B is for Better

B is for Better

Getting to the gym is half the battle. That’s why this week I decided to simplify my goals, and just focus on getting to the gym 6 times this week. It doesn’t have to be a tough work out for it to count as a workout, right? Well sorta… What usually ends up happening is I get to the gym, and I’m surrounded by people working towards their goals. That’s all the motivation I need. Humans are driven by competition, and I can say that it’s personally by biggest motivation. Beating the person next to me.

Sure, my treadmill neighbor today was a 6’2 girl who was running 7.2 her entire run. Not a problem. I ran intervals, so at least I finished at a speed that was comfortable for her to run her whole workout. Who cares. We were both there. Working hard, and getting better. A lot of people thought about getting better today, but that doesn’t mean that they did everything they could to do it.

One day at a time. One step at a time. One forgotten pair of work shoes at a time. I will get better.

  1. I love your drive! I hit a wall sometimes when I’m at the gym, but I just keep on climbing, lifting, and praying. Focusing on God when I work out makes it a spiritual workout as well as a physical one. I feel refreshed when I’m done, exhausted but refreshed. I like the shoes, by the way.

    1. Focusing on bettering my spiritual life helps me in everyday “workout” too. It’s all about moving forward. Thanks for the comment, and love the picture of the dog.

  2. Getting to the gym is hard. It helps having a friend to motivate you and keep you going. I have friends who could do that, but I hate spending money on a membership when I can use our treadmill at home.
