Excuses.

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.
Determination. The mind is the most powerful force in your life. Take control and meet your goals!
