woke up this morning feeling good, didn't have to work and the whole family was going to be around (no school day and husband has off). i got my but to the gym by 730, ran for 35 minutes and elliptical for 20. i felt so awesome after as i didn't have to think about getting myself there for the rest of the day. i've realized that i absolutely love being fit, i love the benefits after of feeling amazing and looking decent, but i still need to push myself to go most days. if i let myself, i'd make excuses not to go every single day. i have to be aware of this because i know how much of a trap it can be to get out of the loop of exercising. since i've joined our gym in april of 2010, i haven't been away for more than one week except for the few times i've struggled with a nasty respiratory infection or after minor surgery. i just have to remember to keep listening to the voice in my head telling me this is so important for right now, and for the rest of my (hopefully) long life. i have to yell at the voices that give me the excuses. you never know what tomorrow will bring, so live for today.
