This is exactly what I did this morning!!! My alarm went off at 6am this morning. I turned it off and rolled over and the battle withing my head began. I can't start back into the weight lifting routine 4 days before my big race, so what the heck is the point of going to the gym if I am not going to work out? I could just lay in bed and get some rest. OR I could take a nice relaxing jog to the gym, get in a really good stretch, and jog back home, all for the sake of routine. OH, but it is raining outside, do I really want to run in the rain? IF I give up now, the second day in, its going to be soooooo much easier to give up another day!! So what did I do? I SUCKED IT UP! I went to the gym, I stretched, did some feather weight lifting just to get my body moving and I ran home. What a fantastic way to start the day!!
I am making a lifestyle change here. I often struggle with the motivation to do it, and I often lose it, but I am somehow getting it back. I will make this a part of my lifestyle. I will make this a habit!!
Suck it Up!!
