DeterminationI woke up today to stormy weather. Thunder and lightening woke me up. Steve left the house to go to the gym this morning around 4:45am to train his first client, Corinne. When he arrived, there was no power. It was storming like a hurricane and completely pitch black for blocks. Did that stop them? Nope! Steve pulled out a flashlight and they trained in the dark.

So next time you think you have an excuse to skip your workout, remember you can do whatever you want if you want it bad enough. 9 times out of ten, it’s not about whether you can, it’s just whether you will.

You Can If You Will

How much time have you wasted contemplating something you know you should do?
How much time do we waste creating excuses to get out of what we need to do?
How many times have we spent more time thinking about doing something than actually doing the something?

We sure wast a LOT of time!

Listen, if you WANT to be fit, quit wanting and start working on being fit. Whether you can or not rarely is even a question. It’s just a matter of whether you WILL. As long as you make your workouts optional, you are allowing your success to be optional. Quit wasting precious time. Just show up!

  1. That is what I mean when I say dedication! Nice post!

  2. Another great post Bonnie! Although I rarely comment, I do read all of them and this one especially spoke to me because I have been seeing my workouts as optional since the comp. Love all your blogs and I draw inspiration from them! 🙂 Thank you!!!!

  3. Thanks for the inspiration. I am working on my fitness goals and your posts give me kick in the butt I need.

  4. Whenever I start to think about skipping a workout, I mentally convince myself that I can do at least 10 minutes. 9 times out of 10, I end up doing the whole workout. Sometimes you just have to fight through it.

  5. NO EXCUSES – EVER!! While it would be SOOOO nice to sleep in when it’s raining and gross outside, the feeling over wiping sweat off my face after an amazing work out is 10x better – And I always tell myself, hey, if I need a nap later – GO FOR IT – Oh the joys of working from home! Ah ha ha.
