Here's one I got from last nights Biggest Loser Show....
Champions don't make excuses!!
Have you ever found yourself wanting to make excuses for why you have not reached your goal? Or why you've not done everything you can to get this done? Or why you have not exercised, kept your calories in line, consumed your water...Ever wanted to make excuses about that?
It's been almost a month since I've seen my trainer. For one reason or another our usual time to get together has not worked out, either she's busy or I'm busy or I have an injury. Whatever!!!
So next Monday, we are scheduled....and I am finding that I want to make excuses as to why I did not get to the gym as much as I should have. Now I have had a back injury.....See how easy it is to make excuses. Yes I've had a back injury, but I could have gone to the pool or walked on the treadmill. I could have even gotten into the hot tub, that might have made it feel better or it would have at least been enjoyable!!
I've also been thinking that I want to have a conversation with her to let her know that it feels like I need to start over...you know...baby step back into the torture!!
I have been really wrestling with that...I just don't want to have pain!
But after hearing that "Champions don't make excuses", I have changed my mind. I am going to my workout with her prepared to work harder than I've ever worked. I'm not going to shy away and make excuses and ask her to baby me. I'm going to go in there and fight....because that's what I'm doing!! I am fighting for my life...I'm taking it back.....because I'm.....
How about you...are you making excuses?
