Today was the first day of summer vacation for me. To celebrate, I slept in late and laid around the house all day. I told myself I would go to the gym at noon, but I didn't. Then I said I would go at 3pm, I still didn't go. I finally got up and walked to the gym at about 5:30. Better late than never right? I figured since i was walking to and from the gym I could do about 20 minutes of cardio then go home and get back in bed.
About 12 minutes into my workout, this song "move", by a rapper whose name I can't recall, came on. The chorus goes: move if you wanna, if you wanna, if you wanna move.
So i did, moved right through my 20 minutes. I continued on past 30 then past 45. I finally stopped moving after 60 minutes on the elliptical. The thing about this song is I don't particularly like it. My sister put it on my ipod and I liked the beat so I kept it. It just happened to be exactly what I needed to hear. There's a line in the song that goes something like " your promise turns to probably and your probably turns to sorry". I don't want the promises I made to myself to turn into probably or maybe one day or hopefully someday and then eventually into sorry, i just couldn't do it. So now when this song comes on, instead of skipping it as I usually do, I'll let it play and remember the promises I've made and the goals I've set. And then I'll move...because I wanna.
