workout. I made sure to include plenty of full body exercises, but I also focused on twists today. Twists help detoxify your body, and if you have any food allergies or sensitivities, it can help relieve some of the symptoms. 

Tomorrow I am planning an interval workout, so be ready for a good one!
Melissa
