I don't smoke because it causes cancer and that will kill me. I don't drink because it causes liver problems and car accidents and those will kill me. I don't drive without my seatbelt because that might kill me. When I crave a cookie or a shake, I tell myself that I "can't eat that because it will kill me." True or not, that one little phrase gives me just enough pause to stop, think and make a more healthy decision.
Whenever I don't feel like exercising I ask myself...."will this 20 to 30 minutes kill me?" The answer is "No...but if I don't lose this weight something will"....The reality of not being here for my family if I don't push myself is what makes me get up and push play everyday....
