No one ever said.....

"No one ever said, 'I wish I hadn't exercised, today'."
I just finished listening to the audiobook version of Women, Food, and God. While it wasn't a book that I was totally excited about after listening to, or that I thought would change my life, this one quote rang quite true for me. It was a mini AHA moment. I decided to think of it whenever I have trouble getting motivated to work out. I started this weight loss journey a couple of months ago and rarely missed a workout. As so often happens with me, my interest or motivation starts to fade after about 15 lbs lost. I'm not really sure why. But, I do know this, it's gotten much tougher to get myself going, physically. So tonight, I remembered this quote, and I told myself to get OVER the wanting to be lazy because I will regret it if I don't get my exercise in. As it turns out, I was able to do my workout a little bit longer than normal this evening, and I think it may have had a little to do with the quote! I think that the book actually did have a bigger impact on me than I had thought.
