Just getting out and walking can calm your mind....if you don't think of it as a drudge. What works for me is just noticing as much as I can of what is around me. I am noticing everything instead of grinding through waiting to be done. There are times I do feel like that but it is usually when I have not had enough protein and do not have energy. Mental attitude makes such a huge difference in anything you do.
When you feel up to it, try taking the stairs two at a time. START SLOW! Once you are able to do it, that will tone up the booty quicker than anything!
I'll be here if you need a friend.
Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.
