I had barely taken a shower today and upon me came a feeling of disgust. I hadn't exercised today or yesterday for that matter. I could have told myself that "disgusted" was not a word I should be using, "I am trying as hard as I can" or "every second is a new opportunity" could have been a better phrase than "I feel disgusted". However, I allowed the word to rush through me and thought about what I could do that very instant to change the way I felt. In my mind I kept telling myself that I didn't want to exercise, tomorrow is another day, I can always do it tomorrow I kept telling myself. But what about the feeling I had? Would it go away until tomorrow? I decided that I had to do something to make myself feel better and positive talk can only motivate not do the work for you. I laced on my tennis shoes put on a workout video and worked out, 15 minutes I negotiated are better than 0. I did my workout and smiled, I did something to get rid of the negative feeling I was experiencing and turned that feeling into something positive.
