This lovely lady leaping looks fabulous . . . . but that’s not all: she feels fabulous, too. Fitness leads to strength and beauty not only on the outside, but on the inside as well.
Your goals motivate you. So when you feel too lazy to go work out, think about not just a toned body, but an empowered mind and soul. Imagine feeling like you can do anything.
Bulky sweaters and ballooning pants do not look conducive to working out. Thank goodness today’s yoga pants and sports bras let you move. Reward yourself with new gym outfits from time to time. It’s a great motivator.
When your blades sail along the ice, you feel like you are flying. Ice skating hasn’t changed that much over the years. Once you get over the wobbles and gain confidence, there is nothing like it. Love these old images. Hope they inspire you to go to the rink or out on a lake if you are lucky enough to live near an outdoor skating venue. (Click on a pic to see larger image.)
Students and area children skate in the newly opened UConn Ice Rink in 1965. The rink was home to the ice hockey team. Only a boat-shaped roof protected skaters from the elements, and many fans (and former hockey team members) can remember blustery cold winds blowing through the structure. The old ice rink was demolished to make way for the Ice Arena that opened in 1998. [University Archives]
If you are going to make it through the day, you better pull on your positive pants first thing in the morning. Attitude is everything, especially when it comes to fitness. Plus, cool pants make you feel good.
Gym etiquette people, please.
Would you trust this pharmacist? Don’t get buzzed on drugs. Eat right. Work out. Get a natural buzz from fitness.
