Get your ass in the Gym
February 5, 2013 ·
It took every fiber of my being to get my cardio in tonight….
But I have said this before and I will continue to say it….
The only thing preventing me from having my best workout ever is me....no excuses…
I drug myself into the gym....I was 5 minutes into the stairclimber and little voice was telling me “Ah, you had such a hard day, why don’t you go home and watch a movie.”
Not on my shift ...
Had a great workout; feel like a million bucks.
Moral of this story....
You can wake up sore; or you can wake up sorry…
