The Empty Lot:
Often the reason people start working out is because they feel like they are “supposed to.” But those who make exercise a consistent part of their life soon find out that we exercise for the process, and not always the results. Do you come only for the result of the goal you have set for yourself? Or do you come to the gym every day because it makes you feel better, accomplished, and in control?
I have some big hairy audacious exercise goals for next summer. Those goals will make it easier to be consistent despite cold temps and snow on the ground in the coming months. But those winter workouts will be filled with dreams of epic summer rides, beautiful runs, and achieving race PRs.
Find your own empty lot, something that inspires you to get out of bed every morning and live each day as a chance for better. What inspires you? What excites you? Find your passion in what inspires you the most and your eyes will see brighter color, your heart will beat stronger and your soul will be well nourished and happy.
