Sometimes our decisions aren’t based on what we like, but what we dislike. I honestly can say I don’t love working out all the time, but my dislike for feeling unhealthy and flabby outweighs my dislike for exercise.
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the feeling exercise gives me and am always happy I did it, but the fact of the matter is this: If I could look fit without working out I’d skip it – Duh! 🙂 But I’m not that lucky so a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.
Honestly, I’d have to say my hate for feeling fat is actually even greater for my love for feeling fit. Being fit and healthy should be the norm anyway. We all should be taking better care of our bodies – we only get one!
It’s not always about looks – it’s about how you FEEL. Whether feeling fat means actually “being fat” or not, it doesn’t matter. All that matters is how you feel.
So whether you feel fat when you are a size 4 or a size 24, it really doesn’t matter. What counts is what you do about it to make you feel better and feel healthier.
Heaviness, weakness, exhaustion, shortness of breath, tight clothes, sluggishness, etc can all drive you to do things you never thought you’d ever do – and do them well.
Let your HATRED for those things fuel your LOVE for working out.
