  • I had the same conversation with myself this morning and I lost the fight as I stayed in bed. Tomorrow, I vow to get out there and walk. My son has turned into an early riser, so I'm just going to put him in the stroller and get walking the neighborhood as soon as it's light out which is pretty early these days.

    Great article, I needed this motivation!
  • Just what I needed today to get up and MOVING.
  • AWESOME article and just the kick in the pants I needed today! THANK YOU!
  • This article is completely motivating... I will definitely share this with my team!

    Kudos to you for winning the fight each and every day... And thank you for this great reminder about the power of perseverance no matter the obstacles and challenges...
    I have my physical limitations, but reading something like this makes me hope and believe that anything is possible.

    Bravo!
  • Thank you so much for this article. I have had a couple weeks that I couldn't make myself get out of bed in the morning in time to exercise. Just this week I decided to "Just do it" and I am beginning to feel so much better, both physically and about myself. Thanks for the encouragement!

    Good article, but it made me hope all you super-early risers are getting to bed early as well!
  • Jason, great article. I have been getting up at 04:45 every weekdays for years !!! And to the demise of some I am so totally a morning person. Not only, after my training I am charged-up for my day (much less stress). Thanks !
  • Just do it! Is something that I have to tell myself throughout my whole workout. My mind is a hard thing to shut off and it seems that it is happy with the lazy side of things and is always trying to get out of the full workout..."it's too hot, your foot is starting to swell, you did good just coming out today...blah blah blah." Then, I here "I'm a SURVIVOR, I'm not gonna give up, 5 more minutes, you can do it." I wish that first guy would just go back to sleep, but I know that from all the other comments that I am not the only one with this struggle. Be strong and JUST DO IT!
  • ''You can excuse yourself out of anything if you keep listening to yourself long enough. ''

    Lol, SO true, esp when u gotta get up super early to get your exercise in. And the fight is real - this morning i lost it (but i tell myself it's for the greater good cuz i did get a 104min run in yesterday and i would only have slept 4 hours had i gone running this morning, but SEE - excuses!;);).

  • I started skimming this article, then actually read it and took it in. Especially the part about laying in a hospital bed wishing I would have taken care of myself. Wow...great article!!!
