I didn’t get enough sleep.
This bed is too warm.
I am too comfortable.
I will go tomorrow.
I will just eat really good today.
I will start again on the right foot next week.
No, I am not going, I am just simply too tired and I need that extra 20 minutes that I probably won’t even use to sleep…
All the excuses.
Not a damn one of them are anything good enough to keep me from getting my lazy butt up and getting to the gym.
I thought there for just a minute that they had my brain warped.
I must say I am glad that I got up.
I am glad that I made the decision to go because I know how much better I feel sitting here right now.
I feel happier.
I feel lighter.
I feel like I have way more energy.
I am not sad or upset with myself.
I am not depressed.
All those negative things I most likely would have experienced if I had not gotten up and went.
Look, I totally get it…
I have three girls, a husband, a house, and a full-time job.
I have friends whom I love dearly and a family that matters more to me than life itself.
I have responsibilities and obligations.
I have realized though that I cannot excel at any of those things if I don’t take care of myself, too.
One day at a time... Baby steps… But we are all capable of things we never realized.
What works for me may not work for you but there is a way to make it work and you just have to figure out your own personal journey.
