The internet is aglow with images of tennis superstar Serena Williams, who currently graces the cover of New York Magazine.
To say her body is exquisite is an understatement; Serena has six-pack abs to die for.
Watch her play tennis, and you’ll shake your head in amazement at her athleticism.
What About The Rest Of Us?
Well, as for me, I cringe when I see what I call “my mushy middle.” I could certainly stand for a little less body fat and a lot more muscle.
I struggle with effective time management, and sometimes my gym time is sacrificed on the altar of blogging and podcasting time.
I have my weeks of getting into the flow of carving out time for trips to Anytime Fitness; relentlessly pushing myself to get up and go; no excuses.
Something happens to throw me off my exercising game – let me correct that statement and take responsibility for my actions – I allow things to happen and thus throw me off my game.
Monday night was almost one such night, until I remembered the catch phrase and mantra of blogger Kawanda Lamb, a new friend I met at Podcast Movement 2015.
Do It Anyway.
Kaywanda created these baby blue wristbands featuring the words #DoItAnyWay, and she gave me one when we met.
Monday night when I looked up from my laptop the clock read 9:15. Surely it was too late to go to the gym and be fresh the next day.
Of course I happened to be wearing the wristband
darn it and my eyes fell on that hashtag.
I got up, and I went.
And you know what? Once I pushed past the resistance and got in my car, I was fine. When I walked through the doors and got on the elliptical, I felt even better.
So, what’s the thing in your life you need to tell yourself, “Do it anyway?”
Go ahead and push past procrastination, push past negative self-talk, push past laziness – and do it anyway.
