If you have the opportunity in front of you to better yourself TAKE IT. Don't let moments or mornings slip by because of an ache or a pain or even an "I can't keep up". I hurt every frigging day and on top of that I am almost always last now ... Why because I am fat that is why. The slowness comes from the pain, the pain comes from the weight and NONE of that will change by sleeping in and putting off what we all know needs to be done.
I will be the first to admit for the last 3 years my only exercise was a nasty wallow in self pity... andddddd look where that got me. Fat that got me Fat. I wasted away an opportunity that was right at my front door, moments from home and I threw it to the wind because I was PATHETIC that is why. I made more excuses than you can imagine.
I am tired.
I am hurting.
I am sad
I am too busy.
I worked late.
I work tonight.
I will be last.
I could continue this list for an hour I am sure but I think you get the point. And none of those excuses are even valid excuses. Here I am months later, still tired but I go, still hurting because that pain isn't going away until I drop the pounds, still sad because life just is sometimes, still busy because aren't we all... and guess what. Not only am I getting up and DOING IT, I am driving 180 miles to get there so I can!
My friends, no one is going to chase you down, not team mates, not coaches. That is not their responsibility or their job. The job of a team mate, to help, to encourage, to be there for those that SHOW UP. The job of a coach, to lead, to help, to encourage, those that SHOW UP. So what's the answer. SHOW UP!
I know that some of you are reading this thinking oh she is talking about bootcamp, but am I? This is life people. You aren't going to get a place in the world until YOU SHOW UP! Give it your all, don't wait until tomorrow it is not guaranteed. Do the things it takes that will make YOU HAPPY! Is that donut really making you happy or are you just feeding your monster? Is that extra hour of sleep REALLY that important? Is the fear really so strong you can't take a chance at a new life and happiness? Is the jail of normalcy you have built around yourself so comforting that you can't break out to be GREAT?
The opportunity is right here. SHOW UP!
