Wow! I honestly can't believe I'm still doing this! Week 2 Day 2 of getting up at 5 am to work out. Something that was an impulsive thought filled with much self-doubt has turned into a successful routine.
The real test starts tomorrow. School starts tomorrow which means getting kids out the door in the morning. Which means I'm back to work.

My classes start next week which will be another test.
I think the biggest thing that keeps me going is not to think too much. Don't debate in my mind whether I want to do this. Don't complain. Don't feel that I have a choice.
In the words of Yoda, "Do. Or do not. There is no try."
This is my health. I'm not getting up at 5 am to impress anyone or to win any prize. I'm doing this to be healthy. I'm doing this so I'm around for my husband and children. I'm doing this for me!
If I turn off that 5 am alarm clock and go back to sleep, I can't say, "Well I tried. It's not my fault that 5 am is so early. I'm tiiiiiiiiiiired!"
I chose whether to get up or not. I do or do not.
I chose DO!
It takes a special kind of person to get up that early and work out. And I don't mean "special". As someone who does this too, I salute you.ReplyDelete
