Please don’t make me go to the gym

Please don’t make me go to the gym

Yes, I know your shocked that me, the queen of the treadmill…Hello Ms. Treadmill Treats herself, would say this but hey I am human and hell, sometimes I am tired.

This morning after working all day, then having to go grocery shopping, coming home and putting it all away and finally cooking dinner at 9 pm, I fell in bed and maybe fell asleep by 11 and then there goes that dam alarm clock at 4:30 am!

I’m tired.. I’ve been working 12 hour days for weeks, I’ve been getting the house ready for the holidays, cooking and cleaning, believe me, I could sleep for a month!

But I have to get up, I have responsibilities, I have to write this blog 5 days a week, I have to beat this family curse of heart attacks taking out everyone before they turn 50.

And yes, let’s be real, I am somewhat vain and love to be able to rock that sexy black dress even at this age, so this is my motivation to not roll over every day at 5 am.

This morning after I got up and dressed, it was pouring and I thought “Okay, crawl back into bed, you can’t go in this rain” I had a hundred reasons why that bed was calling to me and yet here I am on this dam treadmill yet again!
Yes, my guilty conscience got the best of me…”Remember that party Saturday night….the cruise is in 2 weeks…Christmas and all the parties are right around the corner…did you forget that really sexy new year’s eve dress you bought?” My head kept whispering to me….
“Uuggg okay, okay a little rain won’t kill me” and that is how I am here and not in my warm bed right now.

Yes, it sucks getting up at this time but sometimes we have to do what we don’t want to in life if we want the results. I hear it all the time “Oh must be nice to be so skinny”

My answer is “No, it’s not nice to get up every day at 4:30 am, to eat egg whites every day, hardly any carbs, nothing that taste good at all, running until my side’s hurt and every muscle in my body hurts from lifting weight day after day. Lets not forget knee injuries, shoulder pain and all over creeks from pounding the pavement year after year oh nice…tell me please, what part of that sounds so nice to you?”

Nothing comes easy in this world people, it takes hard work, determination and a never quit attitude, anyone can do this, hell anything becomes a habit after 21 days, you just have to drag your ass to 21 days and then it’s a piece of cake….okay low fat, no carbs, don’t taste good cake anyway, hey just being real here.

So today my friends remember nothing is easy and yes, even I want to throw the alarm through the window at 4:30 am, I know it takes hard work to achieve your goals and I am not a quitter so I will drag my ass out of the bed and on to this treadmill everyday to try to inspire and motivate all of you to never give up, to know that you can do anything you set your mind to and never stop believing anything is possible! Even if my head is screaming please don’t make me go to the gym!
