So my sister sent me a message recently and said why I don’t write a blog about ‘get off your arse and do the exercise you know you need to do.’
How many of you can resonate with that statement. I know I certainly can, as one point in my life, I was like that. I knew I needed to get my butt up to do my workout but would procrastinate and just sit there or find something else to do.
Here is the thing with this statement. It says to ‘do the exercises you know you need to do.’
So it is not a matter of not knowing what to do, it is more to do with laziness. Apologizes if this has offended you in any way but let’s say it as it is, LAZINESS is holding you back, not, not knowing what to do.
We all have some idea of what to do when it comes to eating. We all know that fast food is not healthy. We all know that we need to exercise to stay healthy. We all know that we should be drinking water. We all know that the can of soda is not good for us. We all know that we are the ones holding ourselves back but are in denial.
I will say that again:
WE ARE HOLDING OURSELVES BACK!!!!
Yes including me…..
Let me be straight up here, you are not where you want to be with your fitness goals because of yourself. Nobody else but YOU!
No time to workout…..an EXCUSE.
Have to work late…..an EXCUSE.
It is hard….an EXCUSE.
I tried it before and it didn’t work….an EXCUSE.
My dog died….an EXCUSE.
All excuses. Every one of them.
Stop being in denial and take a hard honest look at yourself. Look within yourself and make an honest assessment of yourself.
It is time to own it and take control of your health and fitness
It is time to take action towards moving from where you are at your present state, and moving towards your desired state of ULTIMATE health and fitness.
It is time stop with the excuses and be that person you dream of being.
It is time to make that commitment to a fitter, healthier you.
You are capable of more than you think you can do. All that you need is within you. You just need to believe in yourself and take little steps every day to achieve your desired outcome.
Yes it will take hard work.
Yes it will take commitment.
Yes you will have to get down and dirty and sweat for it.
Yes is it not going to be easy.
Yes you will have to make some sacrifices.
Once you achieve your desired outcome, who is going to feel on top of the world.
Whose confidence is going to be sky high?
Who is going to feel a sense of accomplishment.
Who is going to feel better?
Who is going to look and feel sexy?
Who is going to walk around with much more confidence because of what they have achieved?
Yes YOU are…..
So my little sister and many other people out there, get comfortable being uncomfortable, because life begins at the end of your comfort zone.
Get up off your arse and get moving with your bad ass self.
Live with Courage.
