The old me would have talked myself out of exercising for many reasons....tired, muscles ache, headache, had a hard day I deserve a day off, already exercised four days so missing one day will not hurt ....ect...
New me is stronger minded and when the old me tries to creep back the new me takes a moment to look back at my old pictures and then I think to myself...do you really want to go back to that person? When you broke the momentum, didn't you find more and more reasons not to work out the next day? When you sat on your bottom watching TV did it make you happy or did you feel better once you got off your bottom and did something physical to strengthen your body? Did that junk food really satisfy or happier when you chose not to eat the extra calories? Success is all about the choses we make...
When you see other people out being active, how does it make you feel? Yes, it takes a lot of effort but in the long run your mind is happier and your body is stronger...you can look at the results in the long run and feel that great satisfaction that comes with success.
I like the active me....I didn't like the lazy me.
My choice today is to like me and in order to like me...I have to follow through on my promises to myself....I promised to be a better person in all areas of my life and a healthy body is part of being a better person.
I want to help others but how can I help others if I can't help myself. The time is now...not tomorrow...for tomorrow may never come...we only have today and today I choose to be a better me!
