I’m mentally, physically, and emotionally exhausted today. I’ve slept maybe 6 hours in the past 2 days. When my work day ran over I had to self-talk out of making excuses. On the way to the gym I passed the Thai place and contemplated take out on the way home. As I approached the gym my BFF called and we chatted... and that would’ve made another great excuse because by the time we were done chatting it was way later than what my plan accounted for. My heart was not in it as I climbed on that Crossramp, and it still wasn’t in it halfway through. I wanted to skip weights and use the rush hour crowd as yet another excuse as to why I should just head home. Instead, I did the full Crossramp, did the weights, and then I convinced myself to walk until I hit 10k steps, and this is a daily goal I set and have not yet met. I didn’t stop for Thai, I came home and made a bangin rice bowl. As I’m typing this, I’m imagining many people not reading this far, but really I’m not writing for them, I’m recording my journey, so I can look back on this on those days that I just don’t want to do it and see that I did it anyway, and so I can look back on this when I smash my next goal and give myself credit for doing it anyway when I was looking for every reason not to. . . . . . . . . . .
