I either awaken to rain puddunking onto the roof outside my window - can be peaceful - or to the sqawk of birds - could be peaceful, but not always. I lie there, considering the many valid sounding reasons to stay put and not get up to work out. At least, they sound valid at that hour. When I give in to the temptation to skip it until later, I am haunted ALL DAY. I also find a direct correlation to my eating habits. It's like my body has adopted my mind's mentality of 'giveupitis'. But, when I push through the thoughts and find the reasons why I need this and I work my visualizations to see me fit, strong, thin, healthy, muscular, etc., then THAT is the motivation that rises me out from the comfort of the warmth beneath the covers. Also, those mornings of successful workouts correlate with a (mostly) daylong success rate of food choices. The power of intention works from the mind, the belief, and finally, action to support my goals. I wish everyone such success!
