No Excuses!

Yesterday my car broke down, which resulted in me not having a car today. I could have easily stayed home to do my work and I could have cancelled my entire schedule due to my "emergency." Instead I walked about 6 miles one way to get to my destination. Did I like it? No. However, I did look at the positive side of things. I got a workout and I overcame a personal limitation, which is making excuses because it is easy. In turn I got a lot of work done and I feel great. The question to all of you is: how bad do you want to accomplish your goals? If you are trying to lose weight for example, what is it going to take for you to lose weight? Are you willing to wake up early or stay out late after work to workout? Are you willing to discipline your eating habits? Are you willing to meal prep? Are you ready to change? It is so easy to stay home, but change only happens when you put yourself in an uncomfortable, productive position. Weight loss, for example, does not happen by wishing and it does not happen with minimal effort. What is it going to take? When you feel like you don't want to is the right moment to keep going. Get up and go!
