Never underestimate the power of your attitude.
Today’s “Fitness Motivation” post comes to you via the last two days of my life. Hang in there while I tell you what went down.
Day #1: I snoozed through my alarm because I was just too tired. The 60 minutes that I had left myself to workout became 15, and even then my attitude towards my at-home workout was rather begrudging as secretly I pined to be back in bed. Work was a rather mundane day; I went through the motions and did what I needed to do but otherwise pretty devoid of any more emotion. After a 10 hr day at work I was pretty exhausted and felt that way until my head hit the pillow that night. That night as I went to sleep, I did so with the resolve to make the next day a lot better than this one was.
Day #2: woke up on time to my alarm, jumped out of bed, and went to the gym for a great 60 minute workout with weights. I went to work that day with increased vigor and what I swore to be heightened mental clarity. I never really sunk into that slowed-down and groggy state and was therefore a lot more productive throughout the day. That night as I went to sleep I recounted to myself how much better this day was than the day before. Ultimately my mind came to rest on one question…
“What was the difference?”
