Yesterday morning my persistent friend woke me up at 7:10 to go run/walk. I know I used to wake up every morning at 4:30 am for work, but now that I wake up at 8 or later I find 7 am workouts ridiculous. I didn’t really want to be awake at 7 am but I couldn’t resist when she said, “You might not appreciate it now, but you will one day.”
She was so right. Pain and hard work might not be fun (especially if done at times when you would rather be sleeping) but I know it will be worth it in the end. Being healthier will make my life better and longer. Its totally worth it.
But this experience made me realize how lazy I had gotten. From the beginning of this year til about mid February I was in a complete funk. I didn’t want to work out, I didn’t want to eat anything healthy, I didn’t want to be healthy. I was letting issues with people (well, guys really) get in the way of me being healthy and happy. I let the disappointments from my love life cloud my vision for my own future. Guys come and go but I have to live with myself and my body forever.
I am so glad I have gotten out of that negative funk I was in. I am happy to be working out daily again and eating better and being happier overall. I am in a much better place right now and headed in a much better direction and I am glad.
