Look at this incredibly sexy model:
Oh she is sooooo motivated to get out there and exercise! I'll bet she doesn't even sweat - she probably GLOWS!
Now look at this incredibly UNSEXY non-model:
She looks a mess, but she is COMMITTED! Yup - it is cold, raining, and miserable out today. And it's a run day for me. I had the old internal debate with myself about whether I was going to go for my scheduled run or stay in where it was dry and warm.
The devil on one shoulder gave me many, many perfectly understandable and acceptable reasons not to run. And the angel on the other shoulder calmly explained to me why I should run. I almost hit the bitch, especially since I have the FUCK-ITS after a really bad weigh in this morning.
But you can clearly see who won and guess what?
It's easy to get your ass out there when the weather is perfect and your mood is perfect and the timing works out and there's nothing else to do and the house is clean and the work is done. But how often does that happen? It's easy to make excuses - most of them are even right!
So, to what lengths are you willing to go to meet your goals? It's all about forgetting the RIGHTNOW that so many of us - including me - are good at and focusing on the WHAT ABOUT TOMORROW?
I thought about that last Friday as I was running past Dunkin' Donuts and knew that they were giving away free donuts for National Donut Day. I was thinking how good a donut would taste. And then I was thinking how I would feel the rest of the day - after the donut was gone. And I kept moving.
But I'm telling you - the scale BETTER be nicer to me tomorrow, DAMN IT!! :))))
