My New Motto

Tuesday, August 3, 2010

If not now, when?
For example:
     If I don't exercise now, when?
     If I don't eat healthy now, when?
     If I don't clean my kitchen now, when?
     If I don't live the life I wanna live now, when?
     If I'm not healthy now, WHEN???

It makes me realize that if I don't do it now, I'm never gonna do it! And I don't want to live the rest of my life this way...so I do it NOW! Like today: I had talked myself out of running my mile today for so many reasons...until it was 9:30 at night! And finally, I realized "This is ridiculous. You've talked yourself out of this for 12 hours now!" So I did it. I never want to run my mile at night again...it was sort of scary! I think I learned my lesson: get it over with and then it won't be hanging over your head all day and you won't waste time arguing with yourself all day and you won't have to go run in the dark, worried that the bogeyman's gonna get you!

Great Motto!!!! I love that cartoon too, I used that same one in a post a while ago, haha...I think blogging about it also makes us more accountable, so you do it!!!

I am afraid to go out at night...there are lots of boogeymen, so def learn that lesson and get going early and get it over with! Thats how I am, I know if I dont go early, I wont want to later at night...so I say, it's now or never, and I ALWAYS feel better once I go, so I suck it up and do it!!

I love your realization and talking it out in your post...you are on a great path, you're doing awesome!

Thanks, Laury! It is great to have supportive blog friends and I try to do you all proud! :) It's hard to get into the swing of exercising, but the more I do it, the more I wanna do it! It's been a pleasant surprise! :)
