|Good thing this photo is hazy. It's too early |
With spring on its way, I am reluctant to tell my body that the protection of our down-filled puffer jacket will soon be torn off for lighter, brighter and clingier materials. It's this season that reminds me that I haven't been keeping up with my active routine. I can point the blame to many factors like an overly busy schedule and a new irrational love for sea salt and pepper chips from my work's treat drawer, but blame is useless.
As per usual, Not A Model doesn't care if your scale is high or low. She cares about health, confidence and a clear mind. I find that when I'm more active, I'm happier and less focused on the "bad things." I also find that I'm more creative. This week's Not A Model mantra sums it up perfectly:
"Movement is a medicine for creating change in a person's physical, emotional, and mental states." Carol Welch
This morning, as per the hazy picture above, I started a new running routine with my friend Nisha. We woke up at 6:30 and hit the foggy city streets. I am also going to try and sign up for a race next month with another friend. I usually prefer to workout alone, but sometimes it's nice to have a friend to keep you motivated. I won't hit the snooze button if I know that someone is waiting for me.
So Not A Model asks, how are you staying active this spring? Write, tweet or Facebook me. I love to hear from you! xx
