I went to an awesome spin class and I've been feeling GREAT since I've been exercising more regularly. I feel more alert and I can get through the day a lot better. Yesterday I went to a Zumba class that I thought was super-fun. I go through a little bit of a battle sometimes in the morning before I go to my classes. I'm not a morning person and I have a lot to do in the morning. Every morning a little voice in my head starts up saying, "Oh you're too tired to exercise this morning....there are too many things to do....you just won't make it in time...you have to feed the baby...hubby isn't feeling well.....blah, blah, blah". All of these thoughts running through my head are trying to talk me out of it, but all of sudden, I thought of this picture:
The first time I saw this picture I laughed so hard. I mean look at that little frog in his pink airplane. It's ridiculous and somehow cute at the same time. But back to what the little frog says: "No time to explain...just get in." When that picture popped into my head, I realized that's what I had to do. I had to stop explaining to myself why I couldn't do it this morning, I just had to get in. I had to grab my stuff, get my little boy dressed, stop fussing over my hair, and get in the car, then get into that class. And it worked!! I was so happy I was there this morning. And so when I start making up excuses and thinking I won't be able to make it to the gym, I will picture my little frog friend. I might not have a cute pink airplane, but I've got a cool mom mobile and I've gotta just jump in and go.
