Walk This Way
“Excuses are only for those people who are unwilling to find the solution, who find greater solace in the loudness of their complaints rather than in the action they are taking to implement the actions that carry them steadily forward to their achievement.”
Today is hot and yesterday was just as hot, but the heat shall not derail my fitness plans! Yesterday evening, I grabbed my athletic shoes and headed outside to walk two miles. Because of the heat, I contemplated for a brief moment going back inside and forgetting about the fitness walk. Truth be told, I would have rather been eating a big bowl of Bruster’s Butter Pecan ice cream.
The thought of the creamy, cold, delicious, pecan-filled treat going down my throat was a strong pull. But somehow I was able to shift my focus and I began the two laps around my subdivision.
It is hot out here!!!
Why am I wearing black?
I need water.
I want- I need Bruster’s Butter Pecan!
I think I should go back home.
I turned my music as loud as it would go and kept pushing. The song that put me into the zone was “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees. It was the perfect song for this workout!
I hit my stride as I came round the corner for the final turn. Home was in view and I sang and danced all the way to the finish line. Despite being hot, I was, undeniably, happy when it was all completed and done! I’m simply staying alive!
