So I’m sitting here writing this and seriously debating whether or not I’m really going to go to the gym and do legs.
It’s super cold outside. I ate so bad over Thanksgiving and I’m already back down to the weight I was before the 5 days of eating anything and everything!
So why even bother? It’s just one workout. I’ll do it tomorrow. I’m wearing so many clothes right now. Truth is, I’m lying on my bed, under a blanket. I’m totally cozy and relaxed. I’ve already got a pretty wife, who likes the way I look.
My calves don’t seem to grow no matter what, and leg day sucks. I just got home from a hard day at work. My dog, BeanDip, is cuddled up next to me, all nice and peaceful. I’d have to get up, get changed, drive to the gym, walk through the freezing cold to get from my car to the gym. What a pain! Screw it! I’m just not feeling it.
…NO! I’ve got to go! But why? No seriously, I’m not in the mood. Why should I get up and go torture my legs at the gym?
……Because I have goals, damnit!
I’m not going to look the way I want to look by waiting until tomorrow.
Plus, I told myself I was going to lift 4 days a week, and I’m no quitter! As much as I don’t want to go right now, the me two hours from now is going to thank me for getting off my butt and getting after it.
The only way to achieve anything worth having, is to push yourself to do the hard things, even when you don’t feel like it.
Yeah, I’m probably not going to look any different when I get home, but I’m going to feel different. I’m going to feel like I just stepped up to the plate and did something productive. I kept a commitment to myself.
Every day I keep that commitment is one day closer to reaching my fitness goals.
I won’t bore you with what they are, but they sure aren’t going to happen by skipping leg day!
So now I’m sitting up, and finishing this post.
I’m going to get up, put on my gym clothes and go kick some butt at the gym!
I know that an hour from now I’ll be glad I did.
I did it. I’m home!
I went to the gym and killed it. I worked my legs hard! I really felt great once I got there. (I took my Nanohydr8 Shooter, so of course, my workout was awesome.)
So now I am sitting next to my wife, watching TV and I genuinely feel totally content about my day.
I overcame my urge to be lazy and just like every single time I have ever pushed myself to do something hard, I feel great about it.
So just make a commitment to yourself and do what you told yourself you were going to do. I promise, you will never regret it.
So get it done and you’ll always be glad you did!
