I wake up every morning and I think to myself, “Okay, today will be different.”
But it always turns out to be the same ‘ol-same ‘ol.
Don’t get me wrong, overall I am happy with my life. Alhamdulilah. I am really blessed. MashaAllah.
What I am talking about though is getting my butt in gear and just moving!
I have this huge yard, an elliptical machine, a nice neighborhood with paved streets and sidewalks, and videos to get me moving. MashaAllah. But then when it comes time to JUST DO IT! I don’t.
It is always too easy to get out of the “comfort zone”. It is easier to just sit down with a cup of tea or coffee and watch the news or check my email or read the blogs. It is easier to just go back to sleep for a couple of hours after all of the kids are out of the house. It is easier to just do something else, anything else but exercise.
What can I do to motivate myself?
I read so many things that really make me say, Wow! I wish that I was like that!” but it is easy to say and not DO IT!
This morning I was thinking of things that would actually motivate me to JUST DO IT!
The thought of growing old healthy. I don’t want to grow old and have difficulty walking, have heart disease, or diabetes. A’oothu billah.
I want to be one of those old women who do everything when she grows old. InshaAllah.
I want to look beautiful and not see this chubby face everytime I look into the mirror.
So I want to be motivated to JUST DO IT!
