After all these years I think I have finally figured out the secret of life....doing things that you don't want to do. That's it so simple. Since starting this blog I have learned so much about myself. I really do want to do better but getting there and doing it is so hard. I am so sore today from my work out last night that I do NOT want to exercise today. But I will do it because I know I can. Life is about learning and making choices and sticking to them.
One of my favorite shows is Workout on BRAVO with Jackie Warner she is so tuff on her skylabers but that it what they need she tells them the truth (lord knows that is what I need). I loved what she said the other night to one of them:
Jackie: Medical problems, disease, sadness, depression, all of that - which this whole group has - can be cured. You break down, and then you say: "No. I'm not going to stop. I'm gonna get to that finish line." And when you do, the powerful feeling takes over you and then you start feeling like you can overcome anything. And I don't mean just in workouts - in life.
God I love HER!!! She hits it right on the head. I wish I could afford her as my trainer.
Over the next few days I am going to be updating my blog with new pictures of my work outs so it will be filled with some of the things that my trainer has me do and I will try and explain them as best I can. I hope these will help many of you on your journey. Just remember no WHINING (I seem to do that some myself ha). Just get up and go and you will appreciate yourself later - and overcome anything! Keep your post coming they inspire me everyday.
