Mom's Words

Today was the hardest day of the past week.  I was at school much later than expected, I had a huge headache and the gym was the LAST place I wanted to be...

but I went!

I have my mom's words to thank for that.

She made the point last night that actually getting changed for a workout and getting there is the hardest part.  Once you're there, dressed, ready to go - you're good.  So although I had to FIGHT my inner demons that wanted me to come home and nap I kept telling myself, just get to the gym... just get to the gym.

And once there - I was fine!  Caught my 2nd wind, lost the headache, and pushed myself to my hardest workout yet.

Mom knows best.

Go figure.  ;)


  1. I am happy you kept to your goal and you are feeling better! I would have said, "Work it!", but I am gonna say, "You WORKED IT!"
