Am I losing the fire already?

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

When I got up this mourning I did want to go down into the basement and get on my treadmill. I thought Wow what's happening? What happened to the fire? So I made myself get up and signed on to SP thinking I'll find something there that will fire me up. Nope not much going on there at the time. So I went back to bed.

Now lying in bed I'm thinking I can't really go back to sleep. What are my choices? Only I can chose what I do next. Got up put my shorts on and headed down stairs. I had set a goal on Jan. 3rd that I would w/o 6 days a week. Because I had made this choice in advance I knew what had to be done. Got myself on the treadmill. After 1 min. of walking I was feeling the fire. Wondering why I even want to stay in bed.

Last week the number one trait I felt I needed to develop that would help me reach my goals was Optimism. I needed to be excited about what I could accomplish in 20ll. This week I decided I needed I to have a strong desire to stay motivated enough to reach my expectation that I have for the coming year. I am the tender of my fire of my desire. I have to want it bad enough that I can over come my fears. Focusing on success rather than failure. Success has to become my dominant Desire.

So this week is about building that desire. How can I make It strong. How can I make it totally dominant. How to stay optimistic and become more so.

    I tell myself I only have to do it for 10 minutes. Then I can stop and go back to bed or do whatever I want. Rarely do I feel that I can't even muster up the energy for 10 minutes. Then, as you point out, I usually feel the fire and end up doing more than that!

Good for you for doing it!

    Well, know that you are not alone, we all feel that way. You have to think about how great you feel during and after a workout and just do it(ala Nike).
You can change your life!
Plus, think about how lucky you are to have your own treadmill at home :)
