Nobody is Motivated Every Day

I don’t know anyone who is overflowing with motivation every day.  There will surely be days that you have nothing, like your motivation tank had a leak and there is nothing left.  But “ Do you not know? Have you not heard?”

bible verse

 

Isaiah 40:28-31 says how even the youth grow tired but if we hope in the Lord He will renew our strength.  So if you have an empty tank and are feeling like you can’t make it through the week remember that God never grows tired and when our hope is in Him we will run and not grow weary!!!

This morning the treadmill seemed more like a torcher devise then fun.  Running outside to me has become pure heaven.  I have a perfect 3 mile loop around my house so it is the minimum I can go unless I turn around and come back.  When I was pregnant that loop took me an hour to walk.  After I had the baby I would run just until I was going to die and walk the rest.  One day I ran the entire 3 miles without stopping, I almost died, I couldn’t breath but it was such a huge accomplishment.  Today, I can run forever but in PA it is cold and dark at 5am so my running fix will only happen on a treadmill…yuck!  To make my treadmill workout a bit more exciting and a good sweat session I do this 20 minute routine.  You can do it on any cardio equipment and if you aren’t dying at the end you didn’t do it right.

Hope you have a spectacular day!
