What am I doing....

I had one of those moments this morning when I was attempting to do a push up then transition into a side plank and I caught myself thinking, "What am I doing here, I could still be in bed."  I had a weak moment.  I knew that the burn that I was feeling was me getting stronger and healthy. These boot camp classes literally kick my butt.

I know we all have moments when working out and changing our life when we think like that.  Do not give in.  I had to quickly shake off that feeling and embrace the burn and the difficulty of the class.  Steve our instructor came up after and told me good job and keep working hard.  Someone saying that always means a lot to me. 

Not every day is a great day.  Today was a hard one for me.  Just got to stay motivated and keep going.

If it was easy, everyone would do it. It is NOT easy and you ARE doing it. You are one of a small percentage of people that are taking control of their weight / health / diet / life and choose to do the right thing, even though it is hard. Good on you. You have my admiration and respect.

This proves you're not just another weekend athlete. You're the real deal, Mac. The real deal.
