I didn’t want to exercise tonight. I tried to talk myself out of it. It has been a long day. It is late. You could use the rest. I gave myself all the excuses.
What did I do? I went for my walk. I put in 30 minutes on the road in 37 degree weather. And just for extra measure I wore shorts. It was cold. It wasn’t fun. However, I got it done. Like normal, it wasn’t as hard as I was making it out to be.
I think this is true of any goal we set for ourselves. Inertia is the hard part. Once we are over that first burst, doing what we have to do gets so much easier.
What goal are you working on? Have you hit a rough spot? Keep pushing. Keep going. You can do this.
