How do you exercise every day?
I get this question alot, especially when I say I get up every morning at 5 am to go to the gym, 5 days a week. How do you do It? I can’t do that, I like my sleep, it’s too hard, who wants to get up that early, yes, I’ve heard all the excuses.
Here’s the thing I hate getting up at 5 am, I hate that I feel like an 80 year old at 10 pm because my eyes are rolling in my head and I need sleep. My body hurts, I’m tired, the bed is so warm… yes, I have all these excuses too but I make my head overrule my body, I drag my ass out of bed and I make myself go.
I know how good I am going to feel afterwards, how strong I feel, how I have more energy throughout the day, how I look and feel in my clothes and about myself when I am focused.
I know the benefits of a healthy life, I come from a family who most don’t make it 60 years old, that most have heart conditions yet are still overweight, still smoke, still eat like crap, I decided I am not going out that way. I chose to do this every day.
Wow… there’s that word of the week again…choice.
I chose this lifestyle, I chose to eat shit that’s tasteless, to exercise till every muscle hurts, to go beyond my limits and yes, to get up at the ungodly hour of 5 am every day.
For me I chose to live longer, to be healthy so I can be that grandma at 80 doing triathlons and looking like she’s 60. I want to enjoy all of my life, I want to skydive with my girls, zip line, pole dance, do Ariel yoga, I want to hike 20 miles up a mountain until my calfs are screaming to be able to see a view that’s breathtaking at the top. I do this with my girls now and one day I will doing this with my grandkids as well.
I bike ride on the beach, I walk and run there to clear my head and be one with God and nature. I am up for any adventure because I take care of myself, because I choose to do this.
Don’t whine that you’ve gained weight, that you can’t get up at 5 am, that you have no energy and then say to me it must be nice you are so skinny.
No.. its not nice, it’s alot of frigging hard work, sacrifice and commitment, this doesn’t come easy because if it did you would be doing it too.
Sorry lets be real, the only thing I can be, it’s not easy but anything worth having isn’t easy otherwise we would all be in the Olympics, we would all be millionaires, we would all be living our dreams, it takes hard, hard work and that’s the difference, I am willing to put in the work.
People ask me all the time how do I do all I do. I am up at 5 am to 7:30 at the gym, I write this blog 5 days a week on the treadmill, I’m a single mom, I own a business and work 2 other jobs, I am finishing my second book, I just took up Bachata, salsa dancing and pole dancing classes and next week I am starting a master’s class on public speaking. I just do it, I don’t watch Tv, I don’t lay on the couch after work, I am focused on what I want.
I wish I was this focused during the years I was misrable and married but I am making up for it now. I have an amazing life because I chose to have one, I manifested this whole life and I love It!
But believe me it’s not easy, nothing worth having is.
So today my friends remember I am not special, we are the same, the only difference is I chose to push myself, I chose to be the best I can be, that is how come I exercise every day.
It’s your life chose wisely…
