No excuses....

Thursday, July 26, 2012

Anyone who knows me, knows that I dislike hard work and sweating. However, for the past few weeks I have been working out. I even push mowed my lawn (which is no small feat in 93 degree Louisiana heat). Instead of thinking about exercise as a hardship and trying to avoid it, I look forward to it. I stopped making excuses for why i couldn't work out. No time. No energy. No equipment. No space. Now I make NO excuses!

I have reached my calorie burning goal for the week, but that's not going to stop me. Exercise is such a stress reliever for me lately. It is 30 minutes of "me" time. Time that I am spending to make myself better, stronger, more fit, and happier.

SparkPeople definitely changed this girl's mind about exercising. I never expected to like working out. I am a changed woman! My thinking is clearer than its ever been. I am more focused on my goals. I also have confidence that I will reach my goals! The numbers speak for themselves. This month, I am minus 18 lbs!! One month....I can't wait to see myself in 6 months!

My new little chant while I am sweating and burning up those unwanted calories is no excuses, no excuses, no excuses- just results. I say it over and over and over in my head if I have too. And you know what? I now make no excuses.

    Such an awesome post! You must be so proud that you've overcome something you didn't enjoy that was standing in your way. Keep up the fantastic work (and the chanting, keep the chanting...haha)

    I think I will need to incorporate a bit of that chant into my days too! I know I was liking it when I was consistant. I can win the argument, Thanks for the great example!

    Exercise can give you a bit of "mind is turned off" time which is nice to have each day. You are gaining the benefit of exercise along with meditation.

    Make it a great day.
