You Body Can’t Afford to Wait On Your Mind
How often do you hear people say “I’m just not motivated” or “I just don’t feel like it”. Listen, if we always did what we felt like doing, we probably wouldn’t get very far in life. We’d never keep a job. We’d probably have a hard time keeping a boyfriend, much less a husband. Think of all the important events we wouldn’t go to, that we should have – just because we “didn’t feel like it”. Think of the things we’d say that should never come out of our mouth. Seriously, think of the friends we’d lose! Doing what our body WANTS to do is rarely a good thing – and while we use some control in many parts of our lives, we treat our body differently and break all the rules.
When it comes to workouts, I rarely want to do it – but, like many other things in life, I do what I need to do whether I feel like it or not because it’s the right thing to do. Why should I treat my body any differently than my job, my spouse or my friend. I’d like to keep it for a while right? Then I need to treat it right – whether I feel like it or not.
This week’s commitment:
Decide today to quit making decisions based on feelings. Your workout is an important job that needs to be done – and it pays really well.
Enjoy the Reward
It’s that Simple.
