Why do you even get out of bed in the morning?  Simple answer – You need to work. Your job pays your bills, supports your family, and supports your lifestyle.  I will ask again now – Why do you even get out of bed in the morning? What is it that gets you out of bed? Your mind.  If your mind is right, everything will follow. Remember the why? They why you get of bed. The why you started exercising the first place?  Even if you have not started yet, think of a reason as to why start now?

Easy answer to that is to be healthy.  BLAH F****** BLAH. I think we all know by now exercise will keep us healthy.  Well no shit. But that is not enough for most people to keep going or to even start.  Why do you want to be healthy? Not to just be healthy. Why?

I want to be around for my girlfriend.  I want to keep myself out of the hospital – the likes of which I have spent too much time in because of poor family health.  I want to be proactive in keeping up with my future kids. Most importantly, my why for getting out of bed – is to be somebody that my mom wanted me to be.

The point is, you need to always hold onto your why.  When you feel like you are not your own priority, remember what gets you out of bed.  Remember why you do the things you do. The mind is a terrible thing to waste, and if your mind is out of it, nothing good can happen.

Is your why to be around for your kids?  How about to feel good going out in public?  Maybe you just want to keep yourself out of the hospital.  You are going to wake up some mornings and try to come up with every excuse in the book to not run, or lift, or exercise, or whatever.  When that happens, just get up.
