YOU’RE NOT INSANE
How many times has your New Year’s resolution been to exercise regularly? If you’re like many of us, you lost count. What about all the springtime promises to yourself that you would be swimsuit ready by summer? These things don’t work but we keep trying them over and over, expecting a different result. I don’t think that makes us insane (Einstein didn’t really say that, but it’s incredibly wise!), but we are extremely well-intended. We look for fitness motivation in all the wrong places and can’t get traction. This website is dedicated to everyone who has ever said “I need to start exercising!”. Then you started, then stopped, repeatedly, year after year.

Maybe you’ve been inactive for a long time and haven’t even taken the first step. You might be getting moving but think “I could never be one of those ‘fit’ people“. Obstacles may keep popping up and it’s really hard to stay motivated. I’ve been in all those places.
Who am I?
My name is Susan Masterson, and I’m here to help move you from “I’m gonna” to “I’m still doing it!”. I’ve had a lifelong struggle with keeping myself moving regularly, so I get it. I focused my doctoral dissertation on how to get started, and stick with an exercise routine for the long-haul. I will bring you research-based ideas and what I’ve learned from my own experience to motivate you, help you keep at it, and thrive!
How should you use this website?
I will publish pages full of ideas, images, experiences, and my journey as I work to keep myself moving. I’ll share research I find about what works, and suggestions to build activity into your life so it becomes second nature. You will choose from posts to help you “Get Moving”, “Keep Going”, or you can read my pages about research I have found to give you some of the “why” for what’s here.
I will include supportive posts exclusively for subscribers tailored to where you are in the journey. These will help keep you focused and help you develop plans for getting yourself going and keeping at it. Subscribe to gain access to those exclusive posts!
What’s MY motivation?
I need to keep exercise at the forefront of my mind, and I love sharing what I’ve found. I want to partner with you while we keep our focus on how amazing it is to have activity keep us feeling our best and looking to the future with hope and confidence!
