It's a Love-Hate Kinda Thing

by Kris Pitcher

Sorry sister! Or bro...hmm, that didn't come out right. It's like when your mom says - awesome! It's not awesome...Well, sorry sister but you are not gonna love this every time.

We have these heart-to-hearts every now and then and guess what. It's now. I know you don't feel like it. I know you're down in the dumps. I get that you're tired. Once again I'm here to tell you like it is, and it's like this.

You will not jump for joy every time you "get" to do cardio. "We the people" don't jump out of bed at 4:30 am to do our first session of cardio for the day with an ear to ear grin on our face. Anyone who says they do is crazy or lying.

Having said that everyone who finishes at 5:30 am is smiling ear to ear. We have a love-hate relationship with this process. It's normal not to always feel like doing it whether it's your cardio or your lifting. But guess what? I have never been sorry after. Never!

And I know you haven't either. So get off the sadsy train and get your but in gear. It's time to train like a champion. Your competition is training. Your fellow crusaders in weight management are doing their hard work every day to win the battle. We're all slugging along. Get in the game.

Keep your long term goals in mind and think of your love-hate relationship as little steps you must accomplish to get you there. You have to win the battle over the times when you don't feel like it. Now, drag a** to the gym and put a smile on your face while you do it - it's gonna be awesome!
