When was the last time you gave up on something? For me, it was almost this morning but in honesty it was yesterday. I was supposed to work out, just like all the other times, I was supposed to work out.
In my opinion, it is too easy to give up, it’s so inviting to just throw in the towel and go back to what you know how to do. In my case, that would be lazily walking around the house and convincing myself that it’s all the exercise I can manage for today.
And sometimes, just sometimes that may be true but far too often I could have gone a little more. Then the whole regret, depression, guilt, remorse cycle sets in and I am back to where I started.
So what made this morning Different?
I have decided that my health is my problem. Am I on the verge of dying because of my lack of exercise? No, not at all, but I want to be so much better. I want to be proud of myself in such a manner that I am able to hold my head up and yell to the heavens “YAHHHOOOO BAAABBBYYYY, YAHOO!!!”.
Before I am able to yell at the top of my lungs, I must first begin. I must discipline myself to keep going, even when I have no motivation. The lack of motivation will no longer be my excuse, nor will I procrastinate to the point where I am unable to fulfill my goals.
There are so many things in the world that I would love to do and grit is the answer. To be able to persevere even in the face of uncertainty can be life-changing.
So this is the start of a new journey, I will be incorporating more fitness things into my blog and balancing out the content like I previously wanted. I no longer want to do the things that I only want to do, now is the time to start going for the things I must do to move forward.
So please if you would like to, join me on my journey to Grit. For the next 30 days, I will be changing my eating habit, my exercise routine, and my mindset. I will push myself a little harder, stretch a little longer, and reach higher than I have in the past. Each week I will summarize what worked for me and what did not. I would love if you could join me, but if not. I hope you find encouragement in my journey.
I’ll post later today the goals for this week and what the journey will look like in regards to food, exercise, and mindset.
As always my friends, stay healthy, stay happy and keep moving forward.
