Thur. Jan 24,2013: Today I’ll talk about feeling a little tired and not really wanting to go to the gym. It’s 4 am right now. I’m up pretty much this time everyday. I get going pretty easily because my body clock is so programmed. I get up this early on weekends also. I use this as my focus and evaluation time. This is what works for me.
I’m like anyone else though. Sometimes, I don’t want to work out. If I have worked out sufficently during the week…I might not, or I’ll just do a little something, or I’ll just do some light streteching. The point being… I always asses where I’m at for the week, what’s on tap for the weekend, etc. It’s is so engrained “inside” of me on taking care of my body – which directly is taking care of my health. Now, this did not just happen over night. Back in the day I did my share of fast food eating, adult beverage drinking etc. There was a time when “fun” was the focus. That being said, I understand when people struggle with commitment to working out and eating right. It’s much faster, and easier to stay in bed, get fast food, or take a pill to loose the weight. “EASY” never did get anyone anywhere!
My point from sharing a little bit about myself is to show you anyone can change. You just have to look “INSIDE” yourself and decide you want to take care of yourself. Doing things you don’t necessarily want to do, but need to do can be challenging. I truly believe I need to exercise most days of the week and make good food choices everyday of the week. It makes me strong, vibrant, energetic, and just plain feel good. It’s easy for me now. It’s a HABIT. It’s a no brainer. This is my hope for others. For those who find it hard to believe this is the way to a healthier longer life. It must come from “INSIDE”… if this article pertains to you…take a minute to get inside that head and ask yourself why you keep” CHOOSING” the “EASY” way? It is a choice you know?
Ok, enough for today. I’ll be doing a workout from earlier this week…I’ll lighten it up. Legs are tired today. Everyone Have a great day!
