Motivation Monday: Lessons in spin class

I mentioned last week that I’m loving spin class lately (or studio cycle as it’s referred to on my gym schedule). I usually want to cry/puke at least once every time I go, but I also get an endorphin high like NO other. I think that’s what keeps me coming back for more. The calorie burn is so good and the dark room, big screens, pumped up instructor, and loud music make the class go by so fast!

it's a good dayLast week the instructor said something that really stuck with me. She was talking about enjoying now. Not waiting until the weekend or vacation or whatever. She said If you spend your days waiting for summer you miss out on some really beautiful rainstorms. And boy is she right. Lately I’ve been trying to soak up this beautiful summer that is right in front of me. The mountains are looking handsome this time of year, and having a view of them as I lay out at the pool at my gym is pure bliss. More and more I’ve been realizing that it’s the little things that really make life awesome- having my favorite lunch (chipotle burrito bowl), curling up with a book at night, sleeping with the window open and feeling the warm summer breeze…..it’s the simple things.

 

So even though today is Monday (the most dreadful day of the week),make it your mission to enjoy the little things today!
