How to Beat the Winter Darkness

I am having a problem.
Long work days and short days means no time for running. And besides that I miss jazzercise because it starts at 5:15 which means that I have to leave work at 4:30. I don't feel like I can when we are really busy. Do you want to hear more whining?  I can go on and on why I can't exercise.

But here is what I can do?
  • I can wake up early and do an exercise video.
  • I can wake up early and use the elliptical while watching TV news.
  • I can wake up early and brave the dark and cold and run.
  • I can wake up early and work for awhile at home, then run when it turns light, and then either go into work or work from home.
  • I can walk downtown on lunchtime.
  • If I work from home, I can go for a run at lunchtime.
  • I can get to work early and leave at 4:30 for jazzercise and if I have to work at home later.
  • When I get home, I can use the elliptical while watching TV
  • If I can get home by 5, I can run for an hour before it gets too dark.
And of course there is the weekend. So there is lots of time to work out if I can just be creative. It is worth it. I just have to do it and not let the darkness of winter overtake me.

JUST DO IT! to borrow from Nike. Don't think about it and talk yourself out of it - just do it! Remember to smile and do a good deed for someone. Someone might do a good deed for you. Remember karma!
