Being Strong in the Midst of the Excuses

Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength.

Getting fit and healthy is hard. I am sure we have all been there done that on the topic. What truly helped me this time around (yes, that means I've tried it before and failed) is having a true reason... a goal... motivation.

I had the best excuse in the world to not to... I mean, I am disabled. Exercise... Me?? Yeah right! I've gained all my weight because, well, I can't workout. It's too hard for me. (Forget the fact that I was eating fast food every day, chips, soda, sweets - that had NOTHING to do with it.) I was overweight because I was handicapped. I was allowing myself to believe that. Others believed that about me too. Finally it clicked... NOO!! I NEED to do something... I CAN... and I did. I am now stronger than I have ever been... physically, mentally and most importantly - Spiritually.

So, I don't buy anyone's excuses. Nobody has a good enough excuse to not take care of themselves. Nobody. So get over it if you do... it is NOT good enough. Go out and do it. Go out and make yourself a priority. Make your someday- TODAY!
