So… I have a huge list of topics I want to cover here; but today, while doing by quad-dominant lifting day, I felt the urge to discuss something…
The love/hate relationship we sometimes have with exercise. I am a self-confessed fitness lover – I love to do it, read about it, talk about it and here I am writing about it! But some days I still dread it. What pulls me through? That amazing feeling of accomplishment.
So the alarm goes off at 4:45 am and I get it DONE! Before the kids get up and before the making lunches and getting ready for work begins. I am not super human and my willpower gets burnt out like everyone else, but its that joy and satisfaction I am chasing. I was NOT looking forward to this workout I had set for myself this morning – but I did it and felt AMAZING!
Taking the right step first thing in the morning, making that ‘healthy-for-me’choice sets me up for a full day of good choices and a full day of feeling satisfied, confident and accomplished!
It was 60 minutes of power and sweat and its done for another week! It takes consistency and commitment to fall in love with exercising you body but it is so worth it 🙂
And I do it because I LOVE my not because I hate it!!!
