  3. You wouldn’t skip out on brushing your teeth today would you—eeeewww.
  4. You want to keep the commitment you made to yourself to get healthy.  Breaking commitments is bad for your self-esteem.

  11. Cuz’ you are one sexy Mamma when you train and you know it

  14. It’s a great escape from your problems
  15. Its cheaper than therapy and often more effective
