I worked out on Friday and skipped Saturday. Trying to get my motivation back after it slowly declined over the past week is proving difficult. With school back in full swing my schedule doesn’t always allow for me to get my workout done early in the morning, and as the day goes on my mind gets filled with more and more things, and not thoughts of working out. I know that this is no excuse, I know I can do it if I really want to. But I try to justify skipping my workout or eating something unhealthy by telling myself, “Oh, I don’t have to workout, I look fine, I should enjoy this ice cream cone, I deserve it”. That’s not the point though, I have something to prove to myself and it’s bigger than a six pack. It’s about self-control, perseverance, determination, and willpower. It’s about seeing that hard work really does pay off, and proving to myself that I’m still the girl I used to be, the one who could “move mountains if she wanted to”.
On the bright side, did I mention that I can now do real push ups for the first time in my life? Imagine what else I could do if I stick to it!
