I want to stay awake till 3.30am, I want to, I want to…
I have a 5 month old. I can’t.
Olympic fever is growing and our world is starting to focus on groups of athletes who have given their all to represent their countries.
I love the Olympics. The flag ceremonies make me sing, the mums and the dads if the competitors make me cry, I love to see people excel.
I am sure gym memberships through Olympic seasons must soar. People become so motivated seeing and hearing the stories of the underdog succeeding.
I haven’t been to the gym all week and my body really feels jarred. It’s such a revolving circle. I don’t go to the gym because I feel exhausted, I feel exhausted because I have not gone to the gym, I feel guilty because I haven’t been exercising, so I eat comfort food to make me feel better, then I feel guilty for eating the comfort food and I declare I need to go to the gym.
How do I break this cycle? How do I achieve the heights that these athletes will in the coming days? How do I allow these games to motivate me once again to live a healthy life?
One step at a time.
One day at a time.
One great decision after another.
Get rid of the guilt, find strength again and make great choices.
Gym, tomorrow: you and me- a date!
