I know why so many people give up. It is hard. It is hard to get up at 5 in the morning and work out. Yes, staying in bed and sleeping that extra hour would be nice. Yes, lounging around Saturday morning is enjoyable. Being able to eat the cookies your co-worker brings to work tastes great. Losing weight is hard. It is not easy. People give up all the time. I know I have before. I found reasons to quit, to cheat, to not live up to my potential.
I guess this is why I am calling it a life change. I am WORKing out. I am fixing myself. I am a much happier now WORKing than sleeping in or being lazy. I thought I was happy when my stomach was full. I ate my feelings. The few times that I have done that lately, I felt like garbage. Mentally and physically, I felt horrible. The crazy thing is that was how I felt every day. I felt like garbage everyday. I was used to the feeling.
I love being healthy, and I love working out. But, I do not love it every day. I do not love freaking plateaus. I do not love being sore. I do love being healthy. I used to think that someday I was going to die of a heart attack or diabetes. How sad is it to know how you are going to die. If you knew how you were going to die, wouldn't you do something to change it? Most of those things are totally preventable. So here I am preventing them; I am living.
It's never too late to start WORKing out. You are worth it. You can change. I know you can, because I did.
