Quote of the Day: “I’m a little tired but I’m going to workout anyway. I’m a little hungry, but I’m sticking to my diet anyway. I’ve failed before but I’m trying it again anyway. I’ll never be perfect, but practice makes me better in every way.” Bonnie Pfiester
Scripture of the Day: “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9
Do It Anyway
We should not let our past, present feelings or experiences keep us from what we want in the future. If you are starting a new fitness routine or diet, you will be sore, tired, hungry, doubful and even frustrated at times. However, you don’t have to let that stop you from trying.
Sadly, there are people who let muscle soreness keep them from going back to the gym. Or, they let a little initial hunger or frustration with the scale keep them from sticking to their diet. We should expect our body to go through some changes as it gets to it’s new routine. Sometimes our body is just fine but our mind wants a treat or a break.
Whatever the temptation is, stick to your goal anyway. Each time you don’t let your body control your actions, each time you decide to stay disciplined no matter what you are feeling, each time you go to the gym when you really just want to go to bed, you will get just a little stronger – and it will make you better and better and better!
This year, no matter what life throws your way, do what you know you need to do anyway.
