We’re finally getting back into our workout routine. We get up at 4 am everyday 5 days a week to workout. I don’t go to bed until late. I can’t tell you how much I would prefer to be lying in bed attempting to sleep through my nightmares or enjoy my good dreams. I don’t though. Regardless of how much sleep I may get… I get up and workout. I lift weights and do cardio. I love and hate cardio. There are things that are super ridiculously boring. I try to bring a book for those machines (aka stairmaster) but even then I am praying the time flies by. I am working out for myself, for my husband, and for my friends. I want to be healthy and live a good life with them. I can’t do that if I am not doing something to benefit my body.
So many people now only workout to look like magazines, shows, other people. It’s rare that someone does it for themselves. It has to be you first! You have to do it for you! If you don’t… Then it won’t stick. You can’t have someone force you to eat better or workout because when they are gone you don’t have them for help. You have to find the discipline to do what you need to do whether you want to or not. This applies to all aspects of life not just working out and eating healthy.
Make the necessary sacrifices and adjustments to live a healthy happy life. Do it for yourself, then your family… even if it is just for your pets, they need you too.
