Fabulous has given me an opportunity to work on my morning activities to introduce exercise back into my routine.
Baby steps I must say. I am quite sure 10 – 15 minutes for 5 days a week won’t be that difficult. In fact, by the time your body gets used to it, you will eventually level up the intensity and duration of your exercise. At some point, you will realize that you are embracing a fit and healthy lifestyle.
The keys really are determination, will, and GRIT to start and the ability to sustain and integrate it as part of your lifestyle!
Let me know how else I could help or motivate you.

1. Remembering how I'll feel later in the day / tomorrow if I don't put the effort in right now.
2. By making exercise a morning routine, it removes the time I'd have while awake to psych myself out of doing it.
Deciding in bed the night before, which routine I'll do, having my shoes and clothes out and ready to go next to my bed, and so on.
3. By enjoying the activity itself. Exercise can be boring if that's all it is. But for me, it's a form of meditation. No one can bother me, and this time is 100% mine.
Easing into the routine sometimes helps process thoughts, sometimes it's a break from thoughts. Feeling into my body, the way the muscles are. Noticing what is tight, and what feels good.
- What workout do you do if you’re running short on time?
- I find the gym so so boring. I only would go with a buddy and now that’s no longer an option as I moved away. How do you make the gym interesting?
- What areas do you target for sets on each day?
- What is your pre-exercise routine?
- What’s the worst part of working out? Now what’s your favorite part?
- I need to do hip stretches
- What do you do to avoid getting bored with your exercise routine?
- What is the benefit of meditating every day for a short time? I don’t feel any change.
- Is it okay to eat breakfast after exercise?
- How do celebrate after you complete your morning routine? It just doesn’t feel natural to me.
