Okay ya’ll long post warning...
Yesterday I started a new program... I was so excited because it’s only 20 minutes a day, and what’s 20 minutes right?!
Time for some real talk..
Today I did NOT want to commit to 20 minutes.
Nothing about today went as I had planned. I didn’t wake up when I wanted, my printer didn’t work for some forms I needed, my eye doctor appointment took way longer than I planned. I was on the phone more than I wanted to be... so many reasons
So... many... excuses
the voices in my head were telling me things like “why bother? what’s one day... you can start again next week.. or move your rest day from Sunday to today... why not? just give up, you always do. you’re a quitter.”
I hate the voices in my head saying I’m not good enough... but even more... I hate when I listen and prove those voices right, giving them undeserved power.
Today. Today I proved those voices wrong. Another voice came through louder and it gave me the power.
That voice... it told me to stop giving excuses and to do this... to believe in myself
"you have to prove those voices wrong... it's only 20 minutes and you'll be glad you did. you deserve this.. for you. for the girl in the mirror. for the little black dress. to prove to yourself you can... to put yourself first. you said 2019 is the year to change and postponing this, or taking a rest day on day 2... is no different than any other year. you have to do this. FOR YOU."
ShaunT is right, this program is about transforming your mind and not just your body.
