Since the beginning of January I have been getting up at 4:45am to go to the gym. I have been aiming to go at least three times a week but my stretch goal is five days a week. Some mornings it is a struggle to get up. Some mornings it is easy.
Today when the alarm went off I jumped out of bed.
You know why?
Because I want to be successful; I want it bad.
I have always wanted to be part of a fitness community. I enjoy being able to do fun things not just with my kids but for myself.
I have to keep reminding myself of this fact because it is one of the biggest reasons why I am on this prescribed diet.
I don’t need to lose weight because I have a medical condition, I don’t need to lose weight because I need to get off medication. I WANT to lose weight because I want to be active and fit and part of a community of successful people who also have the same goals.
I need to get out of this funk and realize that I am lucky enough to have an option to lose weight.
So, there, attitude adjusted.
