Minimize Yo Butt Guest Post – Minimal Exercise

Good Morning Guys!

Just wanted to let you all know that there’s a Guest Post I wrote over at Minimalist At Home. It includes my Top 5 Countdown to getting motivated and building momentum when starting to get into the running groove.

Motivation To Minimize Yo Butt With Minimal Exercise

 

It’s worth checking out just for the great photo of the running shoes – which put my well worn Saucony’s to shame!

Run Forest Run!

    A thoughtful and helpful post. It helps to know that even veteran exercisers run into motivation issues. I especially identify with the fourth one listed – be grateful that we can exercise. My father, who I’m very close to) is paralyzed on one side after a major stroke and he would give anything to be able to walk again. I’ve had a stage of feeling guilty if I exercise (because he no longer can), then moved into a stage of realizing he was able to get out when he was my age and it’s okay if I do it now too (but not often feeling like it due to fatigue, inertia, etc), but with your post I have been able to move into the stage of being thankful enough to just go do it. Thanks for this, Jo.

      Jo.H. – I’m so sorry to hear about your Dad’s ill health. It is so tough when your parents become ill or incapacitated. I know. Don’t feel guilty, I’m sure he would not want that. Make the most of what you have whilst you have it, it can be taken away in a breath! Take care Jo.W.
