That’s what my “almost 40-year-old” brain told me to do today… minutes later, that pesky “almost 40-year-old” brain of mine gave me 100 reasons not to get up and move.
I went to bed last night with the intention of getting up early, putting the kids on the bus for school, then heading straight to the gym. I was there yesterday. I had a great workout. The truth is, every time I go to the gym, I feel better. I’m happier, I feel more accomplished, and my body thanks me in so many ways.
I actually love the gym… once I get there. It’s the act of getting there that’s hard.
Each morning, I wake up intending to hit the gym. Then it happens, my brain goes into overdrive and gives me 100 reasons not to go. It’s so easy to find excuses not to work out… but those excuses are what got me here in the first place. They are why after years of taking care of myself, my body has gone to sh*t!
NO MORE EXCUSES
Don’t do what I did… I wanted to try to lose weight first… I claimed I didn’t have the time… I was too tired… I had every excuse in the book! Spare me the bullsh*t and simply do it! You’ll thank yourself for it. I do. Every time.
I did get to the gym again today. I had a fantastic workout. Now, as I sit and type this post while sipping a hot cup of tea, I feel good… very good.
I am excited to go again tomorrow… and yes, I do believe that I will find an excuse or 2 not to go, but like today, they won’t stop me.
By the way, since this “almost 40-year-old” body has had 2 kids, and lost the elasticity in her belly, I’ve decided to embark on a little challenge I found on one of my favorite websites, PopSugar.
It’s A 14-day Plank Challenge And I Am Starting It TODAY. Check out the infographic (thanks to PopSugar) below and take a peek at the article here. Join me, and start the challenge too! If it looks too daunting, remember, it’s just a challenge. All you have to do is try it. No expectations… no judgement… just you, a challenge, and another great way to Get Up And Move!
