friday philosophy

sometimes i come across a quote that bears some kind of significance and i want to share it with you dear readers.  sometimes it's based on where i am in life or a certain event, sometimes a quote just reminds me of a friend, or sometimes it makes me think.  it's called 'friday philosophy' and i'm gonna keep it up weekly. (or try to!)

today i've decided that i will join a gym.

let me preface this statement by saying that i do not enjoy or look forward to working out.  i always feel better once i have worked out and i feel even better after i've kept up with it and notice results, feel healthier and more able, etc.

well, my results aren't happening.  i'm my own worst enemy and have an extremely hard time holding myself accountable.  i'm pretty good at eating well, but i know that for my health and future, i need to exercise more.

and, i've actually been trying to work out more regularly...but i also have been actually making a lot of excuses very regularly.  while a couple of them are valid excuses (at least in my mind), they're more based on my own lack of self-confidence/esteem than they are me actually trying to get out of working out.

i want to work out alone.

really, i just want to have some alone time.  (i work a lot and 99% of the time that i spend at home, mike is there too...which i love...and it's not an offense to anybody, especially mike!...but sometimes i just want to be alone.)  then, when i do have an hour to myself, i can't believe i actually have a chance to kick back on the couch with my laptop searching pinterest while katching up with the kardashians!!  then after an hour of watching those rich b*%@$es that can afford a personal trainer and have enough time in their 'busy working lives' to do whatever the hell they want krazy kardashians...i feel like crap and wished i had just worked out.  (so, in my mind, maybe if i had more alone time, i'd take advantage of it to work out.)

plus, i don't want anyone to see me jiggling around.  so working out alone is better, right?

i can't afford to join a gym.

well, i've decided at this point in my struggles with being fit, i really can't afford not to.  for several reasons.  (plus, after reworking my budget, i can fit a gym membership into the plan.)

1.  i want to lose weight before i get married.  (yeah yeah, i'm not even engaged yet...but it's something i obviously look forward to.)

2.  i want to lose weight before we have a baby.  (yeah yeah, totally in the future...but still, i need to think about my future!  plus, i'll never have any alone time then, so i've gotta prepare for it!)

3.  i need to be healthy or #1 and #2 won't matter.

so, how's that for kicking my own ass into joining a gym?

if i wanna work towards my goals...i've got to give it 100%...dontcha think?

in fitness and in health...
