I find that when I am feeling a little down or not wanting to exercise, I take a few minutes and think of myself. I'm not being selfish, but in a way I am. I need to take care of ME in order to take care of others. I think of how far I have come and what it has taken me to get here. Then I think . . Do I really want to go back to the way I was?
