Say to yourself:
I am ready.
You must go beyond how you feel.
I got down on the floor and did five crunches, five leg raises and a ten second plank. I was shaking and it was not comfortable at all. We all know that tender spot on the lower back and buttocks where it’s sore. I don’t like lying down on any floor because it hurts. But I need it, why? Because if I want to lose weight and better myself, I have to do something to make those changes. [I take the pain]
If we are going to be in pain anyhow, why not give yourself reasons worth feeling that pain and possibly have some positive results come from it. I dislike hurting for no reason at all, I can be relaxing and just get a headache. Does not matter what I do, so why not do what matters and make it count.
When finding that strength within, which I know we all have to do each and everyday to make it through. That inner strength allows you to do things greater than you could ever imagine.
“Things change, but the sun always rises the next day. – The bad news: nothing is permanent. The good news: nothing is permanent.”
“Even when it’s hard to move, take small steps forward. – Especially in trying times, it’s important to continuously push yourself forward. Because momentum is everything! As long as you keep the momentum positive – even if you’re moving at a snail’s pace – you’ll eventually get to the finish line. So celebrate every step you take today, no matter how small. Because every step will lead you farther away from where you were yesterday and closer to where you want to be tomorrow. Be it a better life or a dream we long to realize, we reach our destinations by taking many, many small steps in the same direction, one at a time.”
