When I wake up the first thing I think about isn't the sunshine through my bedroom window or my appointments for the day. The very first thought that comes to my mind is, "Damn, another day I have to work out"........why is that?
I don't understand why I dread it and yet later on in the day as I am exercising it feels good and when I have finished I feel like I climbed a mountain and I am proud of myself. You would think that doing this everyday and seeing the results and knowing it makes me feel good would help me to think differently about it first thing each morning. Not the case....
I have adopted what I am doing as a lifestyle, not just a diet or moment in time thing so I just have to laugh at how the brain works and how, even after all of this time, my mind still wants to talk me out of working out and my mind still fights it.
I have news for you, dear mind of mine ......." I am not going to let you win this time. My spirit and determination are stronger than you are. You can get on board anytime and be a part of the solution or you can keep fighting it and you can keep losing."
