Pintrest steal

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

"Set your alarm for 6am. Donít groan when it goes off and pull the covers over your head, get up and start your day. Put on a baggy top and running shorts. Go downstairs and pour yourself a nice big glass of ice water. Cut up some fruit and mix it in with yogurt. Add some granola. Now go outside. Stretch for 10 minutes. Skip for 5 minutes. Jog for 10 minutes. Run for 10 minutes. Walk back. Lay out a towel on the ground and lie down on it. Do 50 crunches. Yes, they hurt, but they are 100% worth it. When youíre done, get in the shower. Use a nice smelling shampoo and matching conditioner. Shave your legs and wash your body. Exfoliate your face. Get out of the shower and let your hair air dry. Look in the mirror. Do you like what you see? If you do, good for you. Do this every day and you will continue to love yourself. If you donít like what you see, do this every day and pretty soon you will. Being lazy might feel good at the time, but being active feels better in the long run. How badly do you want it?"

    Loved this blog. I usually get up around mid-morning because I am a night owl, but I got up at 5am today and got my chicken and dumplings in the crock pot so I can see if we will be able to eat it tonight. YUM!

But when I do get up at 10 or something, I look at my fitness tracker until I guilt myself into getting of my butt and getting my 2-hour workout in. It makes a huge difference. And I worked out angry the other days and pushed myself really hard and I can still feel the muscles screaming at me.

Looks like another day where BioFreeze will be my hero!

Thanks for the early-morning motivation. I love the idea, just not sure I could do it that early and have any balance!!

    I'm not a morning person, but I completely agree with the sentiment! I did NOT want to hit the gym today, but I did. And can look myself in the eye and smile now.

    Thank you! This was just the kick in the butt I needed. I will be reading this every day until it becomes habit. I hope you don't mind me friending you. Again, thanks a bunch.
