Celebrate being single
Walking has always been my favorite way to de-stress and stay in shape. As much as I love this activity, on occasion it is hard to get going. I'm new in town and often lacking a workout buddy. Walking the loop in my apartment complex can become tedious...and quite boring at times. Yes, I'll remind myself that the weather is beautiful and many people up north are snowed in. This helps to change my perspective but sometimes it's not enough. So yesterday I came up with an idea. I was in another area doing my shopping and decided to find a local park. Fortunately, I keep a stash of workout clothes in my car and there are plenty of parks in the Tampa Bay area. So I headed to Crescent Lake Park which was within five minutes of where I was doing my shopping. Walking around the lake, seeing people outdoors with their kids, dogs, and kites absolutely invigorated me. Let's just say my forty minute walk turned into an hour and five minute walk because I didn't even stop to check the time. Next time your workout seems boring and mundane, tweak it a bit like I did...sometimes a simple change is all that is needed to get going again.
