I do feel more motivated in the spring, but not because I'm worried about fitting in my summer clothes. It is more because seeing the sun gives me lots of energy and I really enjoy walking in the sunshine. I am much more likely to be walking in the summer. It is all too easy to get in the car when its pouring with rain outside.

I don't know about exercise, but it was definitely great to walk outside and not slip on the ice.

For sure I am more motivated to exercise in Spring. The beautiful flowers that are blooming, budding trees, birds and other items of nature that are coming alive make it inviting to go for long walks. The sun and warm days give me energy.Thinking about the summer clothing that doesn't hide as many calorie blunders as do the winter clothes makes me realize that I NEEd to exercise! I enjoy yard work which of course is exercise. There are just so many reasons to exericse in the spring!

LOL--- I think about it all year long-- More so in the Summer.. But yes Spring time gives me the itch! My daughter and I got out our bikes and have been on 3 bike rides-- In between the snow- : ) we walk outside-- We played softball today- It was near 70 here! Felt like heaven after all the snow storms lately. I agree though-- My daughter is asking to wear shorts tomorrow-- I said go see if any fit from last year- LOL.. so she said Mom I think we better go for a walk! : ) I love Spring

Spring motivates me to exercise. Thinking of shorts and bikinis. Starting yesterday, I became a fan of fitTV. And just from yesterday, my butt hurts and so do my abs. But, again this morning, I had it on again. I haven't regularly watched TV for years, but I think this will at least give me a reason to turn on the TV.

I'm more motivated to spend more time outside, not necesarily exercise. Although I do plan on exercising more.
