Why can't we get our butts to the gym? This may help...
If you are like me, the hardest part about working out is actually changing into your workout clothes, getting in your car and driving to the gym.
Before I even get a chance to get my exercise bra out of the drawer my "other-me" starts convincing me NOT to workout. She says things like, "oh, but you deserve to lounge today" or "skipping the gym ONE day won't hurt", and if that doesn't work the voice pulls out the big guns, "you're tired right Naibe? aren't you soooo tired?". Well guess what, lets tell that voice to SHUT UP!
I decided to cover my ears and say "la la la la", "I can't hear you voice, I cant hear you". l decided to trick that evil side and simply skip changing into my workout clothes at home before it had a chance to conquer me. So I just drove to the Gym with my UGG boots, cute top and even make up on. I just made sure I stuffed my gym bag with the essentials: tennis shoes, socks, sweats, workout bra (don't forget that) and t-shirt. I drove my butt to the gym as if I was going to meet a friend for lunch, parked my car, walked inside, said hi to the gym clerk, and before I knew it, I was in the locker room inspired by the sweaty people cycling at 80mph and the ones doing crunches on the floor. Now the funny thing is, as soon I got my heart pumping on the treadmill, the annoying negative voice was quickly replaced by my very best voice. You know, the one that tells you can conquer the world, follow your dreams, and become all you can be? Yes my good voice was back, yelling sweet nothings in my ear! Ahhhh I love that voice.
