Blogging Up a Sweat

 

the-sartorialistBlogging fatigue can be much like workout fatigue, and keeping motivated is key. Fortunately there is a whole virtual world of motivation out there just waiting to be read and interacted with. For me, sometimes all I need to push forward are some encouraging words from a far-off, no-name stranger.

Recently, I’ve found myself in both predicaments at once, and I’ve found assistance with both through this magical thing we call the Internet. I’ve found an inspirational blog in The Sartorialist, which reminds me that simplicity is a wonderful thing, and a truly motivational fitness community in The Shredheads, which keeps me going on days I couldn’t care less.

For those of you who could use a little inspiration yourself, check out these links:

The Sartorialist

When caught in a state of apathy and immovability, sometimes all one needs to do is step back and let others, even strangers, help guide you back to where you need to be. The important thing for me to remember is that no matter how long I’m “off the wagon,” I can always get back to where I want to be, whether that’s sticking to my blogging routine or getting back to the gym. I know, in the end, I’ll feel better if I just do it.
