And What Was That Excuse?

Sure, we all have rough days.  The kids kept us up during the night, our minds were racing about things that happened at work, or we were stressing out about not loving our day job.  

Morning comes along and the shrill alarm is the last thing we want to hear when it feels as though we’ve only just fallen asleep.

It would be just so easy to hit ‘snooze’ and skip the early morning spin class or run…

Stop right there!

Get up and move.

If there is one thing I’m just as passionate about as I am about teaching Paleo, is the idea of getting everyone moving.  I don’t care if you’re a sixty-three year old woman who’s never sweated a day in her life or a seventeen year old boy who sits still and plays video games all day long- move it!

Look at this picture.

A friend forwarded it along to me yesterday as further inspiration for an upcoming race and quite honestly, it brought tears to my eyes.

Can you even imagine what it must be like to have to overcome losing a limb?  Or both?  And not only persevering but doing so  to the extent that you’re a world class athlete?

Allow this image to become emblazened in your mind and regardless of what hurdles you may have, let it serve to be the impetus for your own personal change and growth.

I don’t know what is more of a shame that having a healthy body that works that one proactively opts to disregard.
