Baby steps...

Everyday is a new day and a new chance to do better then we did the day before. I'm currently studying for my AFAA personal training certification, I love learning about my health passion.
I read something that really caught my eye..."clients typically can list many negatives involved with exercising (sweat, need to shower, no time, etc.),but the can rarely list more than two benefits." Unfortunately we are all more willing to find an excuse for anything in life that may be able to benefit us, or maybe I just do that ;-).

So my challenge is to drop the negative thoughts and change them to positive ones. Let's see how much more we can accomplish. Things that we may think are difficult, will actually be easier then we think. "I CAN'T," IS A VERY BAD erase it from your vocabulary!!

My goal is to stretch and meditate more. I always make the excuse that I don't have time, and I do...I just really choose not to.

What is your goal and motivation going to be???
