I was obsessively thinking about running before bed last night.
Like, planning my route.
Thinking about how great I would feel.
Wanting to go RIGHT. NOW.
Of course, by midnight I was thinking "come onnnnn Amber... GO TO SLEEP!"
What is wrong with me?
I'm a firm believer in not being able to change someone. (Duh.)
And that a person will change when they are ready to change.
This was the case for me.
I have spent seven years making excuses for myself.
And I've watched person after person in my life man up and get their asses in gear - catching the fitness bug.
And I sat on the couch.
I have started.
But then stopped.
And then I got some crappy health news.
And it was like a lightbulb went off.
I DON'T WANT TO BE SICK.
I DON'T WANT TO HAVE DIABETES.
I DON'T WANT TO BE ANOTHER STATISTIC.
AND I WANT MY KIDS TO KNOW THAT EXERCISING IS SOMETHING YOU HAVE TO DO!
So I got off my butt - and the rest is history.
I'm still new to the scene.
I know there are going to be setbacks.
But I can tell you it is WAY easier to work my butt off for an hour each day than look in the mirror and think WHAT THE FLICKETY-FLUCK AMBER!!!!????
I can't wait to see where this journey leads me.
Get off the couch peeps - and blog about it - and then let me know you're blogging it!!
GO GET IT!
