Today I learned...
I'm a lot tougher than I thought. I headed to the gym with a headache when I really wanted to simply go home instead. Even though I didn't get rid of it during my workout, I felt a sense of accomplishment for two reasons.
First, I pushed through a workout when I wasn't feeling all that great. I was smart and didn't go overboard, but I did 30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of light upper body.
Second, I needed to get to the gym since I've been in a rut of not going. This was the third day in a row that I made it there, and I needed to prove to myself that I wasn't going to cave at the first sign of an obstacle. I've been making one excuse after another lately, and it was important for me to not do so when I'm getting into a bit of a rhythm.
Win-win for sure!
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
