Someday, I honestly want to say, "I MADE IT". "I MADE IT". I MADE IT...
It is easy to sit around and complain about how hard things are. It is easy to sit around and complain about not being able to do this, or not being able to do that. It is just easy to sit around! Where will that get you in the long run? Right back to where you started.
That is not why we are here on Spark. We are not here to sit around and end up right back at where we started. We are here to forge new lives for ourselves. We are here to be the person that we know we can be. We are here to be the person we have always wanted to be.
I am not talking about just the number on the scale. I am talking about a lifestyle. I am talking about real change! We all came here because we weren't happy with a number on a scale but we can leave here knowing that we have the tools and resources to be a healthier and happier person. We know we can be that person we want to be. We know that we have it within ourselves to say that "I MADE IT!"
Did you fall down yesterday? Did you slip up? So what? Why not start today? I want you to think to yourself right now, what am I going to do today to make myself better than yesterday? What am I going to do right now to take a step (even a baby one) in the direction to meet my goal no matter what it is?
This is me on Wednesday, May 22nd. This is what I looked like 5 minutes after my workout. It is hard to tell with the picture but I actually took that shirt off and rung it out! That is one thing I did yesterday to make myself better than the day before. That is one thing I did to get one step closer to my goal! That is what I did to get myself closer to saying, "I MADE IT!"
I'm not saying that you need to go do Insanity and you need to sweat until you can ring your shirt out. That is NOT what I am saying. What I am saying is that this thing takes work! This journey takes work! Nothing is handed to us, it takes WORK! So let's go out and earn it!
Go take a look in the mirror, and ask yourself, what can I do today, to get one step closer to you saying, "I MADE IT!"?
