Iâ€™ve decided that there are two types of people in this world: those who would rather be horizontal on the couch, and those who possess innate motivation to just do it.
Actually, I should clarify: I think some people are more easily self-motivated in certain areas. I should really give myself some credit; I have zero issues getting myself to write (three books in two years isnâ€™t a small feat!). I can write, write, write until my eyelids droop. But I do find myself occasionally making excuses for exercise, which is exactly why I sign up for so many races! Nothing like a deadline to light a fire under my horizontal booty.
Nicoleâ€™s comment about just â€˜sucking it upâ€™ and doing the things you should really stuck with me. So this morning, when my alarm went off way earlier than I wanted it to, I actually pushed myself out of bed and went to the gym.
Tryinâ€™ to create some momentum in my life!
20 minutes on the elliptical + a 15 minute doggie walk = Success!
Pre-workout sunflower butter toast and banana:
And post-workout blueberry and protein powder smoothie.
Now, if I can just motivate myself to suck it up and package up all these shipments (working at the clinic today)â€¦
Are you self-motivated in some ways but not others? Or are you an awesomely lucky suck-it-up and just-do-it kind of person?
