Changing Your Mindset.....

Saturday, March 09, 2013

I was doing my strength training last night and as I was just beginning there was this little voice, ( I thought she was gone...but nooooo) that stated that she was just NOT strong enough tonight to do the whole workout, probably not even strong enough to do all the reps in each set! My reply was, "Hogwash!!" (word changed for the sake of the children), "You are EXACTLY as strong as you were two days ago, you just don't want to do this! And that does NOT matter!" I began, and finished the whole routine and had no more trouble doing it than I ever do. Some huffing, some puffing, but isn't that what it's all about?

Then this morning I was watching a commercial for a cleaning item that stated "Gives you back your time to do what you want!" Showing a gentleman lying on a couch and punching a remote. I don't know where it came from...yes I do....but I had a quick flash of "Why aren't they showing him hopping on a bicycle?!?" Booyah...

I love it. These things are becoming second nature. I hoped and prayed it would happen, didn't quite believe it could happen to me, but it did...IT. DID. And if it can happen to me, then there isn't anyone out there who can't reach that place where changing your mindset happens and you can't ever go back, even if you want to, which you won't.

How Cool Is That?!?

    Very cool that you had that reaction, and that you were able to jump over the hurdle of that negative little voice that tried to talk you out of your ST workout. Nice work!
