How many times do you sit there watching the clock pass knowing you have to go work out but you’re totally procrastinating?
And so you do all those things that you (finger quote) “really need to do” like open mail, fold laundry, put your DVDs in alphabetical order, you know, all things that absolutely cannot wait another second.
They’re really important.
And then your window to go work out starts to shrink.
And you think, “Well, now I only have exactly 30 minutes door to door! And with the trek to the gym being 10 minutes, that really means only 20 minutes, so now what’s the point?”
Another few minutes goes by because you actually have to go get ready too, and then before you know it, you consider that window closed.
You’ll do it tomorrow.
This might be happening right at this very second because here you are, reading blogs and procrastinating like I am known to do so often.
Now, I challenge you to imagine something else.
What if I told you, “NO EXERCISE FOR YOU!”
Chew on that for a second. For at least the next six weeks. Maybe more. Who knows. Just know that there is NO EXERCISE FOR YOU FOR THE NEXT SIX WEEKS.
Well now, someone’s giving you orders. And no one likes taking orders. “What?!” you’d exclaim! “That’s absurd! Don’t tell ME what to do!” you’d say while lacing up your sneakers and heading out the door before you could barely get that exclamation point out.
Nothing makes you want something more than when someone tells you that you can’t have it, right?
So today, PRETEND someone told you that you can’t.
And then lace up and go prove them wrong.
Do it right now because there are a whole bunch of people who really physically can’t go work out right now and right now you really physically can.
Do it right now because c’mon. YOU KNOW IT FEELS REALLY GOOD. (That’s what she said.)
Do it knowing that exercise isn’t just a right, it’s a privilege.
Go do it JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN.
And have a good workout. Sweat a lot for me. Then come back and tell me how it went so I can live vicariously through you. MKAY?
I promise I’ll pay it forward one day when you’re sitting there climbing the walls and reading blogs for six weeks while you wait for the “all clear.”
