This is kind of a continuation post from yesterday where I was talking about being “on” or “off”…which are you? Did you use an excuse today to not complete something that needed to be done?
How many times do you say I couldn’t, I shouldn’t, I didn’t, or I won’t?? Notice what “word” is used there…NOT…a negative! Why do we keep negative thoughts in our heads which leads to excuses? Because it’s a habit and it’s easier than doing the hard things! So many people like to rationalize why they “can’t” do something when really it is because they don’t want to take action on something that is hard.
Today’s…heck this week’s workouts were HARD! But people still showed up and did them! It was 100 degrees INSIDE the gym earlier this week and people still showed up in the afternoon and got their workout in; that’s dedication! I know things come up, but don’t let a silly excuse or something that you’ve conjured up keep you from reaching your goals!
If you can’t make it to the gym, then do SOMETHING! Anything to get your heart rate up and burn some calories…Move Your Body! Do squats or push-ups during commercial breaks; go for a 15 minute walk when the sun goes down; get up 20 minutes earlier and get a walk or run in. Anything to have a “No Excuses” mentality! Having no excuses will help you get to that “on” mode a lot quicker!
Now it’s time for dinner…what’s on your plate this evening?? 🙂 Have a great weekend!
Work Hard, Eat Clean, Be Blessed!
