I REFUSE to delay or postpone my workouts during this transition. Can't do it. Won't do it. I need it. I crave it.
I REFUSE to break my Minimum 8 Glasses of Water streak. If I don't have 8 by 5pm, I can tell the difference. I've been drinking 12-14 a day on average. Pissin' like a racehorse, but at least I know I'm hydrated :)
I REFUSE to let the unhealthy decisions of others tempt me back into my old ways. I am stronger than that. I am smarter than that.
I REFUSE to become stagnant. Personally. Professionally. Fitness-ally. Do you know how many people back home have said they want to hike with me?! Of course not, because I haven't told you, but YAY for in-person accountability partners!
I REFUSE to settle. For anything. Be it a job. A boy. An unhealthy meal. A negative person in my life. People always tell me I deserve better, in so many aspects. Guess what? I do! You should shoot for the stars. Even if you don't make it, you'll land among the clouds. I am worthy. We are worthy. Don't settle.
I REFUSE anything that won't help me succeed. Which is why I will never refuse to listen to advice and insights from my SparkleLovelies. Even if y'all say something that may not necessarily be what I want to hear, I know it comes from a place of understanding. A place of friendship. A place of love.
I REFUSE to leave you behind. I will not walk in front of you.
I REFUSE to be left behind. I will not follow you.
I REFUSE to be anything other than right here beside you, as we cheer each other to our goals. Rah-rah each others' accomplishments. I'm a huge 'WOOOOO!!'er (Just ask everyone I go to concerts and sporting events with, haha)
These are my Refusal Promises to me. And to you.
We're in this together. Let's git-r-done!!
