The Groundhog was so wrong

This Weather Is Killing My Fitness Motivation

Can you believe it’s April already!  I know it doesn’t feel like it, but it is spring.  We had 6 inches of snow last week in Toronto.  Yes, I know other parts of North America are dealing with the same thing.  That groundhog was so wrong.  I’m not listening to him anymore.  Can I blame him for my lack of fitness motivation?!

It’s springtime!

This weather is killing my fitness motivation! It’s hard for me to get motivated when the weather is like this, but before you know it, it will be hot and I’ll be regretting my procrastination.

Last week I started to get back on track with some Yoga.  It felt good to do a little something.  If I want to get more toned, I have to start weight training and cardio.  My favorite form of cardio is walking.  I did a lot of that on my vacation and I wrote about it last week.  The post is here.

I want to get outside more now.  My body is craving it.  I did look at the weather forecast for the next couple of weeks and it looks promising.

Fitness motivation

I’m drinking my protein shakes again.  I made a really delicious one with pears, peaches, strawberries and banana.  The protein powder I used is one of my favorites.  You can read a review of it here.  I also love using cashew milk in my smoothies.  It adds a creaminess to it without a lot of calories.  I reviewed one brand of cashew milk here.

I’m just taking it one day at a time.  I have a couple of events I want to look good for.  The first one is the Duran Duran concert in July.  The second one is my high school reunion in August.

Time’s a wastin’!  Let’s get moving!

Is the “spring” weather getting you down?! How are you staying motivated with your fitness routine?!  Please share in the comments section below!

  1. You have a lot more to gripe about than I do. We have chilly weather here in NC, but it’s the combination of the wind and the awful pollen that keep me hibernating! I hope it thaws for you soon!

    1. Sometimes I just want to dance. It can be a great workout. I love cardio, it’s a challenge for me to do strength training.

  2. Just about anything can kill my fitness motivation, haha! But seriously, recently it was a bad sinus and ear infection combo that made me sluggish. That was last week but now I have no more excuses. The antibiotics have taken away my right to remain lazy and ignore my step count. Thanks Kelly, and hope you get motivated sooner than later! 🙂

    1. Sometimes I think social media is killing my fitness routine. I get too caught up in Twitter and Instagram!
