Beachy Beer Funday wouldn’t be half-bad….

Me in Pep-Talking Trainer Mode:
The heat has broken. You can now walk, jog, and ride bikes comfortably outside. You must do so. Today. At some point. For at least 10 minutes. And remember how you feel.

It’s hard to get started—my days start at 5am every day and it’s still hard sometimes. But you know what, once you’re dressed and you hear the up-beat, workout music jamming, you can’t help but get a little excited. And then you sweat. And you realize you’re smiling. And an hour later you’re sore, but you feel strong. Then you go home and opt for a protein shake over the sugary cereal. In fact, you throw the sugary cereal away. And you take your coffee with less sugar and cream. And you pair it with a water.

You’re day has now started perfectly healthy. And you feel strong, happy, and healthy, don’t you?

Remember that feeling. Today. Tomorrow. Friday. Every day. That’s why you need to work out. Because of the strong, accomplished, healthy feelings you encounter when you’re done with that hard, sweaty workout. You burned calories, you strengthened your heart, and you ran 30 seconds more than yesterday. Now that is a win.

Here’s more to keep you smiling and feeling strong….

“Change begins with you and ONLY you. If you want to change your situation you have to change the way you react to it and interact with it. Stop looking outside of yourself for the answers you seek. Use the tools available to you and then turn within. THAT is where you’ll find your truth.” –Unknown
