What's Inspiring for January 2015

It's January and the minus 30 temps. have arrived. It's when you ask your self WHY...why did you move from a tropical country to a cold country? 
And you moan and feel sorry for yourself, until...wait a minute, you remind yourself that Spring is just around the corner, and flowers and green grass will soon appear.

 And you start leafing through Tropical Vacay magazines, dreaming about the beach.Will it be Mexico, Punta Cana, Jamaica or maybe Costa Rica?

And then the thought hits you, beach, swimsuits, all those chocolates you got as presents at Christmas...time to start planning a workout space in your home. After all, you don't want to be wandering the beach with a giant cover-up from head to ankle, like a Hawaiian mumu thingamajig.

For those of you who are renovating in order to create a work-out space, here are some tips from Houzz.com. 

If you are like me, and you started trying to create a work out space months ago, don't despair. Baby steps. You will get there eventually. 

 It is especially difficult to get motivated to exercise when it's 30 below outside, and 6pm feels like 10 pm. This is Lake Superior in all her icy glory.

 So much easier to go for a walk in the Summertime after supper.

 Yumm. homemade Blueberry Muffins. Promise yourself a healthy snack after working out.

What is inspiring you this January...and what room are you working on in your Home?
