Today, I didn't want to workout. I didn't want to work. And I didn't want to eat any more chicken.
I wanted to lay in bed all day. I wanted to shove my face with Funyuns. I wanted chocolate. I wanted ground turkey. I wanted sleep.
But I didn't give in. I hiked up my big girl pants and went to work.
That's because of this vision I have in my head of what I can achieve physically. And this dream doesn't come easy. No dream does. It requires constant study on diet and exercise and the inner workings of the human body. So does everything else. No matter what you want to achieve, you have to marry knowledge, intelligence and practice.
And what drives me is knowing my life is progressing closer to the end with each breath I breathe. I don't fear it, but I'm painfully aware that my peak fitness days are limited to these brief decades before gravity and deterioration really begin to take their toll.
So when you want something, really want it. Want it so bad it keeps you awake at night. So bad it stops you from giving in to these "don't wanna" days because the longer you become entrenched in a life devoid of new experiences, the harder it becomes to break the chains of complacency.
Life isn't easy. Life isn't fair.
