Ep052: Find What Works for You

With the changing of the seasons, I knew I was going to have to eventually change from my outdoor running program to indoor workout DVDs.

Most years, I resist the inevitable and allow myself to delay plans, as I keep hoping for that sunny, mild day, when I can go for a 2 or 3 miles walk around the neighborhood. After two or three weeks, though, I finally accept the reality, that my running season is over.

This year, I didn’t allow myself that “grace” period. After one nuisance snowstorm that left the roads and sidewalks icy, and a weather forecast of low temps and high winds, I knew it was time to make the switch.

In this episode, I talk about a fitness instructor that inspires and motivates me to exercise. I also talk about why her style is not suitable for everyone AND encourage YOU to learn what works for you, and then let it work for you!

Enjoy!



Show Notes:

I talked about Leslie Sansone’s Walk at Home collection of fitness DVDs. Learn more at: http://walkathome.com/

I found a free 1-mile walk on YouTube here: 1 Mile Happy Walk


Is there something that works for you, but that other people sometimes scoff at or try to minimize its value? I’d love to know about it. Share it in the comments.


Each week I share another (hopefully) inspirational message to encourage and support you. If you’d like me to e-mail you a reminder when a new episode is published (every Tuesday morning), just fill in your name and e-mail below. I’ll take care of the rest.

Become More Physically Active

Did you resolve to be more physically active way back in January?

Do you see the end of this year coming so quickly and think, “Yeah, I did about as well as I did in 2016… and 2015?”

It’s not too late!

There is STILL time to become more physically active in 2017!

AND because you are committed to increasing your daily level of physical activity, I’m going to throw in a couple of bonuses to stay on track.

How to Stay Healthier Thru the Holidays

How to stay healthier thru the holiday

Overindulging… that is something that many of us do over the holiday season.

We forget that Thanksgiving is just one day, and we allow ourselves to feast for four or five days. Yikes! No wonder so many people gain weight these last weeks of the year.

Today I went live on my Donna Doyon Facebook page with 5 tips to keep you from hating yourself on January 1st.
