I wish there was a way to save this article to my favorites, because it's one I would read over and over again.
Where I need to be careful is that there are times I legitimately need more rest, and (not* working out is the appropriate thing to do. I have CFS/Fibromyalgia and can easily become overtired. However, what I aim for is a planned day of rest, usually Fridays. When I know I have a scheduled "day off", I'm more likely to stay on track the other 6 days.
Wonderful blog! I fight the fight so often and rarely do I overcome as victorious as this, but as you said, JUST DO IT!! If I keep trying (no, not trying -- if I keep DOING!), I will succeed! Thanks for the reminder.
I wish you determination and luck; I need the same from you. What a great article--exactly what I needed today not just for my weight loss and exercise, but also for my business that I'm working on--I'll keep reading this. Thank You!
Awesome!! It felt as if you were looking into my head and watching the battle i fight everyday. The voice says EXACTLY the same thing to me. But if you are able to drown the voice with something more powerful, then thats the best thing to happen. Imagine you are a winner even before the day starts. Your day then continues on that high note...WOW.
Brilliant! You put the battle we all face so well - whether it's about that candy talking to you from the candy dish, the pillow when you have to get up or those voices in your head telling you that you'll never lose the weight...
Yes, every day is a battle - but we're all in this together.
Boy, this article found it's way to my email at just the right time. Coincidence? I think not. I work mornings, so I've been going to the pool in the afternoon. Sometimes I will wait for my husband if he gets home early enough. My pool membership is about to expire, and I'm trying to decide if I want to renew it. I got the one I have now at a special deal: only $60 for 3 months. Now it will cost $269 for 3 months.
I don't want to spend the money. My husband is telling me I should. I guess you said it best: Just do it! Thank you.
Trust me I know exactly what you are saying - I use the same excuses. I plan to get up at 5a.m. do 1 hour of devotion and then at 6a.m. do 1/2 hour exercise then get ready for work. This gets done on Monday and then the rest of the week I just tank. So I am going to take your encouragement and start next week. No let that be tomorrow (cheers).
