Motivational Monday!

So you're on your last mile of your run, or you're only ten minutes in and that little voice pops in your head..."This is hard! I'm too tired! Is it over yet? Let's just dog the rest of this." TRUST ME! Even after six years of workout out everyday...I still have moments where I just don't want to. EVERYONE, even the most fit athlete has those days where they just don't want to work out. There are millions of excuses to not workout, and anyone can probably come up with something that will justify skipping a session. You don't have time, you got to bed late last night and are too tired, I have been at work all day and I just want to relax, etc. Whenever you get into that mindset, just remember how great you feel after you've completed a workout. Those endorphins are pumping, you've pushed yourself to doing more and that sense accomplishment and success sits in. You've also burnt off your lunch and are a set closer to your goals than you were on the couch. You only find success when you pursue it or keep trying to achieve it. Even one extra rep, min, mile is a step closer to your goals and your own personal best. I don't care if you can only fit in 20 minutes of something today. You are 20 minutes closer to being as strong and successful at reaching your goals than someone who just doesn't try or gives up. There shouldn't be an excuse good enough to cheat you out of what you want in life and your goals. Once you've reached those goals, YOU get to take credit for your commitment and dedication (and hard work of course) to achieve your goals. DO NOT GIVE UP! I know it's the notoriously hated Monday and you've had a lovely weekend and it is a little bit harder to get back into the routine, but guess what??? You are worth it and you deserve it. Do NOT cheat yourself out of getting what you want. NOW GO GET IT! There, I'll get off my soap box.
