Sometimes I get asked how I do so much. Truth? I don’t do as much as I want to! I always am baffled by ‘bored’ people. I have so much I want to do, see, experience, try, play with… I couldn’t be bored! Likewise, I don’t buy “I don’t have time” excuses. Oh, I get busy. BELIEVE ME, I get busy… but everybody has the same 24 in a day, just different choices and priorities, you know? Own it, rock it out, accept it.
I’m kinda rambling, I know. But with feeling the need to really get back on track with the good changes I established this summer and wanting to go out of 2012 in a super good place, I was checking in with myself and it reminded me that I wanted to share a link or three with you. That is, if you want to know who has been inspiring me like CRAZY for the past seven months and who has helped me really clean some junk out, cut even more excuses, and who encouraged me to jump over to the freeweight side of the gym (which I CRAZY love!) and up my game big time.
That’d be Steve of Nerd Fitness. If you want some no-excuses, no punches pulled, excellent healthy and productive and happy living inspiration – you must read. He breaks it all down so that even scardy cats like me can find themselves doing push-ups. He simplifies it so there aren’t excuses. And I love reading his articles – great reading and I can get lost in the archives so easily. Best of all, he seems like a fun person who is passionate about his message and who is living it daily. I admire all of that. His ‘priorities’ article is a personal fave. Just try saying “I don’t make my health a priority” or “TV is more of a priority than ___” and see how that works. I used to use “I choose ___” but I like using priority even more.
I also love this article about how you can exercise ANYWHERE – it got me started on my current exercise path! There’s so much goodness to be found there – from being inspired by a cartoon to how not to suck at building healthy habits, a Mario Kart guide to momentum, and even some ‘newbie’ posts too. I won’t gush any more – because honestly the site speaks for itself.
Now, I’m off to be more of a robot, and work on leveling up this November!!
