this was AWESOME. Struggled so hard on the last C+J but the people for the next class were all there and were cheering me on and applauded when I got it. Felt sooo good!

Thought of the day:
It is sad when people blame others for their poor fitness. No mater how supportive or unsupportive others are, you are 100% responsible for the decisions you make, from healthy eating to regularly exercising. If you wanted it, you'd make time. You cannot blame anyone else for the work that you aren't willing to put in.

This falls in line with the larger problem of excuses in general. An excuse is nothing more than rationalizing doing or not doing something. It doesn't change what the right thing to do is, it doesn't change the damage you've done. If you commit to your goals, your life won't change, but you'll no longer have excuses. Not because you no longer have long days at work or because people stop having birthdays with cake or anything like that, but because you'll be making the right choices.

Why lie to yourself? If you don't want to change, have some confidence and don't pretend that you're trying so that you.. what? look cool?

I think, according to pintrest, I'm not the only one who feels that way.

  1. No your right...if we want things we will always find time to do them and trying to be fit and healthy is no different. Everyone's routine will not look the same but ultimately if you want it, like you do, it has to as important as a roof over your head. Its that simple I think.
