I’ve used all of these excuses in the past,and then some, but this is the new me and I say……

“No more excuses!” #JustDoIt

Day #17: Wednesday, Jan. 28, 2015

“The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can’t achieve it.”  Jordan Belfort

With nearly every fiber of my being I did not want to go to personal training today. First of all, I only got 3 hours of sleep…again. This same cycle of  working late, not going to bed until 2 or 3 a.m., and then staying up worrying and tossing and turning has become routine.

Second, I could not find any leggings or workout clothes because I have not done laundry all week.

Third, I was soooooo sore from last night’s boot camp…. like every part of me is sore: butt, hamstrings, quads, stomach, arms, etc.

So did I go? YES.Why? Because it is too easy to fall back into the making excuses routine. And because I had an appointment I needed to keep. Jess was great as always and worked around my soreness and she is a great therapist as well without even meaning to be. We talk and talk and the time just flies by! It’s a good thing.

It’s so important to surround yourself with encouraging, positive people when going through such a tremendous lifestyle change. Thankfully I know that I have found the right place.

Here’s what we did:

  • Sandbag squats
  • Ladder criss-cross
  • Tricep rings curls
  • Sled push

We did 45 seconds for each set, 3 reps, because I was to sore to do4.

My son is still home sick.My tooth is still sore. I am going through my own health issues but I won’t give up this time. I need to prove to myself that I can finish something that started. I can make a commitment and keep it. I can follow through. It’s all about self-discipline. And if I can do this then there is so much more I know that I can accomplish in life as well.

No more excuses.
