As the upcoming months get colder and darker, we’re guessing you may need a little workout motivation. In this chatty podcast, Dimity, Sarah Bowen Shea, and Cathy Engstrom, the Train Like a Mother Club manager, run through a list—along with a few laughs—of how to overcome excuses and inertia.

The trio discuss:
—why the weather outside is never as frightful as it feels inside;
—how you need to be your own (organized) sports mom;
—the benefits of aiming for a B-/C+ workout; and
—how Taylor Swift’s Midnights might just keep you sweating for longer than you think.

Read Cathy’s workout motivation post.
