Have you ever felt the urge to skip a day, promise yourself you will workout later, but never do, or justify why you can’t workout today?
This morning I woke up around the time I would need to wake up to do my workout. Normally I have a workout partner who helps get me going in the morning and doesn’t let me give in to my thoughts of going back to sleep. But this morning, my workout partner was not here and my head was trying to convince the rest of me that I just wanted to go back to sleep. I even went so far as to reset my alarm clock for the time that I would need to wake up to get everyone to school. But there was this little voice in my head that kept saying things like, “Just do it. You’ll be glad you did.” and “If you don’t workout this morning, you will be even further behind on your workout schedule.” “You’ll have a better day if you workout.” “You’ll feel better.” The voice got louder and louder, and I started to remember what it felt like after I was finished with a workout. And finally the voice won. I turned off my alarm, but on my tennis shoes and completed my workout. And guess what, I do feel great, I’m so glad I did it, and I know I’m going to have a better day than I would have if I would have skipped my workout for another 45 minutes of sleep.
