Oh snap! Did I just b*tch slap you this morning? I’m sorry. Actually, I’m not. It’s too easy to say “I can’t”. It’s too easy to say “I’ll start tomorrow” or “It’s too hard”, “I don’t need to change”, “I’ll do it later”, “I’m ok, I’m not overweight/unhealthy/out of shape…” Well, let me ask you this, do you make healthy food choices 80-90% of the time? Do you strive to be active at the very least 3 times a week? No? Yes? Well, if you answered no, then the only person you’re hurting is yourself (and those that are influenced by you…no pressure). If yes, then way to go! I’m virtually high fiving you right meow. (He he, inside joke). I know I post a lot of these kind of things but it’s because I know that in my personal experience, it’s what I need to get fired up. I don’t always want to get up early and do a bazillion squats (okay, not a bazillion but too damn many). I don’t always want to skip the pasta, burger with a bun, the cake, brownies, chips and dip, but I do (90% of the time) because I know that if I do the reward far out-weighs the brief satisfaction if I did eat it. It’s worth it to ME! And if I can make the CHOICE (because it’s always a choice, good or bad) to say “I can” then I know no matter how long it takes me, in the end, all the hard work, all the tough choices, will be worth it.
