The alarm clock on my phone went off at 4:30 this morning. Rain was falling, thunder rolling, and lightening was flashing across the sky. It was the perfect combination for staying in bed. For a minute, I contemplated going back to sleep. After all, I’ve earned it. I’ll go this afternoon. Summer has started and no one is waking up early in my house. All these thoughts (excuses) ran through my head. I got up after a minute or two and began my morning pre-gym routine.
What’s the point in saying all that? Well, the point is to be successful in anything not just weight loss you have to be consistent and persistent. You have to create the habits for success. In this case, for me, it’s going to the gym in the mornings. Here’s the thing. It’s not about going when I feel like it. Or when the weather is great (Sidenote – if you’re alive, no matter if it’s raining, snowing, sunny, hail, etc… it’s great weather. Just my opinion) It’s about showing up day in and day out. Making decisions that get you closer to your goal. Whatever that may be.
So decide to do something everyday no matter what to get you closer to your dreams and goals.
I’m glad I went this morning. And the guys I’ve become friends with at the gym were glad to see me as well… As I walked in, I was met with someone saying “I see who’s serious and committed. You didn’t let a little rain stop you.” I nodded,smiled, high-fived, and got to work.
