Progress! Not Procrastination!

And it’s definitely progress when you march determinedly to the DVD player, pop a disc in and start your workout without waffling.

No “Do I have enough time to do this workout now? I won’t be able to stretch after. Maybe I should try later instead.”

No “Is this really the workout I should do or might another one be better?” Then using your entire allotted workout time trying to decide which one would be the most beneficial/efficient/effective (read: easiest) and ultimately getting nothing done.

No “I haven’t eaten in the last little while. Not sure I’ve got the necessary fuel to do this now. Maybe I’ll wait ‘til I’ve had my next meal.”

No “I just ate not too long ago. Food might not be fully digested. Better give it a while longer.”

No “My high-impact bra is in the wash, and I can’t possibly do a cardio workout (even one that has a whole ten hops in it) with anything less than a maximum-support, no-holds-barred boulder suppressor.”

None of that. This week, I’ve been excited to do the workouts I did and disappointed when I couldn’t do a workout when I wanted to (due to significant soreness of one sort or another and my promise not to kill myself the first couple of weeks).

Anyway, point is, not making excuses to myself anymore!

Yea for Progress!

Down with the other P word. It no longer exists in my (workout) vocabulary.

    It's amazing how a person can talk herself OUT of doing what is good for her! Way to go for pushing past it! :-) :-)

    Yes! YAY FOR PROGRESS!!! emoticon

    Any activity or workout you do is better than doing nothing. And once you've started, it's amazing how far you can go.
