It’s the first step toward getting the body you really want
You will be that much closer to turning into your childhood superhero
You wouldn’t skip out on brushing your teeth today would you—eeeewww.
You want to keep the commitment you made to yourself to get healthy. Breaking commitments is bad for your self-esteem.
If you blow off your workout today you will be more likely to blow off your workout tomorrow and the hardest thing is to get back on the wagon once you have fallen off…so don’t even go there. Don’t think—just shrink!
You will get weaker, fatter, and uglier if you don’t.
Somewhere deep inside you will be loathing yourself if you don’t
It’s the best natural anti-depressant in the world
You don’t want to be one of those people that don’t work out ,do you?
It’s the safest way possible for you to get rid of that pent-up aggression you have—better for everyone involved.
Cuz’ you are one sexy Mamma when you train and you know it
You will be so much more productive the rest of the day if you train first, so telling yourself you don’t have time is another way of saying you just don’t want to train.
You don’t want to wimp out on the better existence you are planning for yourself
It’s a great escape from your problems
Its cheaper than therapy and often more effective
Because procrastinating and thinking about all the reasons not to takes more time and is much harder than actually working out
Because you are just gonna go in and lift a few light sets, or hitting play on that dvd or drive in and do the first 15 minutes of class ..and within moments you will find yourself giving it your all.
You will sleep better
You will probably eat better after working out hard
You will have more energy
You will be better able to protect yourself and your loved ones if some unexpected bad stuff should happen
You will age more beautifully
It’s awesome to know you are stronger, faster, and healthier now at 42 than when you were 24.
You will have more better sex –‘nuf said
Because right now there’s someone too sick, too paralyzed, or too dead to train. Somewhere someone’s wishing they could train. Give it your all today because you are grateful you aren’t them.
It’s a great life insurance policy against diabetes, heart disease, cancer and many other yucky things.
There’s some Navy Seal who trains his butt off so you can speak your mind. Go to the weight room with gusto for that guy/gal out of gratitude.
