Repeat After Me: I AM A MACHINE!

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

Stop this very minute, and tell your brain something - you are a machine! You are a warrior! You are moving mountains. You are doing it. Keep going. You are on the verge of greatness. You are doing it. YOU CAN DO IT.

Do not give up. Do not pass go. Tell yourself you are a machine, and keep doing it.

Today, I fought with myself to get to the gym. My first day back from vacay with a sick hubby, no less. I am busy. I have a lot of stuff to do. I don't have time...blah blah blah.

I crushed my workout today. Fearful and all of climbing up on the table, lest I would break it, I did AB exercises for the first time in years. How did I feel? Honestly, I wanted to weep right then and there. It is mortifying to barely be able to get up on the table, lay down and try to lift your legs, and hard, did I mention that?

No weeping though. I pushed through, lifted as best as I could and thought one year from now will be different because I did not give up, and I pushed as hard as I could.
I made through to the other side, and when it came to getting off the table, I didn't think I was going to be able to get off it on my own, but I did. Way to stand up to the fat, Mick. Way to stand up for yourself.

It is hard going, but when the going gets tough, I get going. I am a machine. I am a warrior. I am going to keep changing and challenging myself until I get it right.

Stop telling yourself you can't Tell yourself YOU CAN, and then get moving!
