Among tons of other excuses, the simple, basic, go-to excuse for me is today’s title. I just don’t want to get out of bed, I just don’t want to go to the gym, I just don’t want to go for a run. I have said all these things, and many more, since becoming an ‘active’ individual.
But you know what’s even louder than that voice?
The positive one cheering me on. The nice voice, calmly reminding me that working up a good sweat 5-6 days a week is healthy for me and will help me be a happier individual. The sweet voice telling me that I need to make the right decisions to help me become a better ME. And thank goodness the positive voice is louder than that belligerent voice – full of excuses and reasons to not do something that will benefit me greatly.
It hasn’t always been this way, of course, but it’s where I am now and I am grateful to be at this point. Last night, I wasn’t feeling up for the gym – but you know what? With my boyfriend as extra motivation atop my already renewed sense of excitement for working out, I got my whiney hiney up off the couch and worked up a killer sweat with this little circuit. 🙂
When that was complete, I headed over to the treadmills, but alas, they were all taken. Elliptical it was for me and guess what? I didn’t hate it. I was dripping when I finished and pleasantly surprised at that fact.
So to help me keep this positivity where it is, Mollie has tasked me with texting her everyday this week with one positive thing about my day – and it can be about anything. I’m loving her challenge to me and it’s helping me look for all the great things about my day – including my workouts! 🙂
Hooray for Wednesday!!
What’s the best excuse you’ve used to skip a task?
How many days a week do you workout?
What’s one positive thing that you have to share today? My boyfriend and I are officially flying to Seattle for vacation in early December!!!!!! But, more on that for a whole other post!!!!!!!! 🙂
