'Should I workout today?'
'It's been a long day...maybe I'll skip today and go tomorrow instead.'
'I just can't spare the time. I have that project due at work at the end of the week.'
I remember the endless litany of excuses I used to make to talk myself out of working out. Isn't it funny how I never worked as hard to talk myself INTO exercising!
But no more...I no longer have to make the decision to go workout.
Why do you ask...because....
Training is no longer a choice...it's a necessity!
My workouts have become that one moment of sanity...that one oasis...in my otherwise hectic day where I can temporarily step off the revolving sidewalk called the daily grind and exhale.
No one calling my name...asking me idiotic questions to which they already know the answer!
No traffic to fight...no pointless meetings ending without resolution or consensus.
Nobody wanting anything more from me than for me to bust my arse and give it my all.
When did this transformation occur...you got me! I have no idea. All I know is that one day I woke up, and that was the way it was.
Now if I don't workout, I'm out of sorts...moody...short-tempered
...a real bear too be around (that's me being kind...lol)! Exercising is as necessary to my existence as food, water and air are.
This is new to me...and will definitely take some getting used to!
