For the past week I’ve talked about a serious slump and self doubt and inspiration to face fear of failing. Yesterday morning I woke up a little more tired than usual and, thanks to the 12 Week Body Transformation workouts, more sore than I’ve been in a long time. So what did I do? I started rationalizing not working out.
I will do the workout tonight (no, you’re going to a football game to watch your daughter cheer).
I’m too sore (no, you’ll be more stiff and sore if I don’t move and loosen up my muscles and really, you’re not that sore).
I have things I need to do on the computer (those “things” are not your priority right now and will not move you toward your goal).
Then, I stopped the excuses. I can make a choice that 1. I will regret and 2. will not move me forward to reach my goals. Or I can make a choice that will be best for me physically and emotionally. I can make the choice to look past the excuses.
Every morning we wake up. Everyday we have a choice.
What will you choose today?
For the record, after this conversation in my head I got up, worked out, did a little computer stuff and ate breakfast. I know this was the right choice.
