She TRIED to sabotage me....but it didn't work!!!

When I refer to this "she" person, I am actually referring the evil person inside of me who tried to mess with my routine!! I've been really consistent about working out for the past 3 weeks, and I'm even getting to the point where I've been enjoying it.
The other night as I was getting ready to go to my boyfriend's, I thought about leaving my gym bag at home, since I would "most likely" be coming back home that night, so there was really no reason to bring it with me. And if I did stay over at his house...oh well, no big deal. Wait a second!!! Starting with the excuses already???? I had to shake my head and tell myself to knock it off. So I grabbed my gym bag, stuck it in the car, and was prepared to go the gym the next day NO MATTER WHAT!!
Then....as I'm on the bus heading to work (where my gym is) I thought "Uh oh...did I leave my office keys at home?" Normally not such a big deal, but I also have my locker key attached to those, and my workout shoes were in my locker. So even though I had my workout clothes with me, I didn't think I'd be able to workout without my shoes, so I was ready to give up the idea of exercise again that day! That evil devil inside of me was getting a little too in control.....then I looked at the shoes I was wearing and realized that although they weren't ideal for working out, they would certainly do for that day. And then I found my keys in my bag...so all excuses were gone again!!!!
It's SO easy to come up with reasons to not work out, but I'm fighting against them. And that is the best thing of all. Yes, it's great that I'm being consistent, but I feel even more excited that I WANT to work out. And instead of finding excuses, I'm trying to find ways to fit working out into my schedule. I'm starting to miss it on those few days where I don't get to the gym.
Could this be the time it sticks? Can I do it this time? I do believe in myself, and I do believe in my goals. Now I just need to get that evil lazy side of me to shut up!
