I’m reposting this blog in honor of Biggest Loser, after they featured my motivational mantra about Big Girl Panties (below) on their social sites today.
“Most of us would rather sit on the couch. But most of us don’t want to look like all we do is sit on the couch.”
Why do we have the need to “FEEL” like working out? To be motivated to train hard or even just show up. Do you think professional athletes always want to roll out of bed at the crack of dawn to train, practice and beat their bodies up day after day? People don’t always want to workout, but people always want the results. Winners choose to workout, even when they don’t feel like it. It’s time to train like a winner.
You Either Want It or Not
If you really want to be thin, get more fit, perform better, run faster, go longer, win your next fight…you have to train – whether you like it or not. Even the most brutal workouts don’t last forever. Think of the facts: the work you do in that short period of time gives you benefits that last hours of feeling amazing, feeling confident, and feeling like a winner.
“Winners choose to workout, even when they don’t feel like it.”
Don’t You Even Think About It
Don’t ponder whether you should workout or not. The answer will always be “Yes, you should”. Pondering it, weighing your options, or renegotiating your schedule and commitments just wastes precious time. Just suck it up, pull up your big girl panties and just do it!
