There's a song by the rock band Incubus titled 'Make Yourself.' It's been a while since I've listened to it, but it ran through my head as I was lying in bed this morning. I don't even know if the lyrics are motivating, but it's the title that made me pause.
I did NOT want to get out of bed this morning. I don't sleep well on most nights, and I knew that I need to go to bed early tonight, as I have to get up around 4:30am on Monday, so that added to almost instant stress when I first woke up.
I stretched in bed and thought about those two words again; make yourself. Okay self, lets get up then! I did, and fed and watered the cat. Well, I'm up now, and I even turned a light on (it was 5:30am at this point). I can do my mini-challenge exercises then, they don't take long!
I made myself turn on my computer so that I could pop in the SC Cardio Blast DVD (I've been afraid to try it). I can do the first part, can't I? I made myself do it!
Wow, I've done my 10 minutes today, plus a little extra, and I'm can feel accomplished; it's not even 6:30 am! I made myself do something, and it wasn't as hard to do it as even a few days ago. I think that's progress. Now, if only I can make myself do the laundry...
I think I'll go listen to that song!
Have a great day everyone!
